Our ears are self-cleaning; therefore you do not need to take any further steps to clean them. Wax is basically a combination of fat and oils that are secreted by the skin along the ear canal. The purpose of the wax is to trap dirt and particles and keep them from reaching the eardrum. Earwax tends to fall out all by itself, without us even noticing what is happening.
Outer Ear Cleaning
During or after your shower, manipulate a washcloth into a size to fit the curves of your outer ear. Be careful not to force water from the washcloth into the ear canal. Go in and around a few times, but do not get too rough as ears are very sensitive and need a natural layer of oils to protect the ear. If you insist on a cotton swab, keep it completely out of the inner ear canal.
Ear Wax Removal Home Remedy
Obtain paraffin oil or if you lack mineral oil – take extra virgin olive oil.
Warm about 2-3 tablespoons (e.g.over a candle) a little above body temperature.
Fill an eye dropper with the warm oil.
Lie on your side, with the ear to be de-waxed up.
Drop a few drops of warm oil into your ear canal.
Lie still for about 5-10 minutes.
Get up and empty oil into the sink.
Do this procedure once a day for the following 4-5 days. This will soften the wax, or may even dissolve it completely.
