Dr. Oz mentioned previously that hydrogen peroxide is a great home remedy for killing ear infections, but Elizabeth (a guest on Dr. Oz’s show) said that garlic is her secret to curing ear infections and earaches.
Dr. Oz agreed and said that his wife does a similar treatment when anyone in his home gets an ear infection, but she puts the garlic in olive oil first. This works because of the amazing anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties found in a head of garlic.
Here is the garlic clove home remedy for ear infections and earaches:
1. Remove a clove of garlic from a fresh head of garlic.
2. Place the clove of garlic in the ear that hurts or is infected.
3. Place a band-aid over the opening of your ear to make sure the garlic clove stays in your ear.
4. Go to sleep and when you wake-up, your earache or ear infection will be cured!
5. Make sure to remove the garlic clove and band-aid in the morning.
