Otex Olive Oil Ear Drops - 10ml
What are Otex Olive Oil Ear Drops?
Otex Olive Oil Ear Drops help to soften the hardened ear wax within your ears that causes blockage in your ear canal. These ear drops contain nothing but olive oil, making this the perfect natural way to clear your ears. Ideal for those who don’t want to use medicated ear drops.
Why are my ears blocked with earwax?
There are many reasons why earwax can harden and cause blockage in your ears. Some of the most common causes of ear wax blockage include:
- Your ears naturally produce a lot of earwax.
- Your ear canals are narrow.
- You have a lot of hair growing in your ear canals.
- Your age – earwax can become naturally harder as you get older.
- You use a hearing aid, ear plugs or another in ear device that pushes earwax back into your ear.
How will these ear drops clear my blocked ears naturally?
Otex Olive Oil Ear Drops contain EP grade virgin olive oil which helps to soften hardened ear wax in your ear canals. This helps it to move naturally out of the ear and can prepare the earwax to be syringed out of the ear by a doctor or nurse.
Can I use these ear drops if I have a hearing aid?
You should not use Otex Olive Oil ear drops if you have a hearing air or are using any other in-ear treatment. If you’re suffering with blocked ears while using a hearing aid, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Can I use this product if I have tinnitus?

Can I use this product if I’m using other medication?
You should not sue Otex Olive Oil Ear Drops if you are putting anything else in your ear, including other ear drops or ear medicines. However, this product is not known to affect any medications which aren’t used in the ear and should be safe to use alongside your other medications. If you’re ever unsure about using different treatments at the same time, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
