Ear candling is an old home remedy said to clear out excess ear wax and debris in your ear. Home remedy reports have stated that ear candling can help increase hearing ability, clear sinuses and rid the ear of harmful bacteria.
How to: Lay on your side with a pillow under your head. Have the person performing the ear candling lay a dishtowel over your hair and around your shoulder.
Then take a paper plate and place a small hole in it. Place the plate with the hole over your ear. Put the tapered end of the candle into the hole in the plate and into the ear canal. Be sure that the candle is in a vertical position.
Light the large end of the candle with a lighter.
Let the candle burn until it has reached about 2 inches from your ear. Do not let it burn any shorter, so that you will prevent yourself from getting burned. Have the person performing the ear candling extinguish the candle by putting it into a bowl of water. Do not blow it out.
Repeat Steps 1 through 5 for the other ear.
