If you would like make your own here is a good recipe.
* Rub properly diluted lavender on the outside of the ear, along the front and the back.
* You can also try salt water in the ear. (one teaspoon of salt in one-half cup of warm water) Tilt your head sideways and put a few drops of this solution into the ear.
Leave it for some time, and then tilt your head towards the opposite side to drain out the solution. Hydrogen Peroxide in the ear can also be helpful.
If you need help with proper dilution, please see the info here.

* According to The Complete Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Handbook by Lora Cantele, you can use drops of oil on a cotton ball and place gently in the ear. She suggests 6 drops of essential oil diluted in 1 tsp (or 5 ml) of a carrier oil and then take 3 drops of that pre-diluted blend and drop onto a cotton ball. Please do not just drop undiluted oil onto a cotton ball.
