For the many cultures of the Mediterranean, sweet oil, a derivative of olive oil, has been a source of wonder, wealth and power. Today, sweet oil is often used as a softening agent and can also be used in place of moisturizer during the winter.
To soften earwax for removal, warm Humco Sweet Oil by holding the bottle under hot water. Warm the bottle until the oil is warm, not hot. Test the oil on your forearm to insure it is just warm. Using a dropper, put 3 to 4 drops into the ear canal. Place a clean cotton ball into the outer ear canal to keep the oil in place. After 3 to 5 minutes, use a ear syringe filled with warm water, to gently syringe the ear and remove the oil and softened ear wax. Do not insert the tip of the ear syringe into the ear canal, just into the outer ear area. Repeat for the other ear if necessary. This procedure may need to be repeated weekly until all wax is removed and then as often as required.
Available at most Wal-Mart locations and many local pharmacies
