Usually ear infections are treated with antibiotics. However, many children suffer from repeated ear infections and it is unhealthy to use antibiotics that regularly.

Tea tree oil is a natural alternative to antibiotics for healing ear infections.

Tea tree oil has become a popular substitute for synthetic disinfectants and medical antibiotics. Though the oil can be found in a multitude of household products from bathroom cleansers and air fresheners to soaps, shampoos and toothpaste, its ability to help heal ear infections in children should not be overlooked.

Tea Tree Oil Kill Bacterial Infections

Ear infections are a common childhood condition. It occurs when liquid that is trapped in the ear becomes stagnant and infected with bacteria. Though a round of antibiotics usually clears the infection many parents are now concerned with the overuse of antibiotics, especially in the case of ear infections.

The Tea Tree Oil Bible recommends trying this remedy for your child's next ear infection:

Add 5-10 drops of warm tea tree oil to 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, mix thoroughly and trickle a small amount into the ear as needed.

Tea tree oil is from the leaves of an Australian tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) from the Myrtaceae family. Used by Australia's aboriginal people, its disinfectant quality was noted by the Western world as early as 1770 during Captain Cook's first Journey to Australia. Throughout the early 1900s, the tea tree was only found near Lismore, Australia.

Now, with tea tree oil's healing powers becoming so well known, farmers and manufacturers harvest the tree across Australia and California, While tea tree oil is readily available, it is important to look for a good quality oil. Quality tea tree oil has at least 30% terpinen-4-ol (the healing property) and no more than 15% cineole.
