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
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • 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…
