Garlic has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties and may help alleviate ear pain. Heat chopped garlic cloves with sesame oil or mustard oil. Once it turns dark, strain the oil and use once cooled. Two to four drops in each ear can offer relief. Cooking fresh cloves in water, crushing them, and adding salt in a compress can also draw out pain and reduce swelling. Do not place garlic or oil in the ear canal if you have a ruptured eardrum or have had ear tubes placed.
