The process involves using a specially made hollow candle which is held gently on the edge of the ear to create a vacuum in the ear, drawing out old wax, residues of past infection and fungus. Candling is said to stimulate the immune system and peripheral blood circulation.
Ear Candles are especially recommended
- After showers
- Altitude stays
- Air flights
- Under water divers

- Excessive wax build up
- Sinus irritations
- Chronic ear infections (in conjunction with other medical and/or naturopathic treatments

Precautions To Be Taken
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.. 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.
Do Ear Candles hurt?
It is a totally relaxing experience. If it weren’t for the crackling and hissing sounds, due to the burning of the waste deposits you would never know anything was happening to your ear.
Why Is Propolis Added and How Does It Act Inside The Ear?
Propolis has been added to the blend of beeswax in the ear candle and its properties combine with the beneficial effects of the ear candle making them even more effective.
Once the candle is lit, propolis vapors delicately fill the ear canal. So, thanks to their new propolis enriched formula Happy Ear Candles are even more effective to keep your ears clean.
At the BetterHealth Clinic, ear candling is done as a stand alone treatment (requires extended consultation booking) or in conjunction with other treatments. For example, sinusitis and sleep disorders and stress can be helped immensely by ear candling in conjunction with nutritional changes and desensitization or detoxification programs.
