I always try nasal solutions on myself before applying them on my children. If it’s too strong for me, then it’s much too strong for my kids.
Any time I treat the ears, I also treat the nose and throat since they’re all connected. See also Ear Infection & Tonsillitis Remedy
(This was for my 6-month old baby. Increase dosage for older children or adults. Dilute even more for younger babies. I always try the remedy on myself before applying to my children. Uses Essential Oils. See The Ear Infection Nightmare.)
