Who doesn’t love hygiene? I mean yes, there are people who have reached the zenith of staying as dirty as possible, but maybe unaware of what harm it brings to them. The repercussions are something that they might have never dreamt of. Take for instance dirty nails; they might turn to stomach infection or diarrhea … Dirty ears follow the same path. Many major health problems erupt out of a dirty ear canal.
In that case, the ear wax removal candle comes to rescue. Indian candle or Ear Candle, or even Hopi’s Cone, originated among ancient civilizations. The ear candle has been used in medicine for centuries, being known in ancient civilizations as the Aztecs, Greeks, Romans and other continents.
1 How is the ear wax removal candle used?
Candle fire burns the cone and creates an atmospheric vacuum that unclogs wax buildup, fermentation and debris. This way a sense of well-being is created. It is a natural, non-invasive process that can aid in various health-related discomfort effects.
When lit at the top, the column of rising air inside the candle begins to heat up. As the candle burns down, it continues to heat the top of the upward air column in the center of the candle. The upward air column creates a very gentle suction action at the base, which helps loosen the compacted wax.
At the same time, beeswax and other ingredients (which are infused into the tissue of the tube) are vaporized. These ingredients, some of which are slightly oily, make part of the air inside the heavier candle. They then spiral down inside the ear canal. Once down, they create pressure waves and the gentle sound waves of crackling ingredients massage the eardrum.
Since even the smallest movement of the eardrum is performed onward to the middle and inner ear, all structures of the ear receive a smooth gem mass. As the ear, nose, throat and sinuses are interconnected this has the effect of regulating and balancing the pressure in the ears as well as the entire upper respiratory tract.
