This is a hollow candle made of muslin cloth soaked in paraffin or bees wax. The ear candle is to be insert to a plate with a hole. The plate has double purpose, to cover the face in case of falling candle debris and to balance the candle through therapy.
The treatment follows a vacuum mechanism. The heat and the hollow from the ear candle helps in the generation of the vacuum. It gradually sucks out the earwax, toxin, and pressure from the ears and sinuses. It is not painful nor uncomfortable.
This simple and time proven treatment can be very effective in ear wax removal, for sinus pressure, tinnitus, TMJ syndorme etc. A lot of people confirm and attest the value of ear candling in cleansing the ear canals and sinus passages which make them comfortable.
In 2006 or 2007, Ear candling has become popular. Because of media and different advertisements, many people are convinced and attracted to use it. Most of them attest of its beneficial effect in human body. Actually, many are impressed with the holistic results after the treatment. However, known medical research journals have shown that the practise is both ineffective and dangerous and may damage ear anatomy. Because of this , FDA disproves its practice, but inspite of negative research results, no account of any ear injuries has been reported caused by ear candling.
