Wally's Natural Beeswax Ear Candles are without oils, fragrances or additives. Completely all natural & sweet smelling while burning smoother, cleaner and longer than our paraffin candles. A traditional practice used for more than 2000 years, ear candling (also called ear coning) consists of placing the tapered end of a hollow cylinder coated with wax into the opening of the ear canal and lighting the opposite end on fire. Smoke and warmth will then freely enter the ear canal and begin softening hardened and impacted earwax.
Modern ear candling uses disposable hollow candles made from strips of unbleached cotton or linen dipped in paraffin or beeswax. Some candles are made with herbs or essential oils mixed into the wax, similar to the way ancients peoples placed medicinal plants and herbs in their ear candles for the beneficial effects of the smoke.
Though many ear candlers believe the candle actually draws out ear wax with the suction of fire, this is not true. The smoke and warmth help soften and break-up your hardened ear wax allowing your body to excrete it naturally.
Any wax deposits you may find inside the candle consist entirely of beeswax or paraffin wax used in production of the ear candle. It is not ear wax
First, cover the head, hair, shoulders, and upper torso with a damp towel to protect the patient from flame or any ashes that may fall during the process. The patient should sit upright. Gently rub with a circular motion just below the patient's ear behind the jaw bone, the temples and scalp for at least 30 seconds to open up circulation in the ear and facial areas. The tapered end of the ear candle is seated gently, but firmly enough to create a seal to the outer ear canal. The opposite end is then lit on fire. The candle will burn slowly and the patient will experience an interesting crackling sound while smoke and warmth from the candle enter the outer ear. Scissors should be used to cut each inch of ash into a pie tin or bowl of water. An aluminum pie pan with a hole punched in it may be used as a shield if desired. Keep the candle in the ear until it burns to four inches in length, then remove and extinguish it in a bowl of water.
Use extreme care when working with fire
