My Ear Candling Experience

My Ear Candling Experience

Forever Beauty Inc.
254 Canal Street, Suite 3005, NYC
(At Lafayette Street)

I can’t remember the first time I heard of ear candling, and I’m not sure why I have this obsession with a flaming wax cone sucking wax and toxins from my ear. I have no hearing problems or wax excess that I know of, so it’s unclear even to myself as to why I dream of having this done.
In my ear candling fantasy, it’s relaxing to the point where I almost fall asleep, and it feels like my ears are slowly emptying its gooey wax, allowing me to hear things louder than ever before. In my wildest fantasy, some kind of insect that was impacted in my earwax for years comes out and I feel my ears open for the first time and my hearing is clear! None of this is true, but I let my mind wander as I walked to Forever Beauty Inc. (formerly Diamond in the Rough) on Canal Street in New York City. I chose this place because I saw good reviews on Yelp. I was directed to their new location on Canal and Lafayette, which was on the 3rd floor of the TD Bank building. 
When I arrived, the office was dark and empty. I started turning away thinking I might be getting myself some organs harvested instead of ear candling. But just as I started to tiptoe away, Tiffany came running to greet me. She welcomed me into a room with soothing music and a table to lie on. She explained the process to me and during the next 20 minutes she burned hollowed candles in my ears. It felt warm in my ears, and sounded like a crackling campfire. She was nice enough to pencil in my crazy untamed eyebrows and give me a scalp massage while the candles burned. I felt like a princess. After all, it was my birthday
When we cut the candles open to see what treats were inside, I saw only a few balls of wax but it was still a beautiful sight for me. Some people are against ear candling because it removes wax that is normal part of your inner ear. Also, when fire is involved, there is always a change of danger. I took the risk because I couldn’t help myself, and I probably won’t make this a regular event. But it was a wonderful birthday treat for me, and it only cost me $20. If you have any hearing problems or wax buildup, I recommend trying this out. Give Tiffany a call.
