Ear candling, also known as ear coning, has been used in the past for healing and spiritual purification.
Today it is used to address mild illnesses of the respiratory system, sinuses and ears by lighting up one end of a hollow candle with a flame and placing the other end in the ear canal. The flame creates a gentle vacuum, drawing wax and debris out of the ear canal which appears as a dark yellow residue. The heat from the flame also creates a stimulating, soothing, and warming effect to the tissues in and around the ear that results in a stimulation of lymphatic drainage in the entire head and neck region. It is a natural, pain free way to remove wax, pressure and congestion from the ears.
Painless and relaxing, this procedure aids in detoxifying the sinuses and lymph glands. Ear candling also assists in reducing the frequency of headaches, allergies, sinus and ear infections.
For general maintenance, ear candling is beneficial to do 2-3 times per year. For chronic problems, it can be done more often but not more than once a week.
Ear candling is beneficial for:
- ear aches
- sinus congestion
- sore throats
- “swimmer’s ear” and itching
- clearing excess wax from the ears
Benefits of ear candling:
- can improve hearing ability
- can improve sense of balance
- help prevent chronic ear infections
- can reduce ear pressure during air travel
