Another practice used across the ancient world is ear candling. Historical records reveal use in most of Asia and ancient Egypt since 3,000 B.C. The ear canal is gently filled with smoke that travels down the lit candle. The smoke softens and loosens wax allowing it to naturally and easily come out.
The candles are made from bees wax and the procedure is very safe. Clearing the auricle canal with ear candles allows for better sinus drainage and can be used to alleviate tinnitus and vertigo as well as to draw out chronic bacterial infections.
