  1. Is this oil the same as Vacha lasunadi kerathailam of Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala. Can it be used for ear wax removal. How many drops can be put and how long will it take? Will we need to warm the oil before putting and how long should it be left in the ear?

  2. I have Ear itching for very long period. I used to take Canditonic ear drops , which when stopped again my Ear start itching . Is this vachala sunadi kera thailam help permanently cure my Ear itching. Karthic
