Ear candling is a traditional therapy used by the ancient Greeks and popularized by the Hopi Indian tribe of the American South-West.  

The process involves placing the lit candle comfortably at the opening of the ear canal. The resulting gentle suction draws excess ear wax and impurities into the candle.

Ear candling can benefit sinusitis, glue ear, hay fever, rhinitis, excessive ear wax, colds, diminished hearing (due to excess ear wax), tension headaches, and stress.
