Hi, I had middle ear infection. Now the fluid has drained, but the tinnitus which came up at the time of the infection has not gone. It's the buzzing sound in the ear. Kindly advise.

Holy basil is another good natural remedy for treating tinnitus. Its antibacterial properties can kill the bacteria that may be causing the problem. Plus, this herb can give you relief from ear pain. 1. Put a handful of basil leaves in a blender to make a paste. 2. Put the paste on a strainer and press with a spoon to extract the juice. 3. Warm the basil juice slightly. 4. Using a dropper, put two or three drops of it in the affected ear. 5. Repeat twice daily for three or four days.
