Gentle Ear Cleaning with Jojoba

We’ve all heard that we should never stick anything smaller than our fingers in our ears, and yet many of us persist in using cotton swabs to clean our ears. For many of us this doesn’t cause any issues, but for some it does. There are a wide variety of ways to clear the wax and buildup out of our ears: peroxide, warm oil, etc. It’s probably not a big surprise that jojoba works very well for this as well. If you want to add herbal benefits you can infuse the jojoba with garlic and mullein, two classic herbal treatments for ear issues.

For maintenance ear cleaning, simply add a drop or two of jojoba to each ear a few minutes before showering. This will help soften and remove wax buildup as well as conditioning the ear in case of dryness (just like it does with skin). While showering, it will drain slowly from the ear, you may want to wash behind the ear if you used more than a drop or two (or used garlic infused jojoba as it will smell like garlic).

To make an herbal infusion for the ear, take one garlic clove, crush it lightly and warm slightly in jojoba taking care not to get it too hot (around 120-150 degrees F is a good temperature). Add a Tablespoon of dried mullein flowers if you have them. Allow to cool, strain and put in a dropper bottle. Label and store in a cool, dry place, use within a year. If your ears are bothering you, take a teaspoon of this infused jojoba, warm slightly, pour into an ear, lay on side to keep the mix in the ear for a few minutes. Then put a cotton ball in the ear and repeat it on the other side. You can do this a few times a day to help clear up mild ear issues. If you suspect a perforated eardrum, have ear pain, or fluid draining from the ear, contact your physician before using this.

I have been using your product for years and I love it! It is the only product I use for the face and body!

Debra Peters

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.

I like doing business with companies that care, and I feel that you do.

Thank you for a fabulous product and great customer care!!

The results were instant! My hair not only had sheen, but totally eliminated the friz!
I threw away all of the other goopey hair gels.

Terri Swain

Your customer service is impeccable and goes above and beyond. It is so refreshing!

Melody

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

Jackie

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

I just want to let you know how much I love your Jojoba. I have been using it for about 10 years now, after seeing it at a massage convention. One year I decided to go cheaper and found my sheets smelling rancid and after throwing them out decided I'd never do that again.

Thank you so much for providing a wonderful product. I have been using your golden jojoba in my skincare products for many years and all my customers (and me) love it.

The Jojoba esters is an excellent bodywork tool (multiple treatment modalities) as well as at home for my skin. I've even used it to mix with essential oils and given it as a gift.
