The candles are made out of cotton flax, genuine candles are made in the traditional way including impregnating them with honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St Johns wort). The candle is placed over the ear and ignited, producing a gentle heat, that combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax and draw it into the base of the candle. After this initial part of the treatment, the ear and surrounding area is massaged and the same procedure is followed on the other side. The treatment often finishes with a complete facial massage.
