Ear/Sinus Infection Drops ~ Home Remedy ~
What you need:
1/4 c. unrefined organic virgin coconut oil (w/e you have on hand is fine, this is just what I prefer)
3-4 medium pieces fresh, raw garlic

What you do:
Put the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat
De-skin and lightly smash garlic until they are opened a bit, toss them in the mixture
Cover the pan (unless you want to get popped like I did!)
Simmer the two ingredients until the garlic is nice and browned.
Put through a fine mesh strainer (or cheesecloth….or both!) into a mason jar

What do we have?
A nice golden mixture that is warm, soothing, and will cure a sinus and/or ear infection in half the time those icky antibiotics will!!

How to Use:
Get a clean baby medicine dropper (or any other kind of dropper that is clean that will administer a drop at a time). Put in your ear and massage (this is important) the ear and behind the ear down into the neck to allow it to travel through your ear. If doing it for sinuses, drop a couple drops up each nostril and let gravity do its thing by tilting your head back. I like to also massage my sinus cavity area to help move things around too!

I am not a doctor and there are MANY different, wonderful home remedies for sinus/ear infections. This is just the one I use/prefer because I ALWAYS have these 2 ingredients on hand and it takes about 5 mins to make….which is great when you are in pain.

A Little Story:
Not too long ago I was sick with a sinus AND double ear infections. I was miserable! After a couple days of being miserable my husband says to me: Don’t you have some home recipe for infections? I know you hate antibiotics…. There went my light bulb…geez why YES I did have one! I for some reason just didn’t think about using it at the onset of pain to save me those extra days of misery (lessons learned right!) I took a clean baby medicine dropper and put a couple drops in each ear…ahhhh immediate relief! When those were all set in, time for the nostrils! I the warm oil was immediate relief and within about 1 1/2 – 2 days I was completely pain and infection free! Even had a follow up appointment and it was gone. So happy!!

Enjoy!! *Jolene*

    Do you only administer the drops one time? How many drips should I put in each ear for a 19 month old?

    Thanks!
