Ear Irrigation

Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it doesn't and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in your ear twice a day.

Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you're lying down. Source: NHS Choices

If self care treatment does not help patients may feel that they need their ears irrigated. 

Pharmacists can advise on the best course of treatment or management of ear wax build up and it is recommended that you visit them first.
