What to do if your infant has an earache or anyone else- use some or all but not all at the same time:
-use a hot water bottle, 10 minutes on and off for an hour, repeat if necessary
-rub under the ear in a downward motion
-put some breast milk in the ear
-put some hydrogen peroxide in the ear
-give the baby Kyolic garlic drops internally
-give the baby Natren Life Start, children's probiotic drops as directed
-make the following recipe to use 2 times a day, 4 to 8 drops in the painful ear as needed: 2 teaspoons honey, 2 teaspoons raw apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons pure water, 20 drops rubbing alcohol, 20 drops Kyolic garlic drops.
-blow dryer to dry and warm ear on low, not too close.
(as always Consult your doctor :) if you feel you must)
-Mullein Oil (garlic) ear drops

Beeswax Candles

So, what's so great about beeswax anyway?
Beeswax is a natural substance made by bees in contrast to paraffin which is a chemical bi-product of the oil industry. Beeswax candles burn brighter, longer and with less soot than any other and it does NOT emit toxins to pollute the air you breathe. Beeswax candles emit negative ions when burned which has been shown to clean the air and invigorate the body. Beeswax gets it's color and aroma from the honey and pollen that is packed into the honeycomb cells by the bees that secreted and formed it into the familiar hexagonal pattern. [Unlike soy candles, beeswax candles do not break down in 10 months. These candles store indefinitely under the proper conditions i.e. not in a furnace.][Paraffin is made from the bottom of the barrel of left over residue from refining petroleum. This product produces carcinogens and soot when burned equal to some of the same toxins produced by burning diesel fuel. In fact, if you read the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for Paraffin Fume, it states to "Keep away from heat & ignition sources" and to "Avoid breathing vapors". (Hard to do when your burning these type of candles in your home.)]
Here is a great place to buy beeswax candles, they're handmade and have the best price: Please note the burn time on these candles.
