What is Ear Candling? An ear candle is a long thin hollow cone shaped instrument made of cotton muslin that has been dipped and coated with wax. The practice has been around for centuries with origins in ancient China, Egypt, and India. Ear Candles are used to relax, melt away stress and daily frustrations. The way they work is once the top of the candle is burning, warm air and rhythmic sounds begin moving down the candle and into the ear creating a tranquil and soothing experience. Relax, unwind and enjoy the calming effects of Wally’s Natural Ear Candles.
