Ear candling is an age-old practice for earwax removal. The narrow end of the ear candle, which is made of cotton soaked in beeswax, is inserted inside the ear while the other end is set alight. This creates a suction that essentially pulls the earwax out of one’s ear. The burning candle produces a crackling noise. The process is also seen to removes bacteria and other debris from the ear.
The process only takes several minutes on each side and poses little risk. It is best to speak to a specialized therapist in regard to any concerns or allergies you may have prior to your treatment.
