Many people don't know that baby oil has many uses, other than to massage baby, and these practical uses could really help you on a daily basis.
The first use is to use baby oil to remove ear wax plugs.It also works with olive oil, almond oil and mineral oil.
3-4 drops of oil should be placed in the ear canal 1 to 2 times a day for 3 to 7 days. Warm the oil in your hands for a few minutes (never put it in the microwave!), Then pour drops in the ear canal, head tilted to the side. Stay in this position for a few minutes, then insert a cotton pad to keep the oil at the bottom of the ear.
Usually, after 3 days you should feel that the wax plug is being removed and is going off your ear. Otherwise, continue to apply oil for up to 7 days. If after 7 days your ear wax plug is still not gone, consult a doctor who will use a mechanical method to dislodge the wax plug, if necessary.
