EAR CANDLING... the ancient art of

Have you ever met a person who I would describe as a "Human Wax Machine"? Their ears produce so much ear wax that it causes all kinds of problems from headaches to sinus problems. Well, welcome to my family. My lovely wife Bette is a wax machine that won't quit. She passed this wonderful trait along to our two children. So... the problem EAR WAX... the solution... EAR CANDLING. You will find this totally facinating and you won't believe what comes out of the human ear!

    Samuel actually was not able to sleep all night and this little encounter took place about 6:00 in the morning. After the candling he went on to a full day of swimming, rocket camp and baseball. I was a skeptic... but I have come around to believe.

    Omg! We learned of this about a year or so ago in a health food store. I about fainted when the lady told us about it; I thought she had flipped or lid. But, she finally convinced us to try it and to our amazement, it worked!

    I need more details. I have a problem with ear wax and would like to know how to do this. The "candle is a piece of muslin dipped in wax and then formed into a tube? Do you form it around something like a knitting needle or something?

    I'm half grossed out and half facinated. I'll have to google about it a bit more. But I would definately try it.

    I always wanted to see this done. Will the wonders of vlogging never cease? I am one of those "human wax machines" that you speak of. How does one actually get started ear candling?

    I would be interested in buring an ear candle without sticking it in someone's ear and see if any of that gunk accumulates.

    That might make another good vlog.

    I had the same attitude not believing the candle was really doing anything. After over 1000 candles on probably 50 persons... you really begin to see how amazing the process is. From candles that have absolutely nothing in them... rare and usually the first one... to candles that are so full up crap, they begin leaking back into the ear as the flame burns down closer to the ear.

    Thanks for watching... come back again soon.
