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.

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.

The glide is perfect and I have yet to find another product that can rival its positive effects on the skin. And as a therapist who does mostly medical work, it is a wonderful thing to have found a product that none of my clients are allergic to.

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

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.

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

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

I've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

After 35 radiation treatments I recommended your product to my friend for his burns. Like magic it is soothing and healing the area. Wonderful jojoba. Thank you.
