First I have to admit, I’m a Q-tipper. That’s right I know they say don’t stick things in your ears but I do. At least 3 times a week I shove that cottony white stick right in my ear canal and just spin it around. It feels so good I could just move my leg up and down like a dog getting its belly scratched… ok that may have been a little TMI but well I do tend to overshare! While on vacation in California last summer I witnessed this!
You might be asking what’s an ear candle? Ear Candles are a therapeutic ancient practice that has been used for centuries in many cultures.Ear Candling involves placing a hollow cylinder tube with a narrow end at the opening of the ear. They are made with strips of cloth or muslin coated with wax and the opposite end is lit. This produces spiraling smoke and warmth which creates a vacuum to pull the wax out. It is very comfortable and you really don’t feel anything.
Sarah taught me to put it through a piece of tin foil so that if some of the ash falls off it won’t burn you or your furniture. You can also use a paper plate. Now I know you all are saying really how can this work well I’m about to show you. If you are grossed out by bodily you may want to look fast but here is the was it pulled out of one ear.
