(ANI): Jessica Simpson has posted a bizarre video on Twitter of her
using an ear wax candle. The singer received an ear wax candling
kit as a Christmas present from her hairdresser Ken Paves, and the
stylist videoed the star testing out the gift at her home, reports
the New York Daily News.
"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.
