New Scarf and Ear Candles?






So I finished another scarf today, along the same lines as the green one that sold on Friday. Instead of another green colored one, I knit this one in fall colors, shades of oranges and browns. What do you think?



Also, earlier today, my housemates were talking about these things that you stick in your ears and then light on fire! It is supposed to suck out all the wax and other ickies that accumulate in there. I did not attempt this, but my boyfriend did, he says it worked and he could hear much better.



Basically, what the device is, is cheese paper and parafin wax. The cheese paper is wound around a large paintbrush or something like it in a long funnelish shape and then dipped in the wax. When it is inserted into your ear it creates a vacuum and the fire on the other end uses up the oxygen in the tube and the ear canal and then it proceeds to pull out the gunky stuff inside your ear. It would work wonders for those with constant ear infections and the like.

I love the scarf! Beautiful colors! My daughter had ear trouble last year and we did the ear candle and it cleared right up! Very cool!

My twin sister is interested in this. I would never put something in my ear, then light it on fire. Weird!

Yup, heard of ear candling and have had it done by a professional. It works and its very relaxing. There is no pain at all. Great scarf too by the way!!

I have always had ear problems. I have never heard of an ear candle. It looks scary but I might give it a try.

The scarf is gorgeous, but the ear thing is just scary. I could not stick something in my ear then light it on fire.

I have had this ear candling done several times, and it works great.
