Ear Candles

Sure, earwax is kind of gross, but even cleaning it out with a Q-tip can cause problems, so why risk using a burning candle to get rid of the gunk?

There’s no proof whatsoever that these fiery contraptions will actually draw the wax out of your ears. Instead, users are likely to end up with burns, middle-ear damage, or even eardrum perforation that can lead to ear infections and hearing problems, says Dr. Raj.

Not to mention, isn’t it just common sense not to put a burning candle near your face, hair, or ears?
