Ear candles, also known as an ear cones, are thin, hollow tubes of linen or muslin cloth, soaked in paraffin or beeswax and tapered at one end. Some are scented with herbs, honey or aromatherapy oils. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed and balancing the pressure in the head and ears.

It is a deeply relaxing and calming treatment.
