      I would love to hear from my fellow sufferers on putting Castor Oil in my ears. Here are my questions:

      1. My tinnitus is only in my left ear. Do I still put the oil in both ears or just the one?
      2. I’ve been putting the oil in my left ear for 4 days. The tinnitus is worse. Does it get worse before it gets better?

      Thanks team!

      I think you should stop doing that now.
      My humble opinion.

      I'm sorry to have to tell you this, after you've started, but putting castor oil in ears to cure or lessen tinnitus is an old wives tale and possibly not a good idea, health-wise.

      Go study tinnitus and look at the anatomy of the ear. Nothing that you put in your ear canal can help tinnitus unless your tinnitus is from earwax and it is something to remove the earwax.

      The problem is usually from some sort of damage or disfunction of the inner ear and your eardrum blocks off anything, except a syringe, from getting from your outer ear to your middle ear, let alone your inner ear.

      Thanks everyone for your replies. I’ve stopped putting the Caster Oil in my ears. I’m sad since I really thought it would help.

      Hi @Joseygal -- You may want to consider mullein-garlic oil... The following quote is from THIS POST. -- BTW, I tried castor oil as well, and like you, experienced increased tinnitus volume, though it was modest. I bought some mullein garlic oil drops, but have yet to try them. Still a bit gun shy I guess.

      Castor oil didn't help my tinnitus either. Interesting the garlic oil post -- I have been using garlic some due to antifungal and heavy metal effects - I eat it raw and also put a slice in each cheek - initially I was trying to get rid of cold but found it reduced tinnitus.

      If you don't want to put oil in your ear - I don't either after real bad tinnitus using sesame oil in my ears since I had not olive oil... dumb dumb dumb... you might treat your ear from the mouth side. Maybe swish the oil around like a tooth pull or gargle???

      I don't know for sure... just putting it out there. Ear tubes drain into back of throat right? I think garlic has sulfur so if heavy metal related, the sulfur and mercury would bind - making the mercury sort of less toxic - so it couldn't stick to other molecules.

      When I was on the internet trying to find something that would help, I not only found caster oil, but garlic could help as well. I ordered garlic supplements. They haven’t arrived yet, but I am going to try that. Since reading John Adams post, I am hesitant to put anything in my ear that won’t reach the source of the problem and may make matter worse.

      I’ve noticed so many posts on Tinnitus talk about the noise but not about the sense of motion. Do you all experience the sense of motion as well?
