Mastoiditis is an ear infection manifested as swallowing (bump) behind the ear. This condition is most common amongst children and it can be dangerous, this is why we recommend that you take immediate action and rush to the doctor. Before following this natural treatment for mastoiditis, please consult with a natural doctor first. Now let’s get to the remedy.
The Natural Treatment for Mastoiditis with Propolis & Herbs
In the evening, right before bedtime, clean the ear very well with a cotton pad soaked in a concentrated infusion made of calendula and chamomile. To make this infusion steep 2 tsp of dried calendula flowers and 2 tsp of dried chamomile flowers in 150 ml of hot water. Cover and infuse for 10 minutes, then strain the tea. Leave to cool a little and use it while it’s still warm.
After thoroughly washing the infected ear with this infusion, pour 3 drops of mild propolis extract and 6 drops of olive oil into the infected ear. Lay down on the side of your healthy ear for about 30 minutes, so that the propolis and olive oil penetrate deep into the ear canal. Then change sides and lay on the infected ear for 15 minutes. Very important! Put a towel over your pillow, because the propolis can leak out and stain your pillowcase or bedsheets.
The next morning clean the ear/s as thoroughly as possible. For this, use a small piece of cotton (from a cotton ball or cotton pad) soaked in the same already made concentrated infusion with calendula and chamomile (approx. 5 ml of infusion). But this time add 3 drops of propolis tincture into the warm infusion before using it to wash the ear. Do not add olive oil to it, just the propolis extract. Keep the piece of cotton inside your ear for the rest of the day, until the evening, when you repeat the process from the previous evening. It’s a nighttime routine and a morning routine. Usually, after 7-10 days of daily application, the mastoiditis infection is completely gone.
