You may have heard that ear candling is an easy way to get rid of ear wax at home. However, studies show that ear candles do not effectively remove wax and can be very dangerous. In fact, the FDA has issued warnings to consumers and healthcare providers alike not to use ear candles due to the risk of serious injury.
The warm sensation created by ear candling can feel nice, but it comes with inherent dangers including candle wax melting and clogging your ear canal, burns from the flame or melted wax, soot deposits in the ear, or even a punctured eardrum. Additionally, no evidence suggests that ear candling is an effective treatment for any condition.

I followed the directions to the T. This is the first product that has worked for my husband. Every other product I have tried, he always ends up going to the doctor to finish it. This time it worked and he can hear. Thank You!!!!
Washed out my ears and was surprised at the wax buildup that came out. Could hear a lot better. Thanks for a great product. Easy to use.
After several attempts to remove ear wax without success, when I saw Wax-Rx, I must admit I was skeptical about the product. OMG it worked like a miracle. Huge wax FINALLY was removed from my both ears. And it was an easy task as long as you follow instructions. THANK YOU!!
It is an easy product to use and very effective. Much cheaper than going to the doctor's office.
Wax-Rx worked as it said. I had wax problems in my left ear. It took 3 or 4 bottles to spray. When I was done it was like night and day with my hearing. I highly recommend Wax-Rx.
First time I used this system, I was amazed what came out of my ear. I could hear again!
