Well, a friend told me she put it down her child's ear canal. And all along I'm thinking it probably can't hurt anything. But I really don't want to turn my children into my lab rats. Today I woke up from a nap w/ a bit of an earache...I thought...PERFECT, I'll try it on myself and see what happens. Besides smelling...it seems fine to me. I just want to be cautious b/c stuff can build up in the ear and I have heard that ear irrigations really hurt. But I just put more in my ear and some in Eli's as he headed off to bed. Its just oil...the garlic has been drained out of it...so (with fingers crossed) it should be ok. Since we went to the doctor on Friday for a check up and she said his ear are still bad, I really want to find something else to try between now and Thurs...when we go to the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist. And ofcourse they will want to put tubes in his ears!
Off to bed...good night!
