oil of oregano for ear infections?
I usually use mullein/garlic oil for my son's ear infections but I tried this on myself recently (ear infection and swollen glands) and found I woke up the next day with my throat feeling closed in. My son's naturopath said the mullein oil may have been too drying or I could have had an allergic reaction to it. She suggested oil of oregano instead but didn't say how to use it. Online I have read to dilute it and massage it on the area below the ear, or put it on a cotton ball in the ear. Does anyone know how to use this? I have a bottle of extract/oil which is not yet diluted in olive oil. Thanks.
