The soothing properties of the Ear Candle has its foundation in two primary physical actions. 

Firstly, the slight under pressure (the chimney effect) inside the Ear Candle and the vibration of the rising air column serve to gently massage the ear region.

This has an immediate subjective effect of lightness and clarity. Users often describe a soothing, light sensation in the ear and head area. 

Secondly, the locally applied warmth creates a comforting sensation as though the blood flow through the area has increased. At the same time, important acupuncture points and reflex zones may be stimulated.


Ear Candling Instructions:

1. Lighting the Ear Candles

Lie the patient down on his/her side in a comfortable position.  Support the head slightly so that the auditory canal is in the vertical position.  It is best to sit on a chair by the patient’s head.  Now light the Ear Candle at the end without the red printing. 

The Ear Candle will continue to flame throughout the treatment.

2. Positioning the patient

Fit the Ear Candle (not the burning end of course!) gently, but tightly into the auditory canal with a gentle twisting movement.  If the candle fits properly, no mist should issue from between the Ear Candle and the ear.

3. Therapy

Hold the Ear Candle loosely between the forefinger during the therapy. Do not squeeze tightly together!  Keep the Ear Candle as vertical as possible.  The patient will experience a pleasant crackling and rustling noise during the burning, in the final phase, the heat flow intensifies comfortingly and pleasantly.Do not worry, the linen fabric which has already burned does not fall during the burning process.

4. Extinguishing the Ear Candles

Leave the Ear Candle in place until it has burned down about 2/3 of its length, to 1cm above the red line.  No further!  Carefully remove the remainder of the Ear Candle and extinguish it in the glass of water.

5. Rest Period

After both ears have been treated, we recommend a subsequent rest of 10 to 15 minutes.  This greatly assists the overall effect.  The patient should remain lying down and can be comfortably covered with a blanket.  Gently massage the ear, face and neck to enhance the effect.

6. Examine

Check the ear canal for any condensate residues.  Remove these carefully with an ear cleaner or small wooden stick.  Do not push the residue back into the ear.  Do not use a cotton bud.


Ear Candles are easy to use.  Ensure that the atmosphere is calm and relaxed, so that the Ear Candle can display its full effect.  The patient can contribute here by keeping his/her eyes closed.  Before the therapy is started, ensure that there are no draughts in the room.  Place a glass of water within reach, so that the remainder of the Ear Candle can be extinguished after it has burned down.  As a precaution, the surrounding region of the head may be covered with a cloth.  Take precise note of the following instructions and their sequence.
