Harmony's Ear Candles are handcrafted to rigorous standards of quality and craftmanship. Each Candle is hand inspected and guaranteed for quality.
Let’s Start From the Beginning: What is an Ear Candle?
For a full description of what an actual ear candle is, please visit: http://www.earcandling.info/what-makes-a-great-ear-candle/
In a nutshell, a properly constructed ear candle is a hollow candle handcrafted (or made on a machine) with organic cotton strips and a clean burning wax. Once the actual candle is handcrafted it is super important to insert a properly constructed safety tip and a burn line label. Both of these items are integral to the safety of the user.
In the original complaint that was filed against the FDA, I maintained (and still do) a firmly held belief that candles are an integral part of personal comfort and health security that is grounded in the integration of body, mind, and spirit through their effective use of subtle energies. What? In other words, the warm smoke created from the ear candle helps the body to be able to relax and when the body relaxes, it stimulates the autonomic nervous system to shift away from a sympathetic state of being (think high stress, fight or flight) to a parasympathetic state of being (think relaxed, healing, calm. With the relaxation that takes place as a result of this transition, stress is meant to fade away and create a calm sensation that can help the mind and body connect in a way that heals the soul. https://www.aapsonline.org/hhslawsuit/aaps-v-sebelius-09-13-2010.pdf[CSM2]
Dr. Patrick Quanten, M.D., http://www.activehealthcare.co.uk/, who resigned his post as a medical doctor after he realized that his practice of Western Medicine was not only preventing people from recovering from illness, but was actually introducing illness, summarizes the effect of ear candling:
“For almost a century, scientists have proven that everything in the universe is energy, that all matter is essentially compressed energy.
A human being is an energy field. The physical part is at the centre of a large field that brings together waves and frequencies of a great variety. How this centre functions depends on the interactions that go on within the more elusive part of the human being.
All interactions between a human being and its outer-world are therefore also energetic. The result of these interactions we may observe in our physical world.
In fact, ear candles do not alter the physical state of your tissues in any direct way at all. Ear candles work in the way our physicists state the universe works; it has an energetic influence on the human functioning. Fire has traditionally been a powerful way to deliver heat and dryness to a malfunctioning system, as well as lighting it. Fire is a powerful healing tool, and has been for many thousands of years; a well trusted and tested tool, at that. Ear candling is one way of using this power in healing. People have used this method in all the major societies that humans have created throughout the ages, and across the whole globe.
Thus, all the effects observed from ear candling are a result of energetic changes brought about by the burning of the candle at that moment in those circumstances. Hence, the effects vary widely, as we also experience with everything else.”

“Ear candling does not remove earwax from the ear canal;
Ear candling delivers energy, which helps the body to heal itself.”
Patrick Quanten, MD
Bottom line: Ear candles are intended for relaxation not for removing ear wax. The proper use of ear candles encourages relaxation techniques, which as part of a healthy lifestyle, may help living with:
- Ear Infections
- Flu Symptoms
- Sore Throat
- Rough Days
- The FDA … just kidding LOL!
Dr. Quanten wrote a lengthy paper on Ear Candling and its Energetic Healing. Consider that the explanation of everything always leads us back to a conversation about energy. Ear Candles are no different! The extra energy that the fire of the candle brings to the energetic part of the human system is delivered to the densest parts of the human, the physical body, via the ear. Hence, there is a high concentration of energy surrounding that part of the body. (ed. Consider the fact that there are over 60 plus reflexology points in the ears, 3 chakras in the head region and 8 of 12 meridian pathways that start an end in the head region as well.) In a reasonably well-functioning system, this powerful energy will dissipate extremely quickly and the energy will flow away from the entry point across a large part of the field.
Ear candles are a part of good energy hygiene and are a synergistic approach to relaxation. Why?
More often than not, our sense of well-being is out of balance. People all over the world are seeking peace, relaxation and moments of happiness to balance the opposing rigors and stress of everyday life. People desire and need a feeling of security, peace of mind, as well as a sense of personal well-being that is inseparably related to happiness. Many people get that sense of well-being from the use of ear candles because it helps them relax during times of stress.
In this day and age, trying to meditate and find this state of Zen seems almost impossible. Who has time? How many people actually can do this? We all know transitioning to a relaxed and comfortable state is extremely valuable when we experience sensations of pain, congestion, pressure, etc.
It has been discovered through a study in Germany that this shift from the parasympathetic to the sympathetic state of being actually happens and is not a placebo effect of ear candling.
Many people report that using ear candles have helped them relax during these types of stressful situations:
- Ear aches
- Sinus infections and pressure
- Releasing blocked energy
- Relieving pressure points of tension
- Headaches and migraines
Could it be a placebo effect? Yes, we know that when we relax, that tension, stress and pressures disappear or more like, melt away. BUT, when tens of thousands of people all over the world report great benefits from using ear candles, it’s hard to contest the value of ear candling.
While no one can claim that ear candles treat or cure any condition or disease, they do appear to bring balance and promote healing to the body. Isn’t that the idea anyway? Giving our body the opportunity it needs in order to heal itself vs ‘curing’ its self with medications that have so many potential side effects? This is exactly what I noticed when I first ear candled my son.
Biosuns study provided a most valuable clue to the relaxation effect of ear candling. During the many years of candling tens of thousands of ears, I have noticed that one ear candle is just the beginning. As most people lay upon my massage table over the years, in the BETA state (do I scientifically know that – no. But I can assure that most of the volunteers were stressed out and could not wait to ear candle!) and as I began to ear candle them, they became calm, their breathing became more even/controlled/relaxed, many of them went to sleep or drifted off into relaxing dreams.
99% of the people that got up from my table had a smile on their face and a relief of pressure and tension. The most common compliment was/is “wow! I feel so open or relaxed or clear!” …
We witnessed over the past 25+ years that the second and third ear candle takes the ear candle user deeper and deeper into healing states of being that were otherwise easily unattainable …
