Glendalby Ear Oil helps calm ear infections, ear pain and can loosen ear wax.
The combination of the mullein flower & the garlic make this ear oil a powerful product, Glendalby ear oil is also a safe and natural product to use on children. (For severe infection, especially in children, you should consult a physician. Do not use it on children under one year of age.)
Ear infections can often come with a significant amount of pain, typically caused by fluid build-up. Fluid retention can be due to any number of things like allergies, common colds, sinus infections, or other illnesses. Some people have even reported a reduction in tinnitus with this oil.
When combined, mullein and garlic oil may help reduce swelling and congestion within the lymph system, allowing fluid to flow and releasing any build-up in the ears. In addition, the olive oil can help soften the earwax making it easier to remove, and the garlic can neutralize bacteria that may be festering in the ear canal. So, it’s easy to understand why so many uses and swear by this natural remedy.
Great for kids and adults and can easily be applied by dribbling a few drops of body temperature oil into the ear canal with a dropper and letting it rest with the affected side up for ten minutes.
Next, gently plug the ear canal with a cotton ball to catch the oil and any sediment or infection. Continue rest with the afflicted side down for another ten minutes, then remove the soiled cotton ball and throw it away. You can do this every hour if the pain persists; otherwise, two to three times a day should be sufficient to draw out infection and reduce swelling.

Garlic is like the spartan warrior of microbial intrusions. This sulphury herb is high in antioxidants, minerals, and even enzymes and has been proven time and time again to have antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral abilities.
A study published in 2004 by the European Food Research and Technology found that garlic was highly effective at inhibiting the growth of ten different bacteria strains, including e. coli and Streptococcus pneumoniae, which happens to be responsible for ear infections. This evidence supports the long-standing therapeutic use of garlic as a natural antibiotic.

Roman soldiers, among other cultures, used mullein stalks dipped in grease or wax as torches. Additionally, a yellow dye may be obtained by boiling the yellow mullein flowers in water. The flowers were also used to help with ear associated problems.
Its medicinal potential was taken up quickly by First Nation people of North America as an aid to pulmonary illnesses. Also, mullein root was powdered and made into poultices for wound care, rashes, and infection by the Zuni people of New Mexico. Mullein leaves were also used to line shoes to help keep feet warm and due to the softness of the leaves, mullien was used as toilet roll.
