1. Denatured Grain Alcohol
A small amount of alcohol is added to help dry up the humid environment in the ear that when left unchecked, allows bacteria and other parasites to flourish. Alcohol also helps disinfect the ears. Grain alcohol is a drinkable alcohol made from natural grains like corn and barley, then “denatured”, or made to taste terrible, so that it can not be consumed by enterprising humans. Because the amount added is so little, the burn associated with pouring alcohol on a wound does not occur.
2. Organic Mullein Leaf Extract
According to herbalist Jim Mcdonald, mullein (scientifically known as Verbascum thapsus) eases pain and speeds recovery time. Mullein is a safe medical herb commonly used to treat fungal and ear infections as well as general inflammation. Mullein has been taken orally for 1000’s of years all over the world.
