Directions for use

External use

Recommended Doses

Adults, the elderly and children over 1 year: Using the dropper, place 2-3 drops of room temperature oil into the ear. Gently massage around the outside of the ear. NEVER insert the dropper or any solid object into the ear.

Children under 5 years
Younger children should have their ear wax problem diagnosed by the doctor before treatment with Olive Oil commences. Treatment of young children (under 5 years) should be under medical supervision of the doctor or nurse.

Dosage Schedule

Use twice a day for up to seven days.

Self Care Advice

Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it doesn’t and blocks the ear, patients are advised to put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in their ear twice a day for a few days.


Can a patient remove the wax?

Patients are advised not to use their fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove earwax.

This will push it in and make it worse. Care Extra Virgin Olive Oil Eardrops will help to soften and remove earwax.

How long will it take to unblock?

Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of the ear, especially at night while lying down.

Can a GP remove the earwax?

Not all GP practices remove earwax.

Some can flush the wax out with water (ear irrigation) or suck the wax out (microsuction). These treatments are usually painless. Patients may have to pay to have them done privately.
