Hopi Ear Candling
What are Hopi Candles?
Hopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.

The hand-made structures are hollow tubes which contain honey, sage, St Johns Wort and camomile. The candle is then lit and the resulting gentle suction and vacuum draws the wax and impurities from the ear and produces a light suction action.
