Ailment: Tinnitus

Remedy: Sesame oil

Sesame oil is widely used in Chinese and traditional medicine. It is warming and soothing. In ayurvedic medicine, it is the best calming oil for a disturbed vata dosha, or constitution.

Only use fresh, organic, cold pressed oil. Sesame oil is damaged by heating. The sesame oil that you buy in Asian grocery stores is toasted.

I got tinnitus eight months back. I tried various medicines but none of them helped. I came across the information that sesame oil works for tinnitus and decided to give it a try. After one week of usage I found my tinnitus alleviated to some extent and now it is less bothering me. I think need to use it for longer duration like 2-3 months, so lets see how it goes...

My husband is down with tinnitus and we are going through a nighmare. He is extremely depressed and unable to concentrate on things. To the extent it is affecing his mental well being. I'm planning to try sesame oil but am scared that it may trigger ear infection if used daily. Could someone please comment on whether daily application of sesame oil in the ears has any risk?

I use sesame oil put into ear and gentle massage behind ear. I also avoid cold water, ice cream, cola, dahi (cold yogurt) and other cold items. Above treatment decrease tinnitus in 7 days.

Seems like it's working for me too. Although my tinnitus is not gone completely, but has reduced to a great extent.

Sesame Oil cured my tinnitus. It soothed it and healed my ears more than any other natural remedy I tried. Invaluable.

I have tried Sesame oil for 2 weeks. It seems to reduced my ear ringing. Now, I don't want to use white noise while sleeping. (Earlier I had to use white noise + fan sound together. Now just fan sound enough) Also, even in silence ringing doesn't make me that irritated in mind. Its like almost absent. Now its at 20-25 decibel. Need to continue my treatment. But sometimes as you said due to cold it increases. Eating ice cream drinking cold water also make it increase in sound. Thanks.
