What is it? Ear candling is a safe, gentle, natural way to remove excess wax and debris from inside the ears. Long tapered candles are inserted gently into the ears, and then lit. The candle creates a slight vacuum effect, oxidizing, vaporizing, and drawing softened wax and debris from the ears. The warmth and smoke assists the body’s natural process to excrete impacted earwax during the day after candling is performed.
