My WFMW this week is one that internet and RL people ask me about a lot. Ear candles. I love ear candles!!
My oldest produces a lot of earwax, and that caused her to have poor hearing and ear infections. Years ago someone turned me on to ear candles and they have been a huge blessing ever since.
If one of the children has an earache I will use the ear candles on them. We had another gymnastics family whose daughter was suddenly unable to keep her balance. She kept falling off of the beam and was very unsure on the floor and vault. I took a pair of ear candles by for her to try. The young lady had so much ear wax that it was throwing her equilibrium off!
Here is me doing Ms. Serious’ (12) ears today.
Here are the ear candles. They are available at any good health food store. I pay $1.89 for each.
Cut a hole into a paper plate to put the ear candle into. I suggest the large paper plates.
I have lit the top and inserted the candle into her ear. The candle just sits into the opening of the ear canal. They can hear some of the popping as the candle burns down. If there is smoke coming from around the bottom of the candle you need to insert it a little further.
As the candle burns down, I trim off the burnt part and put it into a glass of water.
Here is what it pulls out. There is ear wax all the way up with the bulk of it at the bottom. I am always amazed! LOL
I have to admit that I was a little intimidated the first time I used ear candles, but I quickly got over it when I saw how easy it was and how well they worked.
So, ear candles for stuffy ears, wet ears, ear aches or lots of earwax, that is what works for me!
