Ear Candling FAQs
How far does the candle go into my ear?
The candle sits comfortably in the outer ear, about as deep as you can fit your pinkie finger into your ear.
How do I know if I need ear candling?
Nearly everyone can benefit from ear candling. Because of the intricacy of the ear, debris can accumulate. This debris can create an environment which can lead to hearing issues as well as yeast and was build up. Regular ear candling can help improve clarity, hearing, relieve tension and pressure in the ear.

What risks are associated with ear candling?
First, you should definitely receive ear candling from a trained professional. Although candles are available to use at home, it is not recommended. Since there is a lit flame to burn the candle, the practitioner uses a fire resistant tray that the candle is inserted into. The client’s hair and side of face is covered with fire resistant towels. Water and wet towels are nearby as well. Most risks are if a client opts for ear candling too soon after surgery or after a ruptured ear drum. You should be sure any ear condition is cleared up. While ear candling can be good for getting rid of a sinus infection, if you have an infection in the bone of the ear, you should wait to book this procedure until it clears up. As with any procedure, you must make the best decision for the good of your health in receiving any alternate therapy.
