Karana Purana (filling the ears with oil)

Why would I want to fill my ears with oil?
Well firstly, it promotes immediate feelings of peace and calm. If you’ve had a bad day or have trouble sleeping, it’s lovely to do this treatment before bed. It’s a GREAT treatment for children of any age.
It is also used for the treatment of –
- Ringing in the ears
- Eye strain
- TMJ (pain/clicking in the jaw)
- Anxiety or worry
- Improves hearing
- Loosens ear wax
- Strengthens the bones in the ear
- Prevents neck stiffness and sore shoulders
You can do it as often as you want, but at least once a week is recommended as a preventative medicine. It doesn’t take long – just 10 to 20 minutes at the most, and don’t worry, the oil runs out easily when you turn your head over.
Please note: Do not do this treatment when you have been swimming or showering as oil and water don’t mix…
