I have been reading about different ear cleansing methods and how many people have success with olive, coconut, or almond oils.

Ok so I gave it a go and put a little almond oil in my ear that was so plugged with wax and water I could hardly hear. A weird feeling for awhile, but it seemed ok. The next morning I was hearing better and most of the wax had made its way to the surface for easy cleaning. A steamy shower helped the rest of it make its way out and things are just fine.

That's an interesting tip; thanks for sharing! I'm glad the almond oil worked for you. It's definitely not something I would have thought of on my own, lol.

Do you just put the oil in...or do you heat it???
