Fiona has put garlic in her ears for years because it works wonders every time she gets an earache. I asked her if I could share her method with you. She agreed.
1. Select a Large Clove of Garlic
Be sure the size of the clove is generous enough so it won't be able to disappear into the depths of your ear (which would kind of defeat the purpose of this exercise)
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil (Be sure the oil is not too hot). Place the clove in the warm oil for a few minutes.
3. Remove the clove from the oil and place it in the aching ear.
4. Position yourself so the oil can run off the garlic and into the ear canal. Stay that way for 5 minutes.
5. Remove the clove.
This process can be repeated if necessary (but Fiona recommends waiting a while first).
