Ear Candling, How to…
Supplies You Will Need:
Place a towel on the resting area to protect your furniture from wax drippings. Rest the person's head on a small pillow covered with a paper napkin or towel.
Take the paper plate and carefully cut an "x" 1 inch from the edge of the plate - with a sharp knife. Push the small tip of a new ear candle through the "x". Angle the candle so any wax drippings will fall on the plate. If you are concerned about setting the plate on fire, cover it with aluminum foil. Never use a foam plate. They are highly flammable.
Light the large end of the candle and insert the small end into the ear, angling the candle away from the person's face
Adjust the candle in the ear to seat it properly. (You may have the person assist you). If smoke is coming out of the ear, the candle has not been seated properly. Adjust until the smoke stops.
Trim the burning end into the water bowl every so often & use the skewer to push the debris out of the small opening of the candle.
Allow the candle to burn within 2-3” from the plate.
Remove the candle and turn it upside down over the water bowl to extuinguish.
Have the person turn over and repeat for the other ear.
Clean out the ears with a Q-tip dipped in oil or hydrogen peroxide 3%. This soothes the nerve endings. (NOTE: Do not go deeply. Clean only the part you can see).
If it is windy or cold, put some cotton in the person's ears for the first 3 hours to protect them. (When it's warm this isn't necessary).
