Hopi Ear Candle
An ear candle is a hollow tube made from natural cotton and is impregnated with honey, sage, chamomile and beeswax. The candles I use are made by Biosun who have been manufacturing Hopi Ear Candles for over 20 years. The candles are a medical product consistently checked for high quality and safety standards
Hopi Ear Candling /Thermal Auricular Therapy
A traditional healing technique of the Native American Hopi Indians, this is an effective, non-invasive means of treating a variety of ear, nose and throat conditions. As the candles burn they create a vapour infused with therapeutic herbs. Their tube shape creates a chimney effect, drawing away the vapour and any impurities from the ear. Gentle heat from the candle stimulates the blood and lymph circulation, boosting the immune system and regulating pressure within the sinuses.
