Ear Candle - Good, Bad or Neither?

I have seen this done on tv and it looks so disgusiting, yet i cant say that I am not tempted to try it. Just the thought of cleaning out all that wax and dirt out of my ears makes me want to do it.

Has anyone done it and fouind it to be beneficial in anyway?

Re: Ear Candle

I have not tried this myself, but I'm curious if it works as well!

Skip it

After doing a bit of research, I came across a few articles including some experiments. The definitive answer seems to be that the practice is a bit of bunk and can actually be harmful. Here is one site I found helpful (and it cites sources): http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/candling.html
