Ear candling also known as ear coning, is a form of alternative therapy in which the coned end of a hollow ear candle is placed in a patient's ear while the other end of the candle is lit. The candle flames create heat as well as a partial vacuum, which give therapeutic properties that keep the ear drum clean and release stress by decreasing pressure inside the cranial cavity. Ear candling has also been touted as a treatment for sinus infections and as a way to improve hearing.
Benefits of Ear Candling
As well as softening ear wax and releasing pressure in the cranial cavity, the benefits of ear candling include relieving the symptoms of;
- sinus problems
- ear ache
- glue ear
- swimmers ear
- some chronic headaches
- ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- hearing difficulties
- irritations in the ear
- sore throat
Ear candling will also help to relieve pressure in the ears after flying, deep sea diving or whenever an imbalance of pressure has occurred. They also help to relax and calm, relieving symptoms of stress and anxiety.
Ear Candling Did NOT Originate from North American Indians
Many people believe that ear candles originate from the Hopi Tribe of the North American Indians due to the picture to the left, that has been misinterpreted as a father passing ear candles onto his son. Regrettably, this is not the case. The picture that is normally misrepresented by ear candling companies and their users is actually a picture of a father passing down prayer sticks to his son before he embarks on his journey to seek out the snake clan people, who possessed the much sought after power to make rain.
The true origins of ear candling lies from our very own elders. For many years now, people have been sharing their stories about how their grandmother or aunt or mother candled them as a child. These stories date back three or four generations. Most of the stories that are shared with us are from families from Italy, Poland, Central America and South America. Not Native American Indians.

After reviewing the AER’s worldwide and speaking with other ear candle companies, it became apparent to the developer Dr Harmony that there could be a safety issue if an ear candle did not have a safety tip. This safety tip provides an extra layer of protection, unlike any other Ear candle.
Why do you not see as much debris with our ear candles?
Dr. Harmony understands and knows that everyone is fascinated with the debris inside of the ear candle and that they expect to see a lot of debris. However the safety tip ensures that safety comes first. The safety tip provides a stronger combustion rate, meaning that most of the debris on the inside of the candle now will burn off rather than being deposited to inside of the ear candle. It is suggested that the end user to focus on the way their bodies respond to this treatment and not to what they see.
