ear candling


Junior Member
Has anyone ever tried ear candling or coning? I would like to try it out but after doing some research online I am not so sure. Some websites stated that it does nothing at all and can cause damage while others boasted the health benefits.

I've heard

I've heard it isn't effective, and as you said, could be dangerous. I understand that it doesn't do anything, and the melted wax you see is actually from the candle. I myself have used the wax-removal drops and syringe they sell at most stores.

I've used it quite successfully. I know that it wasn't just wax from the candle coming from my ears. I had gone to my allergy specialist for my testing, and he told me that my right ear had a LOT of wax that was pressing on the eardrum. He told me to remove it, but didn't explain how.

I had both ears done, but the right was done FIVE times. I did nothing else. When I went back for my follow up the following week, he was pleased with the wax removal from my ear.
