Shyanne often had ear aches when she was little. A lot of children do. Ear infections, ear aches, swimmer’s ear, and in dogs and cats we have yeast infections and ear mites. One single ear drop can take care of it all.
Take 1 clove of garlic (more is not better) sliced in half and combine with 1/2 cup of olive oil in a sauce pan. If you have a willow tree, take some of the leaves or a 1/2 inch twig. If you have mullein flowers, use those. If you have a health food store you can pick up willow bark or you can purchase it online. Use about 2 teaspoons.
Now over medium-low heat gently shake the pan every minute or so to keep the oil from burning. Do this for 20 minutes until the smell of garlic is evident. Cool and use a cotton ball, cotton swab, or dropper to administer a few drops in affected ear.
Or, work ahead of time. Add all ingredients into a half pint jar and place in sunny window for two weeks. Done.
This little concoction can save you in the middle of the night with a screaming baby or hundreds of dollars at the vet with a dog who won’t stop scratching his ears!
So simple. So effective.
