TREATMENT QUESTIONS


What are ear candles used for?

Ear candles are best used to help certain problems involving pain and congestion. They are also helpful for relaxation, stress and anxiety problems.

Back to the Top  |  Contact Us  |  Order Form


How do I use the ear candles?

Ear candles are easy to use. For safety reasons we do not recommend that you carry out the treatment by yourself, it should always be done by a second person. This will ensure your safety during the treatment and enables a considerably deeper relaxation.

For detailed instructions on how to use the ear candles please click here.

Back to the Top  |  Contact Us  |  Order Form


How do ear candles work?

Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle.

This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth.

These benefits have been well known through 15 years of experience. To read more about how Biosun ear candles work click here.

Back to the Top  |  Contact Us  |  Order Form


How often should I use ear candles?

We generally recommend one treatment daily for up to seven days in acute cases, one to two times a week for chronic indications, and one treatment regularly every three to four weeks for preventative or revitalizing indications.

Back to the Top  |  Contact Us  |  Order Form


Should the treatment be performed on both ears?

Yes, each ear should be treated one after the other.

Can more than one candle be used on each ear during a treatment?

When should a person NOT use ear candles?

In the presence of a perforated eardrum or tympanotomy tube implants we strictly do not recommend the use of ear candles. The same applies to all kinds of inflammations of the ear or skin diseases in and around the ear.

If you suffer from a chronic or acute disease, or if you feel ear candling may not suit you, you should by all means consult a therapist of your confidence for further advice.

Can the ear candles be used on children?

BioSun ear candles can be used even on small children. Ear candles can be used on children who are old enough to clearly communicate what they are feeling, usually from 2.5 to 3 years. Also the child should not be frightened or need to be held down.

Does the ear candle remove wax from the ear?

The ear candles are not intended to remove wax from the ear and are not used for the purpose of cleaning the ear, however they may soften the wax to assist in cleaning.

Ear candles are best used to treat certain problems involving pain and congestion in the region, and for relaxation and treating stress and anxiety problems.

After the ear candle has burned a yellow powder can be seen. What is this?

The yellow powder is from the candle itself. It is the condensate of the beeswax that falls down inside the candle during the burning process. Because beeswax is a liquid (in solid form) it boils adjacent to the flame. This forms a vapor which then cools and solidifies (as a yellow powder) away from the flame.

I am taking anti-depressant medication. Will the St John's Wort in the ear candle react?

No. ear candles are no problem. The concern relates only to St Johns wort taken internally.
