Ear candles were used traditionally by Shaman healers (it’s interesting to note that Hopi means peaceful people). Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe.
The candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. To stiffen the flax, they are impregnated with bees wax and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St Johns wort), the healing properties of which have been known to the Hopi tribe for hundreds of years.
The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions.
During a treatment the candle is gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit and held in a vertical position. As the candle burns down you will be given a gentle neck massage.
Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle “chimney”, although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.
