Children are especially susceptible to discomfort and congestion in the ear. If you've ever cared for a child struggling with these issues, you know how miserable it can be. That's why Plant Therapy developed Ear Ease, an essential oil synergy that is completely safe to use on adults and children ages 2 and up. KidSafe Ear Ease contains congestion-clearing Rosalina, sanitizing Palmarosa and Tea Tree, and soothing Chamomile Roman and Lavender. Just a few drops of Ear Ease will help put a smile back on the sweet face of your little one. Please check with your doctor first to make sure the eardrum is not perforated before using any drops in the ear. If there are tubes in the ear, please check with your doctor before use. Apply 1-3 drops on the outside of the ear and gently massage the area in front of the ear and down towards the neck. If irritation or congestion still persists, try applying 1-2 drops of Ear Ease to a small wad of cotton and gently insert partially into the ear, then gently apply 1 drop of Ear Ease to the area in front of the ear. For an alternative method, tilt head sideways and apply 1-2 drops into the ear 2 times a day or as needed. Keep head tilted for at least 2 minutes after application or gently place a cotton in ear to keep drops in. Slightly warm the oil before application by sealing the bottle in a zip lock bag and immersing it in warm water. Check with your doctor before using this alternative method to make sure the eardrum is not perforated before using any drops in the ear. If there are tubes in the ear, please check with your doctor before use. Do not store with bulb dropper in the bottle. After every use, replace with original cap and orifice reducer. Dropper is included. Shelf Life: Users can expect a shelf life of 9-12 months under proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight). Refrigeration is recommended.
