We produce the oily substance called ear wax to protect our eardrum, however the amount of ear wax produced varies from person to person but too much of ear wax build up could lead to loss of hearing.
Olive Oil is a natural lubricant which gently softens and helps remove ear wax.
Directions of use:
Adults, the elderly and children over 1 year: Tilt your head sideways with the affected ear facing upwards.
Avoid touching the ear with the dropper.
Using the dropper place 2 – 3 drops of the oil at room temperature into the ear, gently massage around the outside of the ear.
Do not insert the dropper or any solid objects into the ear.
Allow a few minutes for the drops to reach the ear drum by keeping the head tilted and repeat in the other ear if required.
Use a tissue to wipe away any product that runs from the ear.
Use the drops twice a day for up to seven days.
Children under the age of 5 years: Children should have their ear wax problem diagnosed by the doctor before treatment is to be used.
