This post came up as a memory on Facebook and made me think maybe I should be blogging instead of gigantic-posting. This blog post is for entertainment purposes only. ;-)
I used a candle according to the instructions and I'd say we got a burnt umber crayon out of there! Then we put Young Living's Purification oil (Mmm!) on a cotton ball and gently tucked that in the ear. He laid down and out the water came! ☺
On a serious note, Purification Essential oil can help support our ears. The oil doesn't go IN the ear, but it can go on a cotton ball. Also, rubbing diluted oil around the ear can help ears that hurt- both big and little.
I also must share that the comments on my page in regard to this post had a couple horror stories of people catching things on fire in an attempt to ear-candle, including their hair! There were also successes using simple rubbing alcohol. Again - for entertainment purposes only!
