Jessica Simpson is offering fans an earful this Yuletide season – and not the kind created by caroling on your neighbor's doorstep.
She has posted a video to her Twitter account that shows her practicing an ancient technique, called ear candling, designed to clearing out ear wax.
The holistic treatment is a present is from her hairstylist and BFF, Ken Paves, who also shot the video of Simpson undergoing the process. As one can see, she maintains her radiant smile throughout.
There's also a Papa John's pizza box at the ready to catch the, uh, drippings.
"Who gives this kind of a gift?" the singer waxes quixotically to her Tweet fans.
Supporters of the folk-medicine practice claim that candling not only removes wax but toxins too – and promotes health for the ears, sinus cavities and throat. Some claim there are additional benefits, including preventing migraines and restoring equilibrium.
Simpson's reaction? "I'm giving you the remains," she tells Paves. "It's making me nauseous."
