Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 30 drops


  • 2 tbsp olive oil or fractionated coconut oil
  • 2 cloves raw garlic crushed
  • 6-8 drops tea tree oil


  • Heat oil in a small pan and add crushed garlic. Cook over low heat until garlic becomes fragrant, about 3-4 minutes, and garlic is infused in oil. Remove from heat.
  • Strain oil and pour into a sterile glass amber dropper bottle. Add 6-8 drops of tea tree oil. Shake well.
  • Drop 1-2 drops oil in ear as needed. Lie on side and gently massage behind ears, about 5 minutes to allow oil to absorb in ear. Use once per day as needed to support ear infections and ear health. 


  • Make sure the garlic is roughly chopped or crushed to release juices.
  • Keep refrigerated for up to 1 week. Reheat oil as needed when using, and make a new batch after that 1 week timeframe to ensure purity.
  • To reheat, place the bottle of ear oil in a bowl of hot water for 1-2 minutes. Ensure the oil is not too hot by testing a drop on your hand. You can also use a thermometer to test the temperature of the oil.
