Hopi Ear Candling is a natural ancient therapy that has been used for thousands of years by many civilisations. The name Hopi comes from the oldest tribe of Pueblo people from North America who had a great deal of medicinal knowledge and spirituality.
Shaman healers used ear candles and it is believed that the Ancient Greeks did too, possibly for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual level and much later, on a physical level.
Why Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi Ear Candling is an excellent and non-invasive treatment suitable for problems and conditions related to the ear, nose and throat areas. Below is an example of complaints that it may be able to help. It is important to note that more than one treatment may be required and like so many holistic therapies, it has accumulative benefits meaning the more you have, the better the results. However, you don't have to suffer from a condition in order to enjoy and benefit from Hopi Ear candling. This is a beautiful holistic therapy that encourages you to just relax.
When having this treatment, you will experience a gentle warming sensation which can feel quite soothing. You will hear crackling which is similar to that of a sparkler as the ingredients within the candle vaporise and the candle burns down. Generally, it will take around 10 minutes for the candle to burn down but sometimes it can happen faster and sometimes it can take longer. Once the candle has burnt down to the safe level, it will be extinguished in a bowl of water.
Once both ears have undergone the candling treatment you will receive a beautifully relaxing facial massage which includes some manual lymph drainage techniques. This will help to increase the benefits of the candling treatment you have just received and it is a lovely way to draw things to a relaxing and soothing conclusion.
Candles used in the treatment
There are 2 types of candles available for this treatment. Biosun Hopi ear candles are made by hand using a traditional recipe and the finest ingredients. Premium quality pesticide-free untreated cotton is used together with pure beeswax, honey extract, and the traditional herb of St Johns Wort and pure essential oils of chamomile and sage.
These candles contain a filter that at the end of the treatment are opened up and examined. This gives us a guide to see how effective the candling has been and also the recommendation for how often further treatments may be required. These are not suitable for vegans.
In addition to the traditional candles, a vegan option is available. These are made with certified organic cotton and food grade plant wax. There is a choice of either Eucalyptus, Lavender & Peppermint essential oils or just pure Lavender essential oil. These candles are perfect for relaxation and general well being.
This non-evasive treatment is suitable for just about everyone but as always, there are some cases when it would not be appropriate to have a treatment. These include:
