Ear Coning is also known as Ear Candling or Ear Cleansing with Herbs. Ear Candling was used by ancient civilizations with profound results, from India, Samaria, Tibet, and Egypt, to the Aztec and Mayan cultures.
The possible benefits include:
- Draws wax and debris out of the ear canal
- Relieves pressure from behind the eardrum
- Helps with Tinnitus
- Sharpens mental functions, vision, hearing, taste, and color perceptions
- Eases pain of earache, headache and sinus pressure
- Acts as a catalyst to clear out debris from nerve endings, allowing for clear vibrational flow to corresponding areas of the body
- Removes bacterias and viruses
- Cleans out the Eustachian tube all the way down to the throat
- Balances upper Chakras and improves Third Eye vision
Ear candling takes about 30-45 minutes, it’s non-invasive and has a narcotic effect which is very relaxing. The ear candle is lit on the wide end and heat is not felt in the ear canal.
The negative charge of the herbal smoke and spiral shape of the candle work together to stimulate the respiratory system and cleanse.
The gentle vacuum effect of fire causes debris to be drawn up the candle toward the flame.
One reason that ear candling is better than ear syringing is because it draws out the wax; whereas, syringing involves shooting water into the ears. This can lodge wax particles further inside the ear canal and cause infection if water stays lodged inside the ear.
Ear Candling Notes
- Chronic conditions may take up to three sessions to finish the cleansing process, but they need to be spaced 7-10 days apart.
- If your ears feel dry after cleansing, use a few drops of warm ear oil. This is very soothing.
- Ear candling is not a cure-all. While effective in many cases, it is best to be seen first by your doctor if you are experiencing specific medical problems.
- Ear candling is not recommended for 1) People who have a hole in their eardrum. 2) If you’ve had tubes in your eardrums (Can be checked to see if they have healed shut before candling). 3) If you have difficulty breathing where small amounts of smoke is a threat. (ex. emphysema, etc.)
- Excessive use is not wise or recommended.
