History of Ear Candling / Coning

It is a comfortable technique that has been around for centuries. It dates back as far as biblical times when hollow weeds from swamp areas were used. It's an ancient healing process used by virtually every healing tradition. It has been passed down for many generations by the ancient Egyptians, the Chinese Traditional Medicine, Native Americans and European cultures but it is almost unknown today. The process has come into practice again and is being used by a wide section of people. Ear Candling was even considered a spiritual practice
that also cleared the mind and senses.

How it Works

Ear candles are strips of cotton muslin dipped into a mixture of wax and herbs with natural antibiotic, decongestant activity like sage, cedar, spearmint, Echinacea, goldenseal, and rosemary, then formed into a tapered cone. In the coning process, the narrow end of the candle is gently placed at the ear canal, while the opposite end is lit. The spiral design of the cone creates a vacuum which draws the smoothing smoke into the ear canal. The smoke goes through the Eustachian tube in to the lymphatic system, then by osmosis, it draws
accumulations out into the cone. The process is soothing, and takes about an hour. Most people enjoy the process and find it very relaxing; some to point of drifting off to sleep.

What you can expect during & after your session

During the ear candling session, you will only feel the candle being carefully inserted in your ear. You may hear some cracking and popping when ear wax is being loosened. Just relax and enjoy the face and neck massage done during the Ear Candling session.

If the patron has excessive hearing loss, they may feel more heat during the Ear Candling session since their feeling senses are keener. If the heat becomes uncomfortable, at your request, the Ear Candler will stop the procedure and continue when you feel it is appropriate.

After the Ear Candling session, you may feel lightness in your head and noises may appear to be much louder to your ears. This can be relieved by putting a little ear oil on some cotton and inserting it in the ears. You will find that your hearing has improved as most likely, the blockage of wax is gone.

You may feel warmth or itching in the ears. This can be relieved by putting a drop or two of Hydrogen Peroxide in the ears for a day or two after the Candling session, then wipe them out with a cotton swab. The Hydrogen Peroxide will continue to clean the ears and the itching will stop. You may use the same procedure with Echinacea liquid or Colloidal Silver instead of Hydrogen Peroxide.
You may find your sinuses are draining or the draining has increased. This will relieve the pressure in your sinus areas and sinus headaches should decrease. The senses of taste, smell, and sight may also be increased.

Twice a year we all have our teeth cleaned to keep our mouths healthy. Why not keep our ears healthy with an Ear Candling session?

This is an OLD HOME REMEDY and no claim is made for any cure of any disease or ailment.
