"Should I put oil in my ears before I come for my visit?"

While this is not essential, it is always helpful to do this prior to your visit. 



When should you do it?

At least 1-2 days prior to your visit is useful.



What oil is best?

  • Use a cooking oil, such as olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, or rice bran oil.
  • It's best not to use any oil with a fragrance (i.e. baby oil), as this can irritate sensitive skin in the ear canal.


How to put oil in your ear:


  • Use a dropper (can be purchased at a chemist), or put a small amount of oil on a teaspoon.
  • Lie on your side and place a large ball of cotton wool (not cotton buds) into the ear canal gently so as not to allow the oil to escape.
  • Stay on your side for at least 2-3 minutes.
  • It is not necessary to warm the oil.
