My oldest son, who is 15 years old, was dealing with a host of issues after going to encampment for a week in freezing cold temperatures in north Texas. These issues started with allergies, congestion, and cough which led to fever, inner ear pain, and eye mucous.

He complained of an earache yesterday, in which, I looked at his inner ear with an over the counter otoscope. I noticed that his right inner ear wasn't pink like the left inner ear. In fact, it was very irritated looking, and was blood red in color.

We began with a garlic poultice, which was 1 Clove of garlic mixed with olive oil, heated very slightly just to warm. Then drained the garlic off by pouring it through a cup towel. Important you don't want any garlic pieces in the ear as it can burn the tissue. I had read several years ago, in fact, that the warm (body temperature) olive oil soothes the ear while the garlic gets rid of the infection.

My son was given no sugar during this time, and of course NingXia Red juice was a must as it boosts the immune system. Before bed the inner ear was still red after two applications of the poultice.

Next I decided to mix Lavender, ImmuPower, and Thieves, 2 drops each in the palm of my hand, and added V-6 to dilute. I soaked up the mixture with cotton and placed in his ear. The next morning to my surprise the inner ear looked like the left side, pink. He had no more pain! Praise the Lord!! These therapeutic-grade essential oils have blessed our family in countless ways!

1.Associated topics: ear-ache-/-infection-(Otitis),ears — "Essential oils or their components placed in the ear canal can provide effective treatment of acute otitis media."Link
2.Associated topics: cough — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: ears — "[We] evaluate[d] the efficacy of the Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] in improving cochlear flow and symptoms... for patients with Meniere’s disease (MD), tinnitus, and cochlear hypoperfusion.... Symptoms of Meniere’s disease [spontaneous vertigo, positional vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, pressure in the ear, unsteady gait], flow at cochlear level, and tinnitus improved in Pycnogenol subjects...."Link
4.Associated topics: ear-ache-/-infection-(Otitis),ears — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
5.Associated topics: seasonal-allergies — "The lemon-based nasal spray [containing Lemon, Melaleuca Quinquenervia, and Ravintsara] was a good alternative to conventional medicine for the treatment of perennial [pet dander, dust mites] and seasonal allergic and vasomotor rhinopathy."Link
6.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
7.Associated topics: immune-system — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
8.Associated topics: allergic-reaction,seasonal-allergies — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
