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 Ear Candling?
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.
Candles used in the treatment
The candles used in this treatment are Vegan Ear Candles, 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.
Alternatively you can choose the Biosun hopi ear candles. These 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 traditional herb of St Johns Wort and pure essential oils of chamomile and sage. These are not suitable for vegans.
Once both ears have undergone the candling treatment you will be treated to a beautifully relaxing facial massage which includes some manual lymph drainage which will help to increase the benefits of the ear candling, not to mention the fact that it is just extremely relaxing and therefore the perfect way to conclude the treatment.
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:
