This Is What Happens When You Put Garlic In Your Ear Overnight

Whenever you suffer from an annoying and painful headache or earache, garlic can help relieve your misery. Just put a few drops of garlic oil on a cotton ball (or take a peeled clove of garlic), and gently place it in the opening of your ear.

Once you start to feel a heat sensation spreading through your ear, the irritation and pain will begin to subside. Leave the cotton ball (or garlic clove) in your ear for at least 30-35 minutes or longer, and if you want you can even leave it in overnight.

Garlic is effective at treating ear infections because of its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties; it kills the bacteria and germs in your inner ear which are causing the pain. In addition, its antiseptic properties reduce the risk of further or future infection. Garlic is also anti-inflammatory and can work wonders at reducing the swelling and throbbing that accompanies ear aches.

Last but not least, eating garlic will give your immune system a boost because it's packed with nutrients like Vitamins C and B6, fiber, potassium, and calcium. Instead of meds, pop some garlic that has been proven to help reduce the severity of symptoms associated with the flu and common cold.

Whether you place it in your ear, or you eat it, a little bit of garlic can be an immense benefit to you!
