Earwax is a lubricant that moves particles out of your ear to keep it clean. Sometimes some bodies malfunction and create too much of it, and it accumulates until it becomes bothersome.

Comprised of sweat and dried skin. Ordinary olive oil using an ear dropper once a month will generally prevent any hard wax build-up.
