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.

My swimmer girl gets two to three cases of swimmer's ear a year. We always know when she has it because it is very painful to sleep on it. If we take her to the doctor, they usually prescribe an antibiotic and treat it like an ear infection.

This week when she said it was hurting, I decided to try essential oils instead of a trip to the Minute Clinic. Within two applications the pain was minimized, and within 8 hours it was completely healed!

I applied Lavender, Purification, and Clove essential oils all around the outside of the ear and behind, in front, and down the side of her neck to promote drainage of the fluids. I applied a total of 4 times in an 8-hour period.

It is antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antiseptic.

It is a blend of essential oils that have many of the same properties as Lavender. This blend promotes the discharging of mucus, thus helping fluid to drain off the ear. Lemongrass, which is a vasodilator, is in this blend. It improves circulation and wakes up the lymphatic system.

It is also antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic (among other things). I used this essential oil in a carrier oil to numb the pain.

We avoided antibiotics or any of the nasty side effects that can result from them. And because essential oils are adaptogens, they do exactly what your body needs them to do and no more! Yay oils!
