Ear Candling

Has anyone else ever done this? ....i tried it...

You lay down and put the "candle" in your ear,and light it on fire... it's about 8 inches long when you start, and takes 10-15 minutes to burn, but it is supposed to create a negative pressure, and remove ear wax, and whatever else (soap, dead skin...) that is in there...

I think it worked. It's kind of a taboo thing, i looked it up on-line, and not many people had anything good to say about it... but i like it...


This is gross, but what came out of my ears:




the q-tip is to show how much came out. the darker stuff is wax, and the white stuff soap and dead skin? I was skeptical, so i thought i would put the picture of wax and stuff... anyway, just thought this was kind of weird.

I have done this so many times! My mom used to take me when I was little, but they called it Ear Coning then! Strangely enough I LOVED it. It feels so good and you feel clean when its all done!
