Ear Candle Ingredients
At the time of writing* the following are listed as the ingredients of BioSun Hopi Ear Candles, a type of ear candle used by some therapists in the UK:
- 100% Pure Beeswax
- Honey Extracts
- Sage - a herb that has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties.
- St.John's Wort
- Beta-Carotene (pre-cursor to Vitamin 'A') - Vitamin A fights infections and strengthens the immune system.
Anyone who suspects that he or she might have an allergy to any of the above should mention it to the therapist before receiving an ear candling treatment. As other brands and formulations of ear candles are also available, other ingredients might also be present and / or some of the above might be omitted in some ear candles and 'ear cones'.
When concerned about allergies or for any other reason, check the packaging for details about the specific ear candling product that might be used.
If a person has or suspects that he or she has an allergy to any ingredient in this type of product the therapist might recommend an alternative treatment instead of ear candling.
