I am not sure how you can specifically unblock your ear, but in general I have some suggestions.

Use a humdifier, the cold virus thrives in dry air. You can also add some essential oils to your humidifer. I added some eucalyptus or bergamot oil to mine because it is anti bacterial/viral naturally.

You can also add the oils to your bath. Your skin will soak up the oil in my water and eventually go to your blood stream where it will naturally fight for you.

Drink A LOT of water. Water will help flush out toxins in your body.

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drink tea.

I personally prefer to sleep sitting up if I have congestions and I just keep blowing my nose. Sometimes exercise, at least walking can help your body fight the cold.

there are over the counter ear drops (something like otex)that will help unblock your ear if it is blocked due to a wax build up.
otherwise hold your nose and then try to blow out of it that usually does the trick. oh and yawning!
