Ear Candling 101

Pin It Now!

Last week I posted this picture {in a weekend recap photo collage}, snapped by the Mr. while I was ear candling. Ear candling is something I have done for most of my childhood and into my adult life. I introduced the Mr. to it when we first started dating 8 years ago and since then we've done it a handful of times. 

The benefits we see to ear candling are that it is a safe, homeopathic way to clean wax out of the ear. We use a hollow, cone like tube made of fabric, coated in beeswax.We purchased these specific ones at a local health foods store for $3 a piece. The end that is lit uses heat which acts like a vacuum to siphon the softened wax out of the ear. It's like spring cleaning...for the ear.

 Here is the fun part. 
Or the gross part. 
Whichever way you wish to see it. 
Cutting the candle open to see how much fungus ear wax is inside.

Have you ever ear candled? I'd love to hear about it!

Ear candling is somewhat of a controversial topic. The opinions on this blog are my own and not a professional or medical opinion. Please do your own research to determine whether or not ear candling is right for you.
