Also referred to as otitis media, an ear infection is a mildly painful inflammation of the middle ear that usually occurs between the ear drum and the Eustachian tube. Natural remedies with anti-inflammatory properties can help ease the pain and even completely treat the ache. This remedy presents a list of natural ingredients and home-based components which you can use to help your baby feel better from the pain of ear infection.

Ingredients

Olive oil: This is a natural oil that is derived from the olives, the fruit of olive tree. The predominant fatty acid in olive oil is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid which consists of 73% of the total oil content. Studies have shown that oleic acid helps to lower inflammation and may also be critical on genes associated with cancer. The main protection against inflammation is enhanced by the antioxidants. Key among these antioxidants includes oleocenthal whose functioning has been compared to ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory drug.

This is generally safe to use especially in small quantities to help ease the pain of earaches for babies. However, before using olive oil, it is important to seek medical advice and checkup to ensure that the eardrums are not raptured.

Sesame oil: Sesame oil is rather widely known cooking oil used in Chinese, Japanes and Middle Eastern cuisines. It is derived from raw or roasted sesame seeds which come from the sesame plant scientifically known as Sesamum indicum. While the sesame seeds are rich in proteins and B-vitamins, the sesame oil contains fatty acids and antioxidants that include Vitamin E and phytosterols. The health benefits of sesame oil include providing a reliable source of heart-friendly fats, fighting inflammation, and guarding the skin against sun damage. It is because of the anti-inflammatory properties that it is used in easing earache pains.
