What are the benefits of ear candling?
Ear candling is a relaxing and soothing experience. It is a process whereby heated air is channeled into the outer ear canal for the primary purpose of helping to soften old, hardened and impacted ear wax. During the process small particles of ear wax and debris may be drawn up in to the candle, however, the main portion of the softened wax is normally excreted naturally by the ear within the next few days.

Are there people who should not be candled?
Anyone who has had recent ear or sinus surgery, tubes, bleeding or draining of fluids from the ear, or an ear drum perforation should not ear candle. Any current serious ear or sinus problem should always be brought to the attention of an ear, nose and throat doctor.

Does it take more than one person to perform the procedure?
Yes! Never attempt ear candling by yourself. Another person must watch over the process and cut the ash from the burning candle as needed. An ear candler can easily monitor the progress and avoid problems with ash or fire.

Is the procedure uncomfortable?
Ear candling is a soothing, relaxing process. An interesting "crackling" sound can be heard as the candle burns. How long does an ear candling session take? When an experienced ear candler performs the procedure using 2 ear candles per ear, the session may last an hour or more. Each candle can take 8 to 12 minutes to burn down to 4" in length, where it is then removed and extinguished. A facial massage and ear oil application will be included to enhance and promote the procedure.

How many ear candles can be used per session?
For adults, 1 to 4 ear candles per ear are recommended for a single session.

How often can a person be candled?
Everyone is different, and so are their ears. Some people ear candle weekly, some monthly, others ear candle yearly and many candle with the change of each season. It is up to the individual person and the amount of wax that builds up in the ear that normally determines how often the process should be done.

What should one do right after ear candling?
The ears may become sensitive after ear candling. It is recommended that a drop of Mineral Oil be put on a cotton swab and gently swabbed around the outer ear canal. Refrain from immersing your head and ears in water immediately after the ear candling procedure.

At what age can ear candling be administered?
I do not recommend this process for children under the age of 10. The procedure involves fire, therefore extreme caution should be taken should you choose to ear candle a small child. Ear candling is not harmful to children, but fire is.
