This treatment involves a pair of special ‘candles’, which are inserted into the ears. They are not necessarily candles, but hollow tubes made from cotton, linen or hemp. They are sprayed with beeswax and infused with honey and herbs. The candles used are certified medical products under EC guidelines, thus they’ve been thoroughly tested and are safe for regular use. The burning of these candles takes about 15 minutes for each ear, and will gradually improve your hearing. An ear candling treatment is recommended every six months to extract excess ear wax.
