A traditional practice used for centuries, ear candling (also called coning) consists of placing a hollow cylinder coated with wax at the opening of the ear canal and lighting the other end to allow warm smoke to enter the ear.
Those who use ear candles claim the warm smoke that the candle delivers to the ear canal is soothing. They say the process is relaxing and often results in a sense of clarity after candling.
Directions: Always have an assistant perform the process. Use fresh supplies and work in a clean area. Use common sense around fire. Do not insert sharp objects or push anything into the ears. If anything falls into the ear, stop the procedure and tilt the head to let the material fall out. You can also flush clean water into the ear to rinse out any of this material. Following these suggestions will help prevent any injury or harm to the ear. Procedure: Use damp towels or Wally's Head & Shoulder Cover to cover the hair, face and clothing. The person should sit up during the process. Use an aluminum pie pan with hole for candle, angling the candle about 10 degrees upward. Light candle, and let smoke and warmth soothe the ear. As candle burns, cut off the ash into a bowl of water. During the procedure, you may massage the face in the areas of the sinuses (around the cheek, nose and eye) and along the side of the person's neck. When candle burns to about 4 in length, carefully remove it from the ear and extinguish the candle in the bowl of water.
