i did them once about 5 months ago and have been fiending to do it again. it's completely satisfying in a visceral sort of way and your hearing does improve a bit. if nothing else, the process sounds like ocean waves in your ear!

ummmm... these things have been proven so many times to be total bull and actually responsible for a lot of ear damage.

if you're a bit fan of the placebo effect you might like em, but aside from that...

ear candling rules! your earhole will feel so great/refreshed after..... you need to have someone do it for you though since you have to hold the candle at a weird angle... ear candling parties 4ever.

I don't think it's good for you, healthwise.

It does feel sort of amazing tho...

Re: OMG!
They don't work. The stuff you see inside the cone is just the melted scunge from the "candle" itself- I was also terrfied my hair would catch on fire as big chunks of (occasionally still flaming) ash fell onto the shabby paper plate below. A visit to an ENT will *really* improve your hearing. They yanked a total CORK out of my earhole.
