71. Garlic poultice for earaches.
Edited on Tue Dec-14-10 12:22 PM by Blue_In_AK
Steam the garlic until soft, put it in the ear and hold it in with some cotton. In the morning, the earache should be gone, and the blob of garlic comes out with the cotton. This always worked for my kids when they were little so they very rarely got antibiotics. It got to the point where they would ask for it whenever they felt an earache coming on.
