Hopi Ear Candling (also so known as Thermal Auricular Therapy) is a pleasant & non-invasive gentle relaxing treatment of the ears used to treat various conditions. The Hopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes traditionally made from organically grown cotton or linen flax containing extracts of Beeswax, Honey and therapeutic herbs – Sage, Chamomile & St John’s wort.
The candles works as a “chimney effect” which is caused by the ingredients vaporising once lit, creating a vibration of air in the candle generating a massage effect of the eardrum and auditory canal. In turn this induces a warm & pleasant heat upon the head & ears which soothes, relieves & relaxes. The chimney effect also helps to soften ear wax and clears sinuses.
Hopi Ear Candling can be used to treat a number of conditions of the ear, nose and throat area these include:
- Hayfever & Sore throats
- Enhances hearing
- Glue ear
- Compact Ear Wax
