Ear Candling Treatment
Ear Candling may be a relaxing therapy whereby candles are placed within the ear. the warmth of the flame causes a mild suction, which many of us find beneficial. The open channel of the filter makes the ear candle even simpler . The rounded end of the filter felt seals off the sear. Suitable for ears of all sizes. Bio sun ear candles are made by hand employing a traditional recipe and therefore the finest regularly tested ingredients. Without compromise, only premium quality pesticide-free untreated cotton is employed along side pure beeswax, honey extract, and traditional herbs like sage, St Johns Wort, chamomile and pure essential oils.
Does Ear Candling Work?
According to advocates of ear candling, the hollow cones create a low-level vacuum that softens and draws earwax and impurities out of the ear and into the hollow candles.
After the procedure, a dark, waxy substance is usually left within the hollow candle stub. Proponents claim that the waxy substance is earwax and other debris, however, critics of ear candling contend that the substance that is still after ear candling may be a byproduct of the candles.
A study published within the journal Laryngoscope tested the idea and located ear candles didn’t produce a vacuum or negative pressure which the waxy remains consisted of drugs found in candle wax but not in ear wax.
Safety and Side Effects
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), using lit candles in close proximity to an individual’s face is dangerous and carries “a high risk of causing potentially severe skin/hair burns and tympanic cavity damage”, even once they are used consistent with the manufacturer’s directions.
Serious potential risks involved in ear candling include:
- Burns and damage to the ear, skin, and hair from the recent wax
- Obstruction or blockage of the auditory meatus thanks to wax dripping into the ear
- Wax deposits within the ear
- Perforated eardrum
- Hearing loss
- Otitis externa
- The most frequently reported adverse effect of ear candling may be a burn, either from the candlelight or from the recent wax.
