In addition we will present a 200 year old remedy that will help you get rid of ear pain.
Take a walnut and carefully open it (in half) using a knife. Take out the nut and full the walnut shell with oil.
Carefully place the shell on a heated hotplate and allow it to boil for around 2 minutes. Make sure you do this process carefully in order not to spill the oil. Walnut shell should secret iodine which will combine with the oil. This will increase the healing properties of the oil. Collected the resulting oil using a syringe and carefully put some in the sore ear. The pain disappears immediately!
