How Ear Candles Work

The ear canal is gently filled with warm air, softening the earwax. The propoli vapours heal and protect the ear. The heat also enhances blood flow within the ear canal, resulting in a feeling of well-being and of general relaxation.

The warm rising air creates a vacuum (chimney effect) at the base of the candle. This helps draw out waste deposits and moisture from the ear canal.


For safety reasons we recommend you do not use ear candles alone. It is best done by a second person. This will also help you enjoy a relaxing experience. Do not use ear candles if you suffer from acute or chronic diseases. Please consult an appropriate therapist if you are at all unsure about an ear candling treatment. Do not candle your ears if you have a perforated eardrum or tympanostomy tube implants. The same applies to all kinds of inflammations of the ear or skin diseases in or around the ear.

Very occasionally allergic reactions to the ingredients are reported. This may be in the form of spontaneous itchiness and can be relieved with suitable eardrops. The application of ear candles is at your own risk and responsibility.

If you follow the instructions carefully the treatment will be simple.

Use Instructions

PREPARE - you will need a glass/bowl of water, matches, tissues.
RELAX - have the person lie on their side making sure they are comfortable.
REST - we suggest you stay lying down for 15 minutes after the treatment is complete.

  1. Push the candle through the protective disc and light the wide end of the candle.
  2. Place the small end into the ear and hold it in a vertical position. Do not force into ear.
  3. When the flame reaches the flame-breaking ring, remove and extinguish in water.


Especially recommended after showers, swimming, altitude stays, air-flights, under-water diving, to clear the ear.

When used regularly, ear candles can keep the ear wax soft. Ear candling is recommended for adults, children and people using external hearing aids.


Both ears should be treated, one after the other. When placing the lit candle into the ear you may need to pull the ear lobe a little so that the candle fits snuggly into the ear. After the treatment you may wish to unroll the remaining candle to expose any waste material that has gathered on the filter. The Egyptians have used propolis since ancient times as a natural cleanser.
