Ear Candling is a pleasant non-invasive treatment. It is used to relieve conditions in the head and ear area, such as sinus problem, compacted ear wax, tinnitus and headaches or simply as an enjoyable means of relieving stress.
The treatment requires a pair of specialised candles to be used in the ears - they are not candles as such but hollow tubes made from cotton, linen or hemp, which are sprayed with beeswax and infused with honey and herbs. We only use Biosun Hopi ear candles. These are certified products under EC guidelines so they have been well tested and are safe to use. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed.
When not to use Hopi candles :
- If grommets are in place.
- If there is inflammation or infection.
- In the event of an allergy to the contents.
The burning of these candles takes about 10 minutes for each ear, followed with a gentle lymphatic massage of the face and scalp to enhance the effects of the candling.
