Hopi Ear Candles

The Translation of the Word Hopi Means "Peaceful Ones"

Hope Ear Candles are named after the Native American tribe who first introduced this gentle therapy to the West. The Hopi nation is renowned for their extensive knowledge of healing and their spiritual lifestyle.

Ear candles are used widely throughout North America and Asia and although the current treatment has come to us from the Hopi tribe, the use of candles to treat ear problems has been known for centuries, having been used by Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.

What Is A Hopi Ear Candle

Ear Candles are an ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native American Indian for many years.

The Hopi 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 St Johns wort), the healing properties of which have been known to the Hopi tribe for hundreds of years. The making of the candle is a complex process and all genuine Hopi candles are made in this traditional manner.

The Treatment

The treatment is very gentle and relaxing and may take up to one hour, depending on the condition being treated.

The candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. It is allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. As it burns it produces a 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 outer ear and then a complete facial massage is carried out, paying particular attending to the sinus areas.

What Conditions Can Ear Candles Help?

Ear candles can help with the treatment of sinusitis, rhinitis, earwax, earache and irritation of the ears including tinnitus. It is also suitable for the treatment of headaches and migraines. It is not suitable for those with perforated eardrums, where grommets are in place or those who may have an allergy to the ingredients. It is safe and gentle for children.

The number of treatments depend on how long the candles take to burn down. Each treatment takes approximately 46-60 minutes and is very relaxing. It is advisable to put a few drops of warm olive oil in each ear for three days before treatment as this will help soften the wax, which will make it easier to remove. On the day of the visit you are advised to remove all make-up and earrings.
