Ear candling at Melbourne Natural Wellness is a safe and natural treatment. We use TGA approved Practitioner-only candles that are handmade locally in Melbourne and blessed before being shipped to us. They are, from our experience, the only ear candling candles that truly work. Candling ears is a very holistic treatment, as it focuses on letting go of blockages within the body, both physically and emotionally. Commonly, candle ear wax removal is performed, but your practitioner may also suggest body candling depending on your concerns. Ear Candling Candles


How does ear candling at Melbourne Natural Wellness work? Practitioner-only (30 cm) length hollow candles are inserted through a hole in a small cone specially designed to fit comfortably in the ear. The ear wax removal candle is lit at the opposite end. This creates a low-level vacuum that draws ear wax and other debris out of the ear and into the hollow candle. After the ear candle treatment, a dark, waxy substance may be found as the therapist empties the ear wax candle contents onto a tissue for you to see. Many people find candle waxing the ears to be a satisfying procedure, as they can visually see all the excess wax they were carrying around. Ear candling is also very beneficial for sinus congestion and many people say they can hear and breathe more easily after a treatment. You should not feel any pain from the treatment − just a hissing noise and a warm feeling in your ear.

What comes out of the ear as a result of ear cleaning and ear wax removal by Melbourne Natural Wellness looks like curry powder and toffee. This is excess wax produced by the ear and mucus. View video here.
