Ear Candling

Ear Candling is a soothing and relaxing ancient technique used for cleansing and detoxifying the ears.

Ear Candling is a gentle, relaxing, non-invasive method of cleansing the ear canal. This traditional therapy uses a hollow “candle”— crafted with beeswax/paraffin and therapeutic oils—to soften any impurities and relieve pressure from the head and sinuses.

Quite different from conventional wax candles, an Ear Candle is actually a cotton tube, formed with beeswax or paraffin to hold a cone-like shape. The candles can be made with different therapeutic oils and ingredients to aid in the treatment process. Ear Candling works like a chimney, drawing impurities from the ear.

Ear Candling can benefit conditions that affect the head and ears and is also known for aiding in relaxation, as it includes massage therapy and calming techniques.

How does it work?

After lighting the Ear Candle, a steady stream of smoke flows into the ear. This releases healing herbs and oils to soften any impurities residing in the ear, creating a soothing, light sensation in the sinuses and head. The rising air is said to gently massage the eardrum while pressure in the sinus cavities and ears is equalized.

Ear Candling

What to Expect During a Session

During your session you will lie on one side and have the candle carefully inserted into your ear. Most people feel a warming sensation from the candle, which relaxes the ear canal and softens the debris within the ear. If the heat becomes uncomfortable, inform your practitioner and they will stop the session. You may hear crackling and popping as the wax/fluid/debris are loosening. Relax as you enjoy a neck and face massage that is part of your session.

Who Should Not Receive Ear Candling?

If you have a perforated eardrum or grommets, mastoid cavity, cleft palate, foreign object inside the ear canal, or an ear infection that has been within the last 6 weeks—Ear Candling is contraindicated and not advised.
