Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

After 18 months on antibiotics, with little relief, I found an article in the booklet - The Ultimate Antiseptics: 12 Essential Oils that Wipe Out disease-causing Bacteria, Molds and Viruses by Dr Carolyn DeMarco, MD.

From a swab my doctor had taken, at the time of diagnosis, I knew that 'Staphylococcus aureus' was the cause of the infection. This booklet told me that Clove essential oil (with eugenol) kills more than 60 types of bacteria, 15 strains of fungi, and several viruses.

Being keen to try anything, I put a single drop of Clove oil (neat) spread on my 4 outside toe pads - the vitaflex points for the ears - 3 times each day. By the third day, the infection - an itch that when touched was very raw and bloody - has disappeared completely!! I have not had since 3 months ago, any relapse.

Footnote: I have worn hearing aids for over 30 years and have never had a problem with my ear canals ever before, so was very casual when the itch began. My ears became so sore, that I could not even lay my head on the pillow. I was given 5 days of medical treatment - over the Christmas period. This helped but did not offer the ultimate remedy.

I would like to pass this experience onto every hearing aid wearer, I can!
