Guide to Ear Candling

Ear problems are frustrating and quite painful at times. Ear candling is a holistic treatment for many ear ailments. You can find them at almost any natural remedy store. Large stores, such as Wal-Mart, even sell ear candle kits now! Their popularity is growing rapidly.

How Does Ear Candling Work?

Most ear candles are 10 inches long, made of rolled beeswax or paraffin. The person being candled lays down in a comfortable position, and the helper puts the tapered end of the candle comfortably against the ear canal.

The process is supposed to create a suction and melt the ear wax, sucking it up the tapered end of the candle. Ear candling can take between 30 to 45 minutes. While the process is debated, ear candling is non-invasive and considered relaxing.
