TSS Says: I discovered ear candles in 2004 when an assistant in a health shop recommended them as I had an awful cold and was bunged up. She said it would help clear my sinus and aid a speedier recovery or at least ease the discomfort. I was not prepared for for the shock of seeing the contents of my ear (ear wax) which was in the end of the candle which I unfolded to asses at the end of the treatment as advised. I became a regular user after that and use them on the whole family. It does away with the need for tedious and uncomfortable ear drops or other ear wax removal methods. Is much easier to use on kids and is perfect for a pre flight/holiday cleanse. I no longer need to pop my ears taking off or landing as the pressure doesn’t get trapped and I also don’t tend to get ear infections, again because dirty pool water cant get trapped behind a wax clogged eardrum.
Do seek medical advise if you have ( or anyone you are intending to use them on has) a perforated eardrum or suffers with ear infections. I think it can help to clear ear infections personally but its always wise to check with a GP first. You can pay £25-£30 for these treatments in a beauty salon so this is a great money saver DIY kit.
The original ear candle was invented by the Hopi Tribe USA and their version of “Hopi Candle” is available but costs around a 3rd more than our supply which work as effectively
Quite simply, get a cup of water and a mirror (if you are doing the treatment yourself) Lie down on your side after lighting the candle on the opposite end of the one with a line 1\4 of the way up. Its best to do this somewhere away from inflammable materials such as bedding. Pop the candle into your ear gently but so you can feel its in and then let it burn down to the line. Keep an eye on it in your mirror. Once its burnt down to the line (don’t let it burn any lower) then quickly pop it into the water to extinguish the flame. Then you can unroll it to reveal all that has been drawn up via the chimney effect.

What are Ear Candles?
Allegedly, ear candles were used in China, Egypt, Tibet, by the Hopi Indians in America, and even in Atlantis!
Ear-candling entails placing a hollow candle into the ear of the patient and lighting the far end of the candle, which then burns slowly over about 15 minutes. This generates mild suction and is supposed to stimulate energy points. Thereafter, the candle is extinguished and the content of the near end of the candle is usually displayed for inspection. Many therapists inform their patients that the remnant left behind at the end of treatment is ear wax, suggesting that it has been drawn out of the ear through the ‘chimney effect’ produced by the burning candle.
Ear-candling is used for the removal of ear wax and for the treatment of hay fever, headaches, sinusitis, rhinitis, colds, influenza and tinnitus. It is even claimed candling can lead to ‘sharpening of mental functioning, vision, hearing, smell, taste and colour sensation’.
At the very least, it removes ear wax easily without the need for drops or syringing.
