Why aren't there olive oil drops on the shelf for the ears?

People have been using ordinary olive oil as eardrops for ages, and it is not considered to be a drug, so cheap.

Packaging and selling it as a drug would involve too much costs to have it researched first, then registered, packaged, with a not to use after date, a lot of bureaucracy, all costing a lot of money, etc. etc. making the olive oil ear drops on the shelf unbearably expensive.
