Ear Coning (also known as Ear Candling), is a simple, effective method for removing ear wax build-up, fungus and impaction from within the ear canal. The process can also regulate sinus pressure; assist with post nasal drip, sinusitis, migraines, some forms of hearing loss, and restoration of equilibrium. It requires a hollow candle that tapers at one end to fit into the ear. The other end when lighted draws oxygen for the flame and creates a vacuum. This has the effect of pulling out residue and cleansing the sinus cavity. Ear Coning was a technique used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Tibetans.
