    Earwax Candles

    Has anyone had any experiences with these? I have heard mixed things about them, but I am interested in trying them.

    Tried them before.. They definitely get some **** out of there. Not sure if there's any additional benefit besides clean ears.

    A little advice though.. Don't open them up and look inside if you have a weak stomach.

    My family had these when I was younger! I thought they made a noticeable difference.

    Do they sell these at craft fairs or flea markets? Just looking for some early Xmas presents, they sound like a great idea..... Oh wait, that's not what you are talking about.

    Nevermind.

    The stuff you see when you look inside is not wax from the ears but the wax coating of the candle/paper. It doesn't remove ear wax.

    Seriously? Wow I've tried it once and couldn't believe all the wax. Makes sense now, just another hokey "new ager" money grab.

    Wrong man. I know this is wrong because some candles have little to no "wax" on the inside, when others have a ton.
