Ear wax candles

Earwax candling

What are ear candles

Ear candles are specially made candless. They are hollow, anywhere from nine to fifteen inches long, they have no wick and they are narrower at one end than the other. When the wide end is lit and the narrow end is resting gently in your ear, there is a chimney effect created that encourages a natural earwax removal through your ear canal.

Ear candling benefits

Ear candling can be performed by beauticians, alternative therapists or patients using a ear wax candling kit at home. It is used for removing ear wax, though it has also been used to relieve sinus pain, cure ear infections, help relieve tinnitus and vertigo and even strengthen the brain.
