Does it hurt?
Ear candling is a painless, harmless and totally relaxing experience. If it weren’t for the crackling and hissing sounds that occur from the burning of the waste deposits, you would never know anything was happening to your ear.
How much ear wax is healthy amount?
Ear wax is useful to our bodies as it repels water and prevents your ear from getting infected. However, while most of it usually dries up and is gradually expelled from the ear, it sometimes accumulates.
Why is Propolis added to your ear candles?In our products, Propolis is added to the blend of beeswax in the candle as its properties are able to bind with the effectiveness of the candling process to provide even better results. But don’t worry – it’s completely safe! In fact, the Egyptians have been using Propolis as a natural cleanser since ancient times.
What does Propolis do inside the ear? When the ear candle is lit, the vapours from the Propolis fill your ear canal and help to clean out the accumulated wax.
USEFUL ADVICE – Both ears should be treated, one after the other.
Some top tips to keep in mind for a smooth experience…
Have a glass of water nearby so you can easily and safely put out the candle when you are finished the treatment.
When you are placing the lit candle into your ear, pull your ear lobe slightly so that the candle is able to fit comfortable into the canal.
After the treatment you may wish to unroll the remaining candle to expose any waste material that has gathered on the filter.
The ancient history of ear cones…
Back when ancient cultures began using this method of cleaning their ears, it was described merely as ‘coning.’ They used pottery clay to create cone shaped instruments with a double helix carved on the inside, which created a downward spiral of energy flow when combined with the heated air and smoke. This helix would also carry the burning herbs down into the ear canal. The smoke and heat then cleaned the canal by pulling all wax and other debris out as the air was burned out the canal.
This traditional method was used throughout Egypt, India, Tibet and China, and throughout the Mayan, American Indian and Aztec cultures. Historical study dates this remedy back to Lemuria and Atlantic, meaning that they have been used all around the world to much success for hundreds of years. Many of these cultures considered ear coning a spiritual practice of sorts, as they believed it cleared the mind and the senses as well as the canals themselves. The belief was that it cleared the mind and body, allowing them to meditate and open up your sensitivity as best as possible. Many cultures still use ear coning today, with materials varying from rolled up newspaper soaked in wax to pottery cones.
Nowadays, due to health regulations, disposable candles are best used for ear coning. The candles are made from strips of unbleached cotton or linen dipped in Paraffin, beeswax and herbs. The spiral roll that is built into the candles provides the same effect as the ones used in ancient times. In many cultures across the world, including Germany where ear candling is taught as a remedy, this method is the remedy of choice for people suffering with fungus growth, candida, ear aches, ear infections and similar issues.
