Hopi Ear Candles is also known as “thermal auricular therapy”. Historical roots can be found among the people of the Siberian prairies, Asia and the native North and South American Indians. The Hopi, the oldest Pueblo people with great medicinal knowledge and a high degree of spirituality, brought this knowledge to Europe.
What are the candles made of?
The ingredients or the ear candles being used are used to minimise any risk of an adverse reaction by the receiver. The candles are a cotton tube impregnated with Honey extracts, pure Beeswax, Sage, St John’s Wort, Chamomile, Beta-Carotene/Vitamin A. In some cases essential oils can be used and added to the candles.
How they work
The pressure inside the ear candle, and the vibration or the rising air column, works like a chimney, which serves to massage the ear drum and promote secretion in the sinuses. The warmth also invigorates the immune system and gently stimulates the flow of lymph. The candle is placed into the ear to draw out impurities, relieve pressure in the head and sinuses, aid loss of hearing due to excessive wax build up and help with ear ache. The whole treatment brings a wonderful relaxation, a deep sense of security and a feeling of happiness, which is seldom experienced. Further treatment may be required within 2 days to 2 months of the initial session depending on what is found in the candle residue at the end of the session. It is recommended that three to four sessions constitute an initial course of treatments especially if the condition has been chronic for a long period.
