5 Home Remedies for Tinnitus

If you’ve noticed a ringing in your ear that’s seemingly unrelated to other health conditions (like being hungry or feeling dizzy), then you may be experiencing tinnitus. Though it’s not necessarily indicative of a more serious ailment, tinnitus can be bothersome during your daily routine. Check out these five home remedies if you’re looking for a way to treat your tinnitus.

1. Noise cancellation

Tinnitus is often caused by loud noises in your surrounding environment—especially banging. If your home is next to a busy construction site, for example, you may experience tinnitus as a result. There are several things you can do to minimize noise. You can try using ambient noise—like the sound of a fan or a sleep noise-maker—to draw your attention to the closer sound, rather than the loud sound that’s further away. Alternatively, you can try noise-cancelling headphones.

2. Meditation

Tinnitus can be brought on by stress. If you’re mentally or emotionally overwhelmed, tinnitus can be your body’s way of telling you it needs a few moments of pause. Meditation can be a great way to heed your body’s call. Try sitting on a pillow in a quiet place, or even putting a pillow up against the wall to give you some back support while you sit. Close your eyes, breathe deep, and place the backs of your hands on your knees. Roll your shoulders down your back, and give yourself 10 minutes of doing and planning nothing.

3. Castor oil

When applied inside your ears, castor oil will help to restore the normal functioning of cells inside the ear and stop those buzzing and ringing sounds. This oil contains ingredients that are antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory, enhancing your immune system and fighting against bacteria and fungi that could can cause tinnitus.


• Take few drops of castor oil
• Put these drops inside your ear, and cover it with a cotton ball.
• Use it regularly and it will lessen the tinnitus in a few days.

3. Steeped oregano

Oregano is an antiviral that helps your body to fight off bacteria and inflammation. It also contains antioxidants that help with inflammation. If you’re getting an infection or inflammation of the ear, oregano could be helpful in prevention and healing. Steep some oregano in a cup of water, just as you would lose leaf tea, and enjoy as a warm cup of tea. Warm water is also great for ear infections and swollen glands, so this one is a double whammy.

4. Green tea

Decaffeinated tea in general (e.g. chamomile or peppermint) could help with tinnitus, but popular thinking suggests that green tea is the real warrior. Fighting off free radicals, green tea can help ease tinnitus—just make sure it’s decaf, as too much caffeine has been blamed for bringing on tinnitus.

5. Natural oils

Oils are really making a comeback on the health market today, thanks to their aromatherapy uses and the fact that some oils have properties capable of helping with hypertension, sleep, and stress. Natural oils have even been credited with increasing blood circulation and promoting deep breathing. Try rosemary, rose or lavender oils at the first sign of tinnitus, and apply a small amount to inner ear right above your lobe. You can also massage some into your ear lobe for relaxation.
