EAR CANDLING is an ancient practice that has been around for thousands of years. The tapered end of a hollow candle is placed snugly into the ear and the other end is the lit. This lighting of the candle creates a gentle vacuum inside the hallow candle which extends into the inner ear. The mild heat circulating inside the ear softens and dislodges wax and debris and pulls it out of the ear canal and into the ear candle. Difficulty hearing can be partly caused by congestion in the ear by debris and wax.
