What is Ear Candling?
Ear candling, also called ear coning or thermal-auricular therapy, is a pseudoscientific alternative medicine practice claiming to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal.
What should you expect from this ear candling?
The far end of the candle is lit and the heat allegedly produces suction that is supposed to draw out the ear wax, debris, and bacteria from inside the ear canal. At the end of ear candling, what’s left are the candle stub and a dark substance thought to be ear wax.
How often should you do ear candling?
Adults generally take no more than 2 candles per ear so the average session lasts about 1 ½ hour. In the case where there is excessive debris, the practitioner may elect to use a 3rd candle.
