This might be a bit of a curveball and something somewhat out of the ordinary here at Techaeris. When you think about technology, you don’t necessarily think about eardrops. Though when they’re pitched as eardrops meant to rejuvenate the ears of those that wear earbuds a lot, I had to investigate further. You may have noticed, but I have reviewed a few pairs of earbuds (with even more coming soon). Even when I don’t have a fresh pair to review, I’m usually listening to music via earbuds when I’m at work, so I am a prime candidate for Wally’s Natural Organic Ear Oil. So how are my ears feeling these days? Keep reading to find out.
This would be where we normally talk about a product’s specifications, though that doesn’t quite fit here. Wally’s Natural Organic Ear Oil contains the following ingredients, all of which are certified organic:
- Olive Oil
- Lavender Oil
- Mullein Extract
- Tea Tree Oil
- Echinacea Extract
- Garlic Oil
Your one ounce bottle comes in a white cardboard box. The Wally’s logo, as well as some product information is on the front of the box. The bottle itself has the same Wally’s logo and product information, and also lets you know that the product has been dermatologist tested. The cap is a dropper style cap with a slightly curved glass dropper to apply the drops.
You’re asked to shake the drops thoroughly before applying, and to then apply one to three drops to each ear twice per day, or as needed. You’re warned to dab any excess liquid, and that is absolutely a good idea. If the drops hit your shirt or other clothes it will definitely stain. I learned that one the hard way. Otherwise just let the drops absorb into your ear canal.
When a product contains garlic oil, you might be a bit worried about the odor, no matter how much you may like garlic. The drops are actually pretty pleasant smelling, and don’t have an overpowering odor.
Said to “comfort ears” and relieve “dry, agitated ears,” the drops do certainly lubricate your ear canal. I don’t know that my ears have ever been particularly agitated or dry, but the drops aren’t unpleasant by any means. Some of the ingredients — particularly lavender oil and tea tree oil — were almost certainly chosen for some of the effects that their essential oils are known for. A quick search for essential oils and their uses will tell you that lavender oil is especially known as a beneficial oil. Lavender and tea tree oils are used for some of the following ailments:
Lavender Oil — eases anxiety/tension, helps insomnia, itching, dry skin
Tea Tree Oil — general cleaner, odor remover
Some people swear by essential oils and their uses and benefits. I mentioned that the drops do have a pleasant scent, and even though I’m generally a pretty laid back person, the scent was rather relaxing too. That doesn’t really say anything about what the drops do for your ears, but it’s not a bad side effect.
If you wear ear buds a lot, or generally have dry or irritated ears, Wally’s Natural Organic Ear Oil is a relatively inexpensive solution. Each 1 oz bottle will run you $12.59, and depending on your usage, should last you for quite some time. The soothing and calming effects are an added bonus for keeping your ears lubricated.
