Auriculotherapy aka Ear Candling*

An ancient remedy

Auriculotherapy or Ear Candling, also called Ear Coning, is a folk medicine practice intended to reduce the "toxins" from within a person's ear by means of a hollow candle placed in the ear. It involves placing one end of a hollow candle in the outer ear canal and lighting the other end. Ear Candling is believed to be effective at creating a minor vacuum and removing impurities from the ear. Some critics claim their use has resulted in injuries, which of course can be said about the use of just about any home remedies that are used beyond the application of common sense.

Ear Candling is used primarily for cleaning the ears, and to promote a healthy atmosphere in the ears, sinus cavities, and throat. There are, however, several other benefits. The process can help regulate pressure, assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, catarrh, migraines, some forms of hearing loss, and the restoration of equilibrium.

Some manufacturers of Ear Candles often refer to them as Hopi Ear Candles, referring to the Hopi Native American nation. There is, however, little objective evidence that Ear Candling is in fact an established treatment within Hopi folk medicine. Allegedly, this technique was also used by the ancient Atlanteans, Egyptians, Mayans, and Tibetans to cleanse the spiritual and physical body.


PROCEDURE: One end of a cylinder or cone of waxed cloth is placed into the subject's ear, and the other end lighted. Usually the subject is lying on one side with the treated ear uppermost and the candle vertical, perhaps stuck through a paper plate or aluminum pie tin to protect against any hot wax or ash falling down the side. A typical Ear Candling session can last up to 45 minutes, during which time a series of 1 or 2 ear candles may be burned for each ear. The experience has been described as being rather exotic, but pleasant and relaxing. One may hear some crackling and popping, or feel some heat during the Ear Candling session.

BENEFITS: The hot air is claimed to melt earwax and create a vacuum that pulls out toxins from the inner ear and the sinuses. At the end of the treatment the subject can be shown the accumulated ash and melted wax inside the candle, which are presented as impurities and even fungus, drawn out of the ear. Smoke circulating in the ear is sometimes also claimed to have physically beneficial or even mind-clearing effects.

WARNING: Ear Candling should NOT be done to people with medical ear tubes, perforated ear drums, or artificial ear drums. Read Me First.

Critics charge that the claims for Ear Candling are vague and even contradictory, and that no scientific studies have been done to document the health benefits of Ear Candling.

Proponents claim significant improvement in their hearing, inner ear pain relief and a reduction in tinnitus symptoms after several Ear Candling sessions. It is curious why studies have not been conducted to evaluate the practice scientifically, since it has been used for hundreds of years. It is suspected by many that some Ear Candle critics represent special vested interests with obvious financial motives.

The Ear Candle is an ancient remedy that is innovative and holistic. It has been passed down generation to generation. No one knows precisely where Ear Candles originated. People from all over the world, the ancient Aztecs, Mayans, Egyptians, Chinese, etc., have used Ear Candles.


Ear Candles are a home health care remedy. Use common sense. Read all instructions and warnings herein. If you do not feel comfortable using Ear Candles - DO NOT use them. If you do not feel secure in using fire around yourself and others - DO NOT use Ear Candles. If you do not know how to use Ear Candles - get assistance from someone who does. See video.


Never use Ear Candles without a second person who is able to supervise and/or assist you.

Use all cautions that an open fire requires while using an open flame.

Your will need a glass of water, paper plate, and matches.

Cut a cross in the center of the paper plate big enough to put a Candle in it snugly.

The small end is pressed through the cut in the center of the plate, and sticking through far enough to be placed gently into the outer canal of the ear.

Lay on your side, pull all the hair away from the ear, light the Ear Candle and place the small end of the Ear Candle in your ear and hold gently between your fingers.

Be sure you do not squeeze the Ear Candle.

Make sure the small end is well seated in the ear making a good seal.

Slant the cone slightly, without breaking the seal.

If you would like to massage the person you are Ear Candling, massage along the brow, forehead, cheek bone, jaw bone, the side of the neck and the back of the neck always toward the ear. Do not move the head around. This should be a gentle and relaxing experience.

Be attentive to the person that is being candled.

When it burns down 7" take the Candle out of the ear and extinguish the flame in a cup of water or a wet cloth.

Clean the outside of the ear with your Q-tip, and if you like, place a couple of drops of Mullein, Garlic or Olive Oil in the ear.

Do NOT put the Q-tip into the ear.


If you do not feel comfortable using Ear Candles - DON'T! If you have any doubts about your own health, and your ability to assist your own healing process - please contact a doctor of your choice.

Do NOT use Ear Candles under any of the following conditions.

Cysts in the Ear

Perforated Ear Drums

Tumor of the Ear

You are currently under the supervision of a medical doctor for ear problems

You are allergic to bee stings or honey

Use you own judgment as to what feels normal and how often to use them. A general suggestion is to use them as needed. Many people use at least three candles per ear, per session. STOP if your ears feel uncomfortable.

Does Ear Candling hurt?
No, it should never hurt. It is a very gentle, warm and soothing process. If pain occurs, STOP!

How many Ear Candles should I use?
Many users have the best results with 3 Ear Candles per ear.

How often should I use Ear Candles?
It is generally left to one's intuition as to when to use Ear Candles.

Should I use oils?
Once again, one should never put anything in one's ear without your doctor's approval. If oil is used, massage the oil only in the outer opening of your ear canal. Do not drop oil into the ear.

What is the powdery residue inside the Ear Candle?
The powder is a chemical reaction between the cloth and wax. This occurs in every single Ear Candle. It is not what is in the Ear Candle that is important. It is how do you feel? Are you more clear? Do you feel more balanced? Open? Is your child's ear infection gone the next day? Are your sniffles dissipated? If you have vertigo, do you feel more balanced? Ear Candles balance the ear, nose and throat energies.

WARNING: Do not use Ear Candles made with inferior paraffin or thick beeswax.

Due to the power and corrupting influence of Big Pharma, the teaching
of nutritional science and the use of vitamin and herbal supplements is
not taught to any significant extent in our medical schools. The obvious
reason is that teaching this science reduces the use of prescription drugs.
