How Ear Candling works

Ear Candling

It works on many levels of the body; it’s a very soothing and nurturing treatment. The gentle burning of the beeswax and fine linen creates warmth; thus gently stimulating vasodilation of the blood vessel in the ear canal.  The released essential oils and goodness in the beeswax mix into the smoke of the candles. Then carried on the smoke down the candle into the ear.  Here in the ear canal the is lined with a mucous membrane, making it easy for the absorption of the essential oils and beeswax properties into the blood.  The noise and movement of the flame all play a part in this treatment.

The Treatment starts with you laid on your left or right side. With your best ear upwards. I will make you comfortable using pillows to support you and blankets to keep you warm.

This is a full treatment allow an hour to hour and half. The candles take between 10 – 20 minutes each to burn. The rest of the time consists of the facial lymphatic drainage massage, consultation time, getting ready and after treatment care.

Before I light the candle, I will let you feel what it will feel like once placed in your ear. I will talk you through what you might hear and feel. We’re all different which means I can not tell young exactly what your experience will be.

Next, once the candles lit, I will place it just inside your ear canal, Keeping you safe, supporting it all the time it’s there. When burnt down to its limit I will remove it and extinguish it in water. Around the candle there’s a special card protecting you from the candle whilst it burns. Following this your ears then massaged and lymphatic drainage stimulated.

I will then assist you to turn over, rearrange the pillows and blankets, then repeat the process.

Finally, I will massage the face using lymphatic drainage techniques.


Post Treatment

  • Time to have a look at the inside of the candle, the residue is not human wax. There’s not enough vacuum created by the candle to pull the wax out of your ear. It softens ear wax making it easier for the hairs to push it out or removal at GP’s.
  • Remember to drink after the treatment you will be detoxing and will need to stay hydrated. we should drink at least 3 litres of fluid per day.
