Ear aches and infections are a terrible thing to experience as a child. You not only have a fever that can make you weak, but you also have to confront the constant pain in your ear.
This “magic salt sock” will help to combat that and it’s very simple to put together, as you will only need a sock and some salt.
You will need about 1 – 1.5 cups of Coarse Sea Salt. It has to be coarse or it will seep out of the sock. It also has to be sea salt as regular table salt is not the same…
- Take the pan and put it on the stove to medium heat.
- Put the Coarse Sea Salt into the sock and tie a knot at the end so it doesn’t come out.
- Place the sock in the pan and heat it. Be careful not to overheat, you don’t want to burn yourself or anybody else. Usually, you won’t need more that 5-6 minutes for that.
- Place the sock on the ear with problems and you will feel the tension ease in just a few minutes.
If you have fever don’t try to push it down, it is the bodies natural process to kill the bacteria, and the minerals from the salt retain the heat and release the pressure from inside the ear. The salt sock will ease the pain like magic!
