Commonly known as Hopi ear candles
In the comfort of your own home
Hopi Ear Candles are an ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native American Indians for many years.
The Hopi candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. To stiffen the flax, they are impregnated with extract of honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and lemongrass) the healing properties of which have been known to the Hopi tribe for hundreds of years.
The candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. To me it sounds a bit like sparklers but very therapeutic, as it burns it produces a gentle local heat. The warm air combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax and draw it into the base of the candle. The candle is then removed and the ear and surrounding area is then massaged. The treatment is repeated on the other ear and then a complete facial massage is carried out, paying particular attention to the sinus areas.
