Good morning oily ones,
Although I don't think my blocked ear was due to an infection, I will share my testimony. Also, I have a customer that bought
Helichrysum for her dad (73).A couple years ago, he had an operation on the left ear and neck area to remove cancer.
However, his hearing from that point on was like hearing everything under water hearing. She applied Helichrysum 3-4 times a day for a week or more, and his hearing came back. He was amazed that an oil could do for him what no meds could,
even 2 years later! This may help your mom. Get Dr. Stewart's Vita Flex Technique CD.
It's easy to learn the technique.
This is what I have saved for ringing in ears:
I was having a lot of problems with my ears, doctor said I had water trapped in them. He couldn't tell me how it happened but gave me sample medication. I told him I would try the oils first, as usual and he was agreeable. I used Myrtle on my little finger and put it on the inside of the ear and down my neck on the Eustachian tubes. The ringing stopped in a few days and when I went back to the doctor he said the water was gone. I continued the Myrtle application for about two weeks. Hope this helps.
I had a case of tinnitus and vertigo that after one day of applying the oils was 95% gone and after three days I was 100% well. I had applied Helichrysum with my finger to the ear canal in the morning and at bedtime put Melrose and Lavender on a small piece of cotton fabric which I wore in my ear all night. For maintenence (just to be sure) or because it felt good
I have occasionally applied Panaway with my finger to the ear canal (it has Helichrysum in it) and sometimes Juniper.
Later I had a more stubborn case and started looking into possible emotional patterns. (See "Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils" by Carolyn Mein D.C. a book available thru ESP). I was worried it would never go away since some references say there is no cure.
What I found that worked really great was what Gary suggests in the EDR on P. 272 for tinnitus: Helichrysum with Juniper with finger at ear canal. And apply Juniper with Peppermint and Geranium on the tips of toes and fingers, and on the brainstem. AND (very important I believe) I did vigorous vitaflex on the toes and ear, throat and sinus areas of the TOES and FEET.
That is a penetrating massage I find so painful I sometimes have my husband do it for me so I won't cheat and skip parts. I understand the tenderness indicates the need for stimulation there. Also when he does it for me I can
yell and pound things to distract my attention or to release what ever is there. When he's not home I do it anyway if there's any hint of the start of tinnitus. It worked 100% after the first night's work on my toes (by morning). I was so grateful for the quiet and paranoid of getting tinnitus again I figured I may as well do the application a few more times to strengthen that part of my body. Over time my toes have gotten less tender.
And my ears have stayed well!
I hope this works for you!
TINNITUS (RINGING IN THE EARS)
from the Essential OIls Desk Reference Third Edition
See Also: Hearing Impairment below)
Single Oils: Helichrysum, juniper, geranium, peppermint, lavender, and basil.
. Lavender with basil, layered on temples and forehead.
Massage helichrysum or juniper. Additionally, apply juniper with peppermint and geranium on tips of toes and fingers, and on the
brainstem, so that the oils get into the nerve pathways. It generally takes 12 to 15 minutes to notice a change in hearing. Apply 1 drop of helichrysum on the opening of each ear.
Never pour oils directly into the ear.
. Helichrysum with juniper, peppermint, or geranium.
. Lavender with basil.
. Helichrysum with Purification, ImmuPower, and Melrose.
Put 1 drop ImmuPower on a cotton ball and place in the ear.
NOTE: Never place any essential oil, including helichrysum, directly
into the ear canal. Only rub on the opening of the ear.
. Make sure that your fingernails are short. Place 1-2 drops of
helichrysum, on each index finger.
. Standing behind the person, gently insert index fingers into the
person's ears. Have the person hold head firmly against your chest.
. Rotate your hands (with the index fingers still inserted in ears)
until the palms face upward. Lift fingers alternately (in a rocking
motion) 10 times in each ear to a count of 20.
. Rotate hands 90 degrees until the palms face backwards. Pull back
alternately 5 times in each ear to a count of 10.
. Rotate hands 90 degrees until the palms face downward. Press down
alternately 5 times in each ear to a count of 10.
. Rotate hands 90 degrees until the palms face backward. Put thumbs
behind the fingers. Push forward alternately 5 times in each ear to a
count of 10.
. Rotate hands 90 degrees back to starting position (palms facing
upward). Lift both fingers up once and let down slowly.
. Rotate fingers 90 degrees back and remove slowly.
. Grasp ear lobes, pull down and release.
For the average hearing loss problem, massage Purification on ear lobe,
behind the ears, and down the jaw line (along the Eustachian tube).
Hope this helps you Frank Seeley
THE FOLLOWING IS A TESTIMONIAL:
I had ringing in my ears nearly all my life. 25 years ago I lost most of
the hearing in my left ear. I had been using chloroquine for a malaria
suppressant for 5 years and when returning to the U.S. from overseas
I became deaf when the plane descended to Los Angeles. The
ringing continued. I went to a specialist and he said that the nerve
was dead but because of the chattering in my ear, I could not wear a
hearing aid, as it would only make it worse. I started using Purification
a year ago last November and within 24 hours the ringing stopped. I
had to continue using it daily for about a month. Then the ringing
stopped almost completely so used it sporadically for the next 6 months
as the ringing would return. I also started using helichrysum for the
deafness and I have enough hearing in my left ear that I can now tell
the direction that sounds come from (for the first time in 20 years),
and the ringing has stopped completely.
