Ear coning is a technique that safely removes debris, such as flaky skin, bacteria, and parasites from the ear canal. Candling requires a cone shaped, hollow candle to be placed into the ear canal, often with the aid of a speculum and special adapter to ensure safety. The candle is ignited, and as it burns it creates an upward, spiralling vacuum that draws the impurities from the ear canal. Many people have also noticed clearing beyond the outer ear, in the sinuses, and lymphatic vessels of the neck. Safety is usually enhanced by the use of flame-retardant materials, gauze barriers, and/or aluminum plate protectors. Some practitioners may incorporate other modalities including acupressure, aromatherapy, and massage to enhance the benefits of ear coning.

What Are The Ear Cones Made Of?

The ear cones used are lovingly hand made using unbleached cotton, 100% Ontario beeswax and botanically certified oils of geranium, lavender and eucalyptus. Beeswax cones are considered the best quality due to their high melting temperatures. These candles hold an unusually high energy vibration which helps assist the body in the healing process.
