Ear Cones

The Otosan cone derives from an ancient popular tradition. This simple, safe and effective method for resolving problems of the ear hygiene at home has now been improved by adding propolis, a natural cleansing substance renowned for its antibacterial properties.

The Otosan cone improves the ear’s natural defences and prevents a build-up of earwax, which often leads to problems such as buzzing, hissing or roaring sounds, unbalanced ear pressure, hearing loss and “blocked ear” feeling.Recommended by Doctors and a Class 1 Medical Device.

The University of Pavia, following various clinical and dermatological tests in its laboratories, released a positive testimonial on the use of the Otosan cone.Therefore, thanks to continuous research into the quality and safety of the product, the Otosan cone has obtained the qualification of class one medical device.

How it Works

Warm air produced by the lit otosan cone gently fills the ear canal, softening the earwax and – thanks to warm propolis vapours – giving effective protection to the ear. This heat also regenerates blood flow within the ear, resulting in a feeling of well-being, and of gentle relaxation.

The warm rising air creates a slight vacuum at the base of the cone. This helps in eliminating waste, deposits and water from the ear canal, and regaining the correct tension of the eardrum following sudden changes in atmospheric pressure.

Recommended Usage

  • Insert the otosan cone into the protective Disc (silvered side up) as far as the base of the Flame Breaking Ring. Light the wider end of the cone.
  • Insert the tapered end of the Otosan cone not too deeply into the ear, holding it as vertical as possible. No smoke should be visible between the cone and the ear. If smoke is visible between the cone and the ear, adjust the angle of the cone for a better seal.
  • When the flame has burnt down to the Flme Breaking Ring, stop treatment and erxtinguish the Otosan cone in a glass of water. Repeat the process with the other ear.


  • The Otosan cone, besides the PROTECTIVE DISC, has a FLAME-BREAKING RING, which automatically extinguishes the flame at the end of the treatment and makes it easier, safer and more practical to use.
