The traditional Earcandles have a relaxing aroma of honey, sage and camomile. They have been lovingly created by hand from cotton and beeswax in line with the tradition.
BIOSUN Earcandles are about 22 cm long and have a burning time of 10-12 minutes. Earcandles are used by setting them alight. Beware of the fire hazard!
Please store the Earcandles out of children’s reach. For safety reasons we do not recommend you to carry out the treatment by yourself. It should always be done by an assisting person (e.g. partner). This will ensure your safety during the treatment and enables a considerably deeper relaxation. Before you start, always place a glass of water within reach in order to extinguish the Earcandle.
Create a relaxed atmosphere before you start. Our American Indian relaxation music and aroma essences are particularly useful. You will experience earcandling much more intensely if you keep your eyes closed. The room should be draught-free, so the flame will burn smoothly. Keep yourself warm with a blanket. Lie down on one side in a comfortable position. Support your head slightly with a pillow so that the auditory canal is in an almost vertical position. Draught in the room while the Earcandle is alight can result in small, cold ash particles blowing off the Earcandle. In order to protect your hair and clothing, your partner can place a cover around the treatment area.
When preparations are complete, your partner sits comfortably next to you. He/She should light the Earcandle at the unlabeled end and place the non-burning end gently onto the outer ear passage. A light turning movement should be applied until the Earcandle is sealed in place. The Earcandle is placed properly when there is no smoke escaping from the side and you hear the pleasant crackling and hissing of the flame. Your partner will hold the Earcandle firmly in place throughout the process. He/She will take care that no hair is within reach of the flame.
Of course, the Earcandle has to be lit at the unlabeled end, opposite the safety filter! It will never put itself out! At the most, the Earcandle may be burnt down to 1 cm above the red line (maximum burn) marking. Carefully remove the remainder of the Earcandle and extinguish it in the glass of water ready nearby.
Treat both ears
It is generally advisable to treat both ears one after the other, each with a new Earcandle. Any condensation material that remains attached to the fine ear hairs should be removed.
A subsequent rest of about 15 - 30 minutes will positively support the overall result. Enjoy soft relaxation music and/or the smell of aromatic essences during this phase as well.
The Composition of Earcandles
The BIOSUN Ear Candle comprises a rolled piece of unbleached cotton, which is brushed with high quality honey extracts and divine Aroma Essences.
The lower end of the roughly 22-cm-long ear candle features the BIOSUN logo and a coloured marking. The inscribed end shows which end of the candle should be placed in the ear canal, whilst the coloured burn out marking provides a guide as to when the ear candle treatment has come to an end.
BIOSUN Earcandles are lovingly made by hand from the best natural ingredients, such as cotton, beeswax, honey extracts and essential Aroma essences, which are regularly inspected.
If unsure, always consult a professional.
In the presence of a perforated eardrum or tympanostomy tube implants we strictly do not recommend the use of Earcandles.
The same applies to all kinds of inflammations of the ear or skin conditions in and around the ear.
Very occasionally allergic reactions to its ingredients are reported. This takes the form of spontaneous itchiness and can be relieved with suitable eardrops.
