Are you wondering where to buy candle ear wax removal kits? Read on!
Ear wax candles are hollow cones made of fabric covered in wax. Most ear candles are about a foot in length. The pointed end of the candle is placed in your ear, while you light the slightly wider end. Proponents of ear candling claim that the warmth created by the flame causes suction, which pulls earwax and other impurities out of the ear canal and into the hollow candle.
Where can I buy ear wax removal candles
If you are wondering where can I buy candle ear wax removal, you will be happy to know that they are available at most pharmacies as well as Amazon, Walmart, and specialist health and holistic stores. Although these stores sell ear wax removal candles, that doesn’t necessarily mean that ear wax candles are the best way to remove ear wax.
Are ear wax candles safe?
Ear wax candles result in very little benefit and even some danger when being used. There’s no evidence to suggest that they help remove ear wax, and research indicates they involve a high level of risk to the sensitive inner ear. In 2017, the American Academy of Otolaryngology published updated clinical practice guidelines for earwax removal, stating, “Ear candling or ear coning is NOT a safe option for earwax removal. Research shows that ear candling does NOT create a vacuum to suck earwax from the ear.”
Very few studies have illustrated the benefit to using ear candles, however many have shown evidence of potential risk and harm. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) even issued a warning to consumers and healthcare providers not to use ear candles because they can cause serious injuries, even when used according to directions. The FDA added that they’ve received reports of people who experienced burns, perforated eardrums, and even ear canal blockages that required surgery caused by ear candles.
