Whenever you suffer from an annoying and painful headache or earache, garlic can help relieve
your misery. Just put a few drops of garlic oil on a cotton ball (or take a peeled clove of garlic),
and gently place it in the opening of your ear.
Once you start to feel a heat sensation spreading through your ear, the irritation and pain will
begin to subside. Leave the cotton ball (or garlic clove) in your ear for at least 30-35 minutes or
longer, and if you want you can even leave it in overnight. Garlic is effective at treating ear
infections because of its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties; it kills the bacteria and germs
in your inner ear which are causing the pain. In addition, its antiseptic properties reduce the risk
of further or future infection. Garlic is also anti-inflammatory and can work wonders at reducing
the swelling and throbbing that accompanies ear aches. Last but not least, eating garlic will give
your immune system a boost because it's packed with nutrients like Vitamins C and B6, fiber,
potassium, and calcium. Instead of meds, pop some garlic that has been proven to help reduce
the severity of symptoms associated with the flu and common cold.
Whether you place it in your ear, or you eat it, a little bit of garlic can be an immense benefit to you!.
