Have any of you heard of this? How safe is it? Is it dangerous for children, I mean can the vacuum pressure "pop" their ear drums?

It's Easy to Do
It looks a little silly, but using these bees wax ear candles for ear candling is very easy to do and the person receiving the treatment doesn't feel any discomfort, may hear a slight "crackling" sound and usually feels considerably better after using the ear candle treatment.
Ear Candling has been around for thousands of years.
The Egyptians used reeds and Native Americans used corn husks dipped in beeswax to create a hollow candle.
Here's how it works.
The "patient" lies on their side (or places their head sideways on a pillow on top of a table) and an ear candle is placed, pointy end down, gently into the ear to form a seal. Basically, old earwax and noxious toxins are drawn up into the ear candle that has been placed gently in the ear and lit. The low flame of the burning candle creates a slow vacuum that softens and pulls the old earwax into the base of the ear candle. The whole process takes about 20 minutes per side and is quite relaxing.
