Today, we present you a 200 year old remedy that will help you get rid of ear pain.
Carefully open a walnut using a knife. Take out the nut and fill the walnut shell with oil.
Place the shell on a heated hotplate, allowing it to boil for around 2 minutes. This process needs to be done carefully, in order not to spill the oil. The walnut shell should secrete iodine which will combine with the oil. This will increase the healing properties of the oil. Collectthe resulting oil using a syringe and carefully put some in the sore ear. The pain disappears immediately.
