What are Care Olive Oil Ear Drops?
Care Olive Oil Ear Drops help to unblock your ears when you are suffering with ear wax build up. They soften ear wax, making it much easier to remove from the ears and helping it to leave the ear naturally. Ideal for those looking for a natural way to relieve blocked ears.
Why are my ears blocked?
There are many reasons why you may be dealing with ear wax build up in your ears. Some of the most common reasons for ear wax blockage include:
- Your ears produce a lot of wax – some people make more wax than others.
- Your ear canals are hairy.
- Your ear canals are narrow.
- Your age – as you get older ear wax becomes harder and more difficult to remove naturally.
- You use hearing aids, ear plugs, or other in ear products – they can push wax further into the ear.
How will these ear drops help to unblock my ears?
Care Olive Oil Ear Drops unblock your ears by softening the ear wax that is blocking your ear canal. This helps the ear wax to fall out naturally or prepares it to be syringed out of the ear more easily by a doctor or nurse.
