Geranium is recognized as a natural and homeopathic remedy and is widely
used in a variety of conditions, including sore throat, intestinal flu,
skin lesions, and others. It is included in the homeopathic pharmacopeia
of the United States. Geranium has been studied extensively and results
demonstrate geranium has several beneficial effects, making it
especially suitable for treating ear infection.
I. Geranium has strong, anti-viral and
anti-bacterial properties (8, 9, 10, 11). More importantly, geranium
anti-infective activity is directed against many respiratory microbes
known to cause otitis media, including influenza virus, streptococcus, pneumococcus, staphylococcus and haemophilus.
II. When geranium preparation is applied to the
skin surface it produces a significant topical analgesic effect (12).
III. Geranium also has an anti-inflammatory
effect through suppression of white blood cells (cells that produce
inflammation) at the contact site. This is very important, since
inflammation in the middle ear is what causes fluid build up and pain
The combination of anti-infective,
anti-inflammatory, and local anesthetic effects makes geranium the best
natural remedy for otitis media.
