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 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. Homeopathic treatment also useful to treat it. Above treatment decrease tinnitus in 7 days.

My wife is suffering from tinnitus for last 6 months. She tried madition tinnex but no success. I suggest her for badam rogan (fine sweet almond oil), and she is using it from one week and now she is feeling good, the ringing noise in her ear has been decreased.

I have tinnitus & will give the sesame oil a go. I bought a nasal wash bottle from the chemist. I put 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon of salt & a pinch of baking soda in 500ml of preboiled water then rinse my sinuses out with the bottle, (instructions are on the bottle & easy to follow). I do this 2-3 times a day & it has decreased the level of noise. Make sure you put the salt in ... it hurts like hell otherwise ! Also I hold my nose & "blow" as many times a day as I remember. Thankyou for the tip on the sesame oil, I will let you know how I get on.

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

It worked for me. Acupuncture also helped.

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.

In reply to Emy. Why don't you try the sesame oil treatment? It is most unlikely to do any harm, and may result in an improvement or cure. Please leave a message to let us know how it goes.

I got tinnitus for no reason. I have not exposed to any music. Now I'm having ringing up-to 35 decibels. I use white noise while sleeping. Are you sure Sesame oil cured ringing? Please i'm looking for an answer. I have checked with ENT, Homeopathy and now doing Ayurveda. Not seems to be working.
