Ear coning (also known as candling) is an unconventional way to clean the ear. The process is gentle, safe, and non-invasive. The purpose is to remove wax and debris that is too deep to remove with hygiene aides like Q-tip.
Ear wax is a healthy lubricant that protects the inner ear, however too much can be problematic. People that have received coning have reported that it improves balance, relieves headaches and congestion, and finds it relaxing and soothing.
Ear coning is best done by a professional trained in this unique application for cleaning the ear.
