Ear ache:

Natural Medicine– Take Vitamin C tablets daily to boost immune system, or eat foods that are rich in vitamin C, such as oranges, broccoli, kiwi or strawberries.

Garlic oil drops can be used to help the symptoms of ear infections. Add 1 drop into each ear, ideally with a different dropper to minimize the risk of spreading infection.

A liquid extract of St John’s Wort, which has antiseptic properties, can also be used for treating ear problems. 

Hold a warm hot-water bottle or heating pad against your ear to relieve the distressing symptoms of an earache

Aromatherapy/Essential Oils Remedy: Rub Lavender and Melrose or Purification( made up of- Lemongrass, Rosemary, Tea Tree Oil, Myrtle, Citronella oils from Young Living) around the outside of the ear and down the side of the neck every 15 minutes while symptoms of the problem are gone. 

Have Wax Build Up in the ear?

One of the best ways to soften ear wax is olive oil. Use cooking olive oil, or buy special dropper medical bottles from pharmacies and insert a couple of drops in the ear. Often, this is the only treatment needed to clear ears from wax build up, although extremely blocked ears may take up to a week to clear.

Eye Strain/Irritation/Allergies

Natural Medicine: Kale, Spinach, peas, zucchini, brussels sprouts, and broccoli are all good sources of lutein, a nutrient that is beneficial for eye health.

For Dry eyes, take 1000 milligrams of flaxseed oil twice a day. This helps encourage tear production and moisturize the eyes.

Aromatherapy/Essential Oils Remedy:   For eye strain, soak a clean washcloth in a bowl of cold water in which 2 drops of lavender essential oil have been added. Place over your eyes for 10 minutes. Wring the washcloth out of course, first.

For Eye Irritation– Add 1 drop of chamomile essential oil to a cup of warm water. Soak 2 cotton balls in the solution, squeeze them out, and then apply to your closed eye for 10 minutes.

Toothache

The traditional way to ease pain is to dab the painful tooth and the gum surrounding it with some cotton balls soaked in clove oil.

Chewing on a peeled garlic clove may also bring some confront/relief

A soothing warm saltwater mouthwash can be repeated several times a day to fight infection- use 1 teaspoon salt to a cup of hot water.

Aromatherapy/Essential Oils Remedy- Rub a little clove or chamomile oil around the affected tooth.
