On ear candling.info, you will find answers to your questions regarding ear candles: how they work, why they work, their benefits, their origin and more.
Regrettably, the majority of ear candle manufacturers have simply repeated the same information that was told to them without researching the facts. In addition, the allopathic/FDA community has not done thorough research either so both sides of the issue have bits and pieces of the truth. This results in each side choosing those facts that are most beneficial to their greater agenda. Our goal with this site is to provide clarity about ear candles so that you can make an informed decision.
Misconceptions about ear candles
Generally people have misconceptions about what ear candles do and/or how they work. For example, one of the biggest misconceptions about ear candles is that they pull wax out of the ear. They don’t. We know that this is very disheartening because people love to open an ear candle to see all of the debris inside and imagine that this came from their ear. There are so many people who say they have better hearing after ear candling. This may certainly be true but there is no objective evidence to show that any ear wax is removed during the process. How could all of the stuff come from your ear and up into a 1 – 3 mm opening in an ear candle and be molten inside of the ear candle when the flame is so far away?

The benefits of ear candles
They are used and intended for relaxation purposes. This sounds very generic but think about it. When you have a sinus infection, cold, flu, congestion, migraine, etc, does this stress you out and prevent you from relaxing? Of course it does. If you are like most people, it makes you miserable! Ear Candles help you relax and transition to a relaxed state. This is known as the parasympathetic state. As healers know, it is in this state that the body can actually heal itself! Here is a brain study showing this transition from a sympathetic state to a parasympathetic state. To quickly understand more about the value of ear candles, read “What ear candles do“.
The origin of ear candles
Most people think that ear candles come from ancient Egypt, Mayan cultures and/or the Hopi Tribe. There is little evidence to support any of this. Irene at Coning Works did some channeling that talks about how ear candles were used by different societies. Depending on what you believe about channeling, it will have a different meaning for you. However, regarding the Hopi tribe and ear candles, there is no truth to it. It’s a myth.
One ear candle company has built its sales around the Hopi myth. This company has actually made millions on the sales of ear candles with no benefit to the Hopi Tribe. In short, this came about because a member of the Hopi tribe apparently misrepresented that a period painting showing prayer sticks were in fact ear candles. Learn more on this subject by reading a letter from Janet R. Balsom, Chief, Cultural Resources, Grand Canyon National Park.
