Ear Candling is the holistic way of treating ear aches and other common issues related to the ear. It is best defined as the use of an ear candle which is a beeswax or paraffin wax coated cloth that is shaped into a conical cylinder about 10” to 15” in length with varying widths. Ear Candling is a therapeutic relaxation technique similar to acupressure, acupuncture, and aromatherapy.
This energy cleansing technique has been around for many thousands of years and has been found in nearly every culture since the beginning of civilization. Also referred to as ear coning, there has been archeological evidence found that this practice was even performed using glazed clay or stone pottery cones in antiquity. There is no argument to the fact that humans have been coning or candling for eons. The exact origin of candling is unknown, but there is a great deal of evidence indicating its use in many different cultures around the world.
