Ear Candles are commonly known to be a Holistic alternative to syringing the ears, but they are believed to affect most of our whole physical and non-physical bodies. Ear candles do not require specialist administration. If the instructions supplied with your order are followed closely, using ear candles are safe and painless way to give you a sense of well-being.
How They Work
There is much debate as to the exact way that ear candling works, but thousands swear to its effectiveness.
It is a common misconception that ear candles actually draw out ear wax from the ear using a chimney action. The residue in the candle after treatment is simply the wax from the candle and not ear wax! Ear wax is encouraged to disperse naturally during and after ear candling but is NOT drawn out of the ear.
How they are used
The candles vary in length, but average at about 22cm long and have a burning time of 10-12 minutes. They are placed at the entrance to the ear, and lit at the other end. It is important that you have help in performing this for safety reasons. You should keep your eyes closed for maximum effect, and have a relaxing atmosphere in a draught-free room.
Ear Candles are not recommended for people with perforated eardrum, or tympanostomy tube implants. Also not recommended if you have skin disease in or around the ear.
