"Who gives this kind of candle for a Christmas gift?" Simpson tweeted. In the clip, Simpson is seen with the lit candle wedged in her ear as she rests her head on a table. The star can be heard complaining that the process is making her feel nauseous.
Ear candling has been said to help improve a person's general health by lighting one end of a special hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. Despite claims the practice is ineffective, those who use the candles believe it can absorb excess wax and remove impurities and other toxins from the ear.
