Ear Candling A Natural Solution

A natural solution for blocked ears

Do you suffer from excess ear wax, ear pressure problems, buzzing, or whistling sounds in your ears? Then you might be interested to hear about ear candling. This technique has been around for thousands of years and used by many different cultures. Modern ear candles like Otosan Ear Cones are based on these historic candles.

How to use

Ear Candles are a safe and effective device which you can use in the comfort of your own home. They can help to eliminate impurities and excess earwax from the ear. They are easy to use but you do need some help. If you’re the person with the blocked ears or problem, you lie on your side and your helper places the cone inside the ear according to the instructions on the packet. Place a towel over your shoulder and simply relax. Then they light the top of the cone and let it burn down to the metal indicator letting the cone do its work. When finished, roll over and do the other ear. It’s recommended that you do both ears even if you only have a problem in one ear.

As the ear candle burns down you may hear some sizzling sounds. The heat regenerates local blood flow, providing a feeling of well-being and general physical relaxation. It’s a very relaxing experience. Don’t use them if you have perforated ear drums, or on children under three years of age.

Problems that can be helped:

The purifying effect can help to resolve problems such as buzzing, whistling, background noises, transmission loss, and blocked ear sensation, offering relief for any of you suffering with these problems. They can also help to eliminate any residual water in the ear canal after swimming. You can use Otosan ear drops to soften wax before using the cones for optimal effect.

How often to use:

Some people use the ear cones once a month for general ear hygiene to keep the ears clean. If needed and nothing is happening, you can use the cones a couple of times a week to help resolve a problem. For stubborn ear wax you could use Otosan Ear Drops for a few days before using the cones to soften the wax. You will most likely need to use the cones a couple of times a week for a few weeks for compacted ear wax.

Nobody likes having problems with their ears so it’s nice to know that there is something simple that may help. Take a look at them and see what you think. They might work for you, no harm in trying.
