The candles are cotton tubes impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils.
During the treatment you lie down on your side and the ear candle is placed in the outer ear until it burns down slightly, it feels very comfortable and warm. The gentle effect of the smoldering candle causes a light suction action, which helps to draw impurities out of the ear. The movement of the flame creates tiny vibrations in the airflow that gently massage the eardrum.
Hopi Ear Candling is not suitable for those with perforated eardrums, where grommets are in place or those who may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients or during pregnancy.
