What is Ear Candling?

Ear candling is a type of complementary therapy that is believed to improve health and general wellbeing. It involves inserting one end of a hollow tapered candle into the ear canal and lighting the opposite end where the wick sticks out. The candle stays in place for about 15 minutes until it burns down completely. Candles are made of a variety of materials, such as beeswax, and may also include herbs, essential oils, flower essences and other natural ingredients.

What are the Benefits of Ear Candling?

As well as addressing a variety of health issues, proponents of ear candling have claimed that it improves mental clarity and induces relaxation.
