Hopi Ear Candles


What are Hopi ear candles?


Hopi ear candling is an ancient and natural clearance therapy for problems relating to the ear, nose, throat and face.  Hopi Ear Candles are 100% natural and are  made from flax, honey beeswax and herbs such as sage, camomile and St John’s Wort.  They are shaped to form a hollow tube approximately 10 inches long with a filter 3 inches from one end. The client lies comfortably on their side, the candle is lit and placed gently into the entrance to the auditory canal.  As the candle burns a gentle warmth is experienced around the ear.  This warmth stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation which is soothing and calming.  Both ears are treated to maintain balance and the treatment includes a face massage to maintain relaxation. 


How do Hopi Ear Candles Work?


The candles work on the chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed.  They equalise the pressure in the head and ears.  Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits.  Most of these are carried away through the candle ‘chimney’, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax reside after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after. 

The history of Hopi ear candles


Ear candling is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations.  The Ancient Greeks used ear candles for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis.  The practice reached the modern world via the native American Hopi Indians (it is interesting to note that Hopi means peaceful people).  The candles were traditionally used by Shamen healers.  The candles are still hand made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
