A simple and effective method of softening or naturally removing ear wax and reducing the need for syringing, or to facilitate syringing should it prove necessary. Earol has a simple, yet unique delivery system capable of delivering a unit dose of olive oil to the outer ear, enhancing ease of use, reducing over-application and significantly reducing spillage and mess. Earol delivers a metered dose of olive oil to the auditory canal. There is unpublished data to suggest that olive oil--in combination with the bodyandrsquo;s natural cleansing system--may negate the requirement for syringing, which could represent a huge cost benefit to the NHS. Earol is a registered trademark of H L Healthcare. Earol is highly intuitive and easy to use. Simply place the actuator into the opening of the auditory canal, tilt your head slightly to one side and depress the actuator. This can then be followed by gently massaging the tragus. Unlike past practice, there is no need for a cotton wool stopper and the you won't suffer any additional hearing impairment due to a cotton wool wad or swamping of the auditory canal. Also there is no requirement for other persons to be present when using Earol.
