Ear Candling Also Called Ear Coning is an Alternative Therapy
An ear candle is a hollow cone made of fabric. During an ear candling session, the pointed end of the candle is placed in the ear, while the other end is lit on fire. The warm heat transfers down the cone into the ear softening the built-up earwax. Later a gentle vacuum is created by the cone and the built-up earwax is gently pulled into the cone. This process may help to eliminate excess earwax, improve hearing, and aid conditions such as sinus infections and colds. An overall feeling of well-being may be experienced.
