Ear Canal

Are Ear Candles Safe?

The quick answer is no.  Ear candles are an alternative health treatment advocated for the removal of ear wax.  A hollow candle is burned with one end in the ear canal.  This is with the intent of creating a low-level vacuum to draw out wax.  However, the procedure does not guarantee ear wax removal, often causes burns and can leave ash residue in the ear canal.

We believe that modern microsuction is the only accurate, safe, gentle, comfortable method for cleaning ear canals.

TOLBECS does not recommend the use of ear candles.
