Cerumen (wax in the ears) is a natural lubricant secreted by the glands in the auditory canal. Its role is to form a protective barrier against microorganisms and external substances.
The problem is when the cerumen accumulates excessively, blocking the auditory channel and producing uncomfortable symptoms such as tinnitus, hearing loss and itching.

2. Leave the remedy to act for a few minutes, and then tilt your head to remove the excess oil.
