Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi ear candles were traditionally used by the Native American Hopi Indians to cleanse and harmonise the different energy fields of the individual aura and to drive out negative energies. Ear candles are made today based on an old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians. The candles are hollow tubes impregnated with honey, beeswax and healing herbs.
One end of the candle is lit and the other end inserted into the ear. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they may be gently removed. They equalise pressure in the head and ears thus making them suitable for many conditions. It is an intensive but pleasant and usually painless experience.
Hopi ear candles can treat:
• Excessive or compacted wax in the ears
• Sinusitis and rhinitis
• Glue ear
• Vertigo and Meniere’s syndrome
• Energetic revitalisation in cases of hearing impairment
The Ear candles mode of action
The Ear candles have a purely physical effect. A light under pressure (stack effect) and the vibration waves of the air in the candle, which are caused by the movement of the flame, create a gentle massage for the ear drum.
A cross-section of the ear
This leads to an intensive feeling of pleasant warmth and a “liberating” balancing of pressure in the ear, forehead and sinuses.
Directly after the treatment, this physical effect is often described subjectively as a feel-good, pressure and pain-soothing sensation, mainly in the area around the ear and in the head. It can also lead to a clearing of the nasal passages and to an improved sense of smell, especially where people had a blocked nose before the treatment.
In addition, the whole ceremony leads to a wonderful sense of relaxation. A deep feeling of security and happiness, which is rare to find!
