Benefits: Assist a variety of minor sinus issues May relieve symptoms of migraines Helps some forms of hearing loss Has been shown to aid in vertigo Regulates ear pressure Ear candles are made of cotton or linen, wound into a cone shape, soaked in wax, and then allowed to harden. This hollow candle is placed into the external ear canal. The candle is lit at the opposite end. The theory behind ear candling, also called ear coning or thermal auricular therapy, is the heat from the flame will create suction that draws the earwax into the hollow candle. This technique is a peaceful and relaxing experience usually done in conjunction with a face, scalp or soothing trigger point massage.
