When lit the candle creates a light chimney effect, massaging the ear drum and ear canal through vibration and warmth; drawing out wax and impurities and clearing the ear, sinuses and nose. This helps to balance the pressure in the ears, forehead & sinuses, creating a lighter feeling in the ear and head. The healing vapour soothes irritation, stimulating the lymph glands and the immune system.
The candles are hollow tubes made from unbleached, organic cotton or linen impregnated with beeswax, honey, St John’s Wort and medicinal herbs such as sage and chamomile. They have a safety filter at the base to prevent any debris, liquid wax or candle residue from entering the ear. A soft crackling sound may be heard during the treatment as the candle burns.
