Ear candles are an ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native Americans for many years. Ear Candling can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area. The ear candles used today for ear candling treatments are still made on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians. Ingredients include beeswax, honey, essential oils and herbs.

The Ear Candling treatment

The ear candling treatment is very gentle and relaxing and takes 45 minutes. The candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. As it burns it produces a gentle local heat. The warm air combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax in the ear and gently encourage the wax out of the ear. The candle is then removed and the treatment is repeated on the other ear. The ear candling treatment is followed by a complete facial and scalp massage, paying particular attention to the sinus areas.

Ear candling may help with conditions such as:

  • Earache
  • Noises in the ear
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Glue ear
  • Pressure regulation
  • Sinus problems
  • Sore throats
  • Snoring (in some cases)
