Earwax is a substance found naturally in the inner ear, which protects it from bacteria and other particles or organisms that can harm this delicate area.
When there is too much wax in the ear, you’ll probably experience some of the following symptoms:
- Itching in the ear canal
- feeling as if the ears are full or clogged
- oily ears
- bad hearing
Homemade remedies for ear wax removal
Mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide with water. Make sure that it is hydrogen peroxide, which is commercially available. Put a few drops in the ear and shake your head to drain down into the ear canal.
Glycerin is a natural product that helps soften the wax for easy removal. You can find it in pharmacies and to put four drops in each ear, three times a day for best results.
VINEGAR AND ALCOHOL
Mix equal parts of vinegar and alcohol in a small bowl. Dip a cotton cloth in a mixture and apply a few drops in both ears.
Olive oil is another great ingredient that helps soften the wax and facilitate its removal. Put two or three drops of olive oil in the ear before going to bed and try to sleep on the opposite side. Repeat this treatment for three or four nights in a row.
