The Right Way to Remove the Ear Wax

  • June 1, 2017

The ear is a delicate and intricate body part, including the skin of the ear canal and the eardrum. Therefore, special care should be given to this part of the body. To clean the ears, wash the external ear with a cloth, but do not insert anything into the ear canal. Most cases of ear wax blockage respond to home treatments used to soften wax.


Earwax is one of those bodily fluids that’s usually out of sight and it is not pretty. In this article, we will show you ear wax removal solution that can be used at home in only a few steps. All you need is an olive oil.

  • Start by placing room temperature olive oil into an ear dropper.
  • Next, put a few drops of olive oil in the affected ear twice daily for 3 to 4 days, and lay on your side for several minutes to allow the oil to penetrate the wax more deeply.
  • After your last planned treatment, and if necessary to get the wax out, use a bulb syringe to gently spray warm water into the ear to encourage the lubricated wax to fall from the ear.


Olive oil is a simple and easily available wax-softening agent. This oil will help get rid of wax without affecting negatively on your ears. Using olive oil means you do not have to worry about dryness or irritation, as the oil will coat the sensitive skin in your ear and protect it.
