One of my favorite herbal remedies has to be this ear oil from Pharmaca. I am very thankful that it has successfully treated my daughter's ear infections. My daughter had her first ear infection when she was about 3 years old. She did not complain of her ears hurting and the only symptoms she had was a cough and a low grade fever that came and went for 4 days so I took her to see the pediatrician. Both ears were infected and bright red inside. I was shocked. You would think that her ears would be hurting her but she never complained. My pediatrician rarely ever prescribes antibiotics or medications and this was the first time she ever suggested antibiotics for Amelia. I knew I had a bottle of this ear oil at home so I filled out the prescription at the pharmacy to have on had just in case the ear oil did not work. As soon as we got home I warmed the bottle of ear oil and put a few drops in each ear and did this ever 1-2 hours until bed time. Amelia still had a low grade fever when she went to bed but by morning her fever had broken and did not return. I continued to put warmed drops in her ears ever 2-3 hours on that second day. On the 3rd and 4th day I used the drops ever 3-4 hours. After a week I took Amelia back to the pediatrician's to have her ears checked to make sure the drops were working and sure enough, her ears were back to normal!
I now use the drops when Amelia has a nasty mucusy cold to prevent an ear infection. I have personally used the warmed drops for an earache. It is so soothing and gets rid of the pain very quickly.
The herbal oil contains Mullein Flower Oil, Coptis Root Oil, Garlic Bulb Oil, and Arnica Flower Oil.
