Ear Wax: White Vinegar Instead of Q-tips

September 12, 2015 2 min read

Are you one of those types of people who think that earwax is disgusting and should be removed from the ears each time you shower? This is far from the truth. The bad reputation that ear wax has is only based on hearsay. The yellow wax substance that produces in the ears is naturally produced by the body and it can be beneficial to our health in multiple ways. The wax assists with protecting the inner ear from dirt, dust, and infections, as well as other germs and bacteria that would enter them. The wax acts as a protective barrier on delicate skin within the ear canal and will prevent it from getting irritated if water happens to get inside the ear. It will also moisturize, as well as keep the skin from becoming itchy, flaky, and dry. ear wax The waxy substance is produced by tiny hair follicles, which line the ear canal. It typically will make its way out of the ear opening on its own. However, it can sometimes cause blockage issues by building up. The typical way that someone cleans the wax out of their ears is with a Q-tip. This method actually pushes the wax back even further, which increases the risk of blockage. What you can do instead is wash the outside of the area gently with a washcloth. If you think that there is a blockage of wax buildup, you can try an all-natural method to rinse it out. You only need rubbing alcohol and white vinegar. First, get a small container and fill it to the half-filled mark with white vinegar and an equal part of rubbing alcohol. Now, tilt your head to the side. This is so that your ear will be levelled and will be able to keep the liquid in. Be sure to stay still for a minute, and then sit back up to allow the liquid to drain from your ear. You can repeat this up to twice each day until your ears feel like they are cleared up. If the issue lasts for more than three days, it is time to visit a doctor as it could be something serious. This method should only be used if there is water or ear wax in the ear, or minor ear infections. Check out the video for more information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=laNLvkWYWBs Do you still find ear wax disgusting now that you know this? Will you give the natural remedy a try?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.
