Home Remedies from south India: Ear Aches

This is a continuation of the series which started with Hair Care. The other posts covered Colds, Coughs, Foot problems, Head aches, and Skin care among other topics. The information in this series is the knowledge of my grandmother, which I documented as part of a project on medicinal plants and home remedies.

  1. Nallenna (sesame oil) and Poondu (garlic) is heated with water, covered with cotton and inserted slightly into the ear.
  2. Thengaennai (coconut oil) is warmed and a few drops of it is let flow into the auditory meatus (ear hole).
