Hopi Ear Candle

The Hopi Ear Candle can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area.
The candle, once lit, works by vapourising its ingredients, causing a convectional air flow towards the first chamber of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and auditory canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear, it forms a seal which enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out of the ear.

Other benefits include:

There is evidence of ear candling from all over the world, from Siberia, Asia and the native communities of North and South America. It is the Hopi Indians of north-east Arizona who lend their name to the treatment. They use candles in medicinal ceremonies and initiations to clear negative energies from the head and aura.

The candles can be used today as a relaxing treatment to ease away the stresses of our Western culture and to address a number of problems relating to the ear, neck and face areas.

Hopi ear candles are made of a linen type material which is impregnated with beeswax, sage, St.John's wort and chamomile - all relaxing ingredients.
