Ear Pain Remedy
Use a knife to open a walnut in half. Remove the nut and pour oil in the walnut shell.
Gently place the walnut shell on a moderately heated hot plate and let it boil for about two minutes. Remember that this is a process that requires precision because a small reckless move can result in oil spill.
The basic idea is to use the iodine secreted by the walnut shell along with the oil. The iodine will significantly improve the positive healing effects of the oil. Use a syringe to collect this oil and carefully pour some oil in the affected ear. The pain will be eliminated in a matter of minutes.
