Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
For years I have had problems with my ears itching. An ear specialist told me the itching was caused by dry skin in my ears, but then he prescribed a steroid drop to put in my ears. It did work to stop the itching, but I began to wonder if it was safe to use because every time I would go to the pharmacy to have it filled, I would be called aside by the pharmacist and cautioned not to use it any more often than necessary.
I finally stopped using it on my own and decided to try some oils to deal with the problem. I've seen all the cautions about putting oils directly into the ear and was even told by one of the top people in Young Living that the reason you shouldn't put oils directly into the ear canal is that the ear drum is a thin tissue, and the oils are very potent, so they could destroy the ear drum. At first I used Melrose on a cotton ball in my ear, following the instructions in the essential oils reference book; then I found that if I put a small amount of Melrose on a q-tip and swabbed out my ear canal, being careful not to go too deep, the Melrose stopped the itching!
