5. Use Coconut Oil to Relieve an Earache
Is an earache getting you down?
Instead of dealing with the pain or reaching for a prescription medication, warm up some coconut oil.
After it cools enough to be tolerable, put a couple of drops in your ear. This can help break up wax and may make the pain go away, at least temporarily.
You can also place a warm compress on your ear for additional pain relief.
