Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi ear is a deeply relaxing calming and soothing treatment offering real and marked benefits for many problems and conditions associated with the ears, nose and throat. Unlike conventional candles that burn from a lit wick that runs up the centre of the candle, a hopi ear candle is actually a cotton flax tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils, that is painless inserted into the ear to draw out impurities, relieve pressure in the head and sinuses, and aid hearing problems. Ear candles are ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native Americans for many centuries. The ear candle is an all-natural product, the contents of the candles have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, healing, analgestic, antiseptic, soothing and anti-oxidant properties. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities. it is important to note that the candle does not suck wax out of the ear; it stimulates the ear to eliminate the wax naturally, ensuring maximum safety.
