Gifting health nuts

Wax ecstatic — ear candling is back! This obscure form of ancient ear wax removal has resurrected itself, thanks to Wally’s Natural Products. If you know someone who enjoys all things organic, or maybe someone who has a lot of ear wax and a fear of medicinal ear drops, or possibly just someone who’s a little wacky, surprise them with Wally’s Beeswax Candle. Available in a variety of beeswax combos, this is a hollow candle to be placed in the outer ear canal and set on fire. Nature takes it from there: The oils and herbs (ingredients such as echinacea, tea tree oil and lavender) burn and smoke and then wax melts into the ear, which dries and gathers any unwanted debris. Find the candles for $7.99 at local food co-ops, natural food stores or GNC stores.
