Ear candling is the process of using a cone shaped, hollow tube often made of bee’s wax to siphon out earwax from the ear. One end of the candle is heated, creating a sort of suction, drawing out toxins and ear wax. This has been proven false, and dangerous however. The residue left in the candle after ear candling is actually simply residue from the candle itself, and nothing from the ear. I wouldn’t recommend this process to anyone, no matter what your friendly neighborhood hippy says.
