Hopi Ear Candling is an ancient and natural therapy which offers physical benefits, helping to relieve a range of conditions, such as:
- Excessive or compacted ear wax
- Sinusitis and or Rhinitis
- Headaches and Migraines
- Hay fever
- Colds and Flu
- Can also be for general relaxation.
The ancient Greeks are thought to be the first to use ear candles for cleansing and purifying and also for spiritual healing. This practice then migrated to America, where the Native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona used it widely to treat and heal, mainly by Shaman healers. This gave this treatment its name today – Hopi Ear Candling Therapy. Hopi means peace in native American.
The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula which originates from the Hopi Indians. Hopi Ear Candling is a deeply relaxing, calming and soothing treatment to help maintain and create a ‘healthy head’.
How they work
Once the candles are lit the ingredients inside are burnt, which causes convectional air flow towards the first part of the ear. The candle creates a mild suction which allows the smoke to gently massage the eardrum and the auditory canal of the ear, this enables the ear to work more effectually enabling excess ear wax along with other impurities can then be drawn out.
The candles used for this treatment are designed specially with a safety filter and are marked to show the maxium burn level. These candles are made from linen, 100% pure beeswax, honey extract and essential oils.
