Ear Candling and Why You Need It

Ear Candling and Why You Need It

The History of Ear Candling

Ear candling has a long history. We are still not able to pinpoint where it originated from and we found that this treatment has been used around the world. This practice is dated back to 2,500 B.C. Evidence showed that people used and were familiar with the practice of ear candling. If the people from the past have the knowledge and procedure on how to provide ear candling to people, this must mean that it has its own benefits!

This treatment was used in China, India, Tibet, Egypt, South American civilizations which include Mayan and Aztec and American Indian cultures. History scrolls and findings also found that the people of the East used this as a method to remove blockages from the ear canal, without the use of liquid solutions or probes. This treatment was used to cleanse the ear canal, but it is also believed to be a spiritual practice for clearing the mind and senses. 

Ear candling is now making its comeback into the world of wellness. Plenty of spas and holistic healing centers are providing this service. It is a non-invasive procedure and it’s considered more effective and safer than ear syringing. 

The Procedure

  1. The person that is about to receive this treatment will lie on either left or right of his/her side.
  2. A hollow candle made from a fabric tube soaked in beeswax will be placed in the external auditory canal. 
  3. The candle is then lit and burned for about 15 minutes.
  4. If you experience any discomfort throughout your session, you can request to stop the procedure at any point.
  5. Repeat step 2 on the other side.
  6. Brown waxy substance which is the mixture of ear wax, debris, and bacteria, is left in the candle stub.
