Making Homemade Ear Wax Candles

## Making Homemade Ear Wax Candles
Homemade ear wax candles are a great way to clean out your ears and improve your hearing. Earwax is beneficial to your health, but when it accumulates in your ear canals, it can cause a lot of discomfort. Ear wax candles are designed to help with this issue. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make your own ear wax candles at home.

## Step 1: Gather Materials
You will need the following materials to make your ear wax candles:
– Beeswax
– Cotton Wick
– Candle Mold
– Essential Oils (optional)

## Step 2: Prepare the Wax
First, melt the beeswax in a double boiler or in a small pot on the stove. While the beeswax is melting, cut the cotton wick so that it is the same length as the diameter of the mold. Then tie a knot at the bottom of the wick, as this will help to keep the wick in place when you pour the melted wax into the mold.

## Step 3: Pour the Wax
Once the wax is melted and the wick is ready, it’s time to pour the wax into the mold. If using essential oils, add a few drops of essential oil to the wax to give the candle a pleasant scent. Stir the wax to ensure that the essential oils are fully incorporated. Now carefully pour the melted wax into the mold, ensuring that the cotton wick is centered in the middle.



## Step 4: Let the Wax Set
Once you have finished pouring the wax, let the candle cool and set for 24 hours. During this time, the wax will harden and form the candle. If you notice any air bubbles in the wax, you can gently heat a skewer and place it on the bubble to make them disappear.

## Step 5: Remove the Candle
After 24 hours, the wax should be fully hardened. Take the candle out of the mold and trim the excess wick, if needed. Your homemade ear wax candle is now ready to use!

## How to Use an Ear Wax Candle
When using an ear wax candle, you should always proceed with caution. It is important to never put the candle too far into your ear canal and to remove any excess wax from the outside of the ear with a cotton swab or tissue. When burning the candle, hold it at a slight angle and never leave it unattended. Once the candle starts to smoke, blow it out and let it cool for a few minutes before attempting to remove it from the ear.

Homemade ear wax candles can provide a safe, natural way to clean out your ear canals and reduce the accumulation of wax. With the right materials, these candles are quick and easy to make and use to help with any ear-related issues.
