Metered Dose Olive Oil Spray with Tea Tree Oil, 10ml

EarolSwim® acts as an invisible ear plug, protecting the ears from water ingress during water-based activities such as swimming, scuba diving and even showering. Particularly when swimming in unhygienic water, preventing water trapping, which could lead to Otitis Externa and other bacterial infections in the ears is highly important, and EarolSwim® makes this possible.

Applied before entering the water, EarolSwim® is clinically proven to reduce the incidence of trapped water in the ears, soothe irritation and help reduce the feeling of fullness in the ears.

Customer Reviews

Been using this when my daughter started swimming as she was always getting upset ears after, started using this and never had a problem again. Helps protect her even now when she goes away. Fantastic!

Jason / 5.0 out of 5 stars

This product is excellent for stopping water pooling in your ears after washing your hair in the shower. Since using it I have had no ear infections.

RJ / 5.0 out of 5 stars

We have used these on two holidays for both our children and this has prevented any ear infections, easy to use. Would recommend and will continue to order when travelling abroad and the kids are going to be using a pool.

Sam / 5.0 out of 5 stars

Best earwax remover i`ve used!: I`d had stubburn earwax in one ear that eventually began to make it hard to hear in my left ear. Used this for a week twice a day and it worked wonders, miles better than that well known other make. Get a big thumbs up from me.

Frequently Asked Questions


To create a waterproof barrier in the ear, just one spray of EarolSwim® in each ear will work immediately. This is because oil and water do not mix; EarolSwim® creates an “invisible ear plug” which stops water from entering the inner ear from the moment it is applied for a minimum of six hours.



One spray of EarolSwim® Tea Tree Oil, in each ear, used before entering the water will last for at least six hours2. There is no need to keep applying the product during the same session. It is safe to use EarolSwim® daily, as there are currently no known side effects.



Because oil is hydrophobic, it will not mix easily with water3. When the inner ear is coated with the oil in EarolSwim®, water is not able to pass through.



EarolSwim® is readily available, as an over-the-counter product supplied by many UK retailers and pharmacies. Read more about where to buy Earol® products.

Ear Care Advice

Your ears are highly sensitive and complex organs, and looking after them is as important as any other personal hygiene. It is recommended4 to clean the outer ear regularly with warm soapy water and a gentle cloth, but you should never insert objects smaller than your elbow into the ear canal.5

Using EarolSwim® before swimming, scuba-diving or playing water sports reduces the risk of water trapping, which could lead to bacterial infections such as Otitis Externa.
