We use tools such as especially hand-crafted candles to remove excess ear wax and apply therapeutic herbal agents. The spiral of the cone causes the smoke to be drawn downward into the ear canal.
This causes the ear canal to warm and loosens wax and other debris. The candle flame and the cone geometry then create a gentle vacuum that draws out this debris and often helps to relieve congestion. As the candle burns, you may hear some crackling and hissing. This is the normal sound of the candle at work.
Ear candling is soothing and relaxing, and you may experience a clearing of the sinuses, Eustachian tubes and nasal passages. Ear candling is ideal if you:
-Have chronic wax buildup
-Work outdoors or in dusty environments
-Participate in water activities
-Suffer earaches, sinus infections or allergies
-Wish to apply herbal therapies as a health benefit
