What are ear candles?

Ear candles are hollow tubes made from unbleached cotton or linen and infused with beeswax. We only use Biosun candles as they have safety features and contain only natural ingredients. These ingredients include beeswax, extracts of honey, St Johns Wort, Sage, Chamomile, beta-carotene and organically grown flax.

What happens during an Ear Candling treatment?

Prior to an Ear Candling treatment, a full consultation will be conducted to ensure that Ear Candling is a suitable treatment for you. You’ll then be asked to lie on a massage couch, on your front or side, while one end of the candle is lit and the other end is placed gently in your ear. You may hear pleasant crackling, popping or feel a fizzing sensation while the candle is burning. The same process will be repeated on your other ear and the treatment is then completed with a calming and soothing lymphatic drainage facial massage.

Ear Candling treatments last around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Your first treatment may take slightly longer because of the initial consultation.

While Ear Candling is a therapy suitable for many people, it is complementary to traditional medicine and should never be used in place of care from your primary healthcare providers. Complementary therapies are not a substitute for medical care. If you have, or suspect you have a health problem then you should always consult your GP.
