  • Hopi Ear Candles

    Hopi ear candles are used to treat a number of conditions of the ear, nose and throat. Quite different from conventional wax candles, a Hopi ear candle is actually a cotton tube, infused with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils.

    Ear candling can also promote healing, boost your immune system, detox your lymphatic system, and even improve your vision, hearing and taste.

    Do you suffer from conditions related to your ear, nose or throat? Hopi ear candles are an ancient and natural therapy that can offer relief from issues such as sinus problems, compacted ear wax, tinnitus and headaches.

    Hopi ear candle treatments can also help to reduce inflammation in the ears and sinuses, relieve the symptoms of hay fever, rebalance your body’s natural flow, and generally calm and relax you when life is stressful.

    Hopi ear candles have been used to treat ear, nose and throat conditions since Ancient Greece, and many people find that regular ear candling treatments offer relief from:

    • Asthma
    • Vertigo & dizziness
    • Headaches & migraines
    • Hay fever
    • Pressure caused by travelling – some people choose to have this treatment to breakdown excess wax and relieve pressure before flying
    • Swimmer’s ear
    • Yeast infections
    • Sore throats
    • Sinusitis
    • Glue ear
    • Rhinitis
    • Snoring
    • Colds & flu
    • Anxiety
    • Stress

    The candles work by vaporising their ingredients and causing mild suction in the ear, which lets the vapours gently massage the eardrum and ear canal. Once the candle is placed in the ear, it forms a seal that enables wax and other impurities to be drawn out. Don’t worry, no wax or ash will drop into your ear.

    Some people feel Hopi ear candles provide more relief for blocked ears than ear syringing because the treatment draws the wax from the ear rather than compacting it in any way.
