Hopi ear candles MIGHT work for you - as they work for SOME people. It's horses for courses with things like tinnitus. I've treated people with tinnitus with homoeopathy and / or ear candles with success in some cases. There are lots of natural therapies that might help - it's finding the one for you that will. If nothing else, ear candling is massively relaxing. Contrary to some unreferenced "evidence" pulled by couple of respondees here, I've seen huge plugs of wax removed from peoples ears with candles including a sausage shaped piece about 3/4" long from my daughters ear when she was 3 years old. Explained the ear-ache she had! It never caused her a problem since & if her ears get a bit waxy, I do a treatment, the wax is removed (and there's a big difference between removed wax & candle residue) and all is well. In many years of using this treatment, I've never burned anyone. It's completely safe if you are trained in the practice, use the only candles that insurance firms will support, and you are sensible!
