Quite different from conventional wax candles, a Hopi ear candle is
actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic
oils, that is painlessly inserted into the ear to draw out impurities,
relieve pressure in the head and sinuses, and aid hearing problems.
The candles are made from natural ingredients that include sage,
St John’s wort, camomile and beta-carotene. Otherwise known as
thermo-auricular therapy, the original source of the technique seems to
be from medical ceremonies performed by a native American Indian tribe
called the Hopis (meaning ‘peaceful people’).
What does it involve?
Clients are usually advised to remove makeup and jewellery before the
treatment starts. Fully dressed the client lies down on their side,
with their head supported on a pillow so the auditory canal is vertical.
The candle is then lit and the non-burning end is placed gently into
the outer ear passage and is turned lightly to seal it in place.
The candle then generates a pleasant crackling sound and a warm,
comfortable feeling while it draws out the impurities from the ear.
After around 10 minutes the process is repeated on the other ear. This
is followed by a period of relaxation, and sometimes a facial massage
concentrating on the sinus areas.
How does it work?
When lit, the ear candle generates a gentle heat which, when combined
with the therapeutic oils, produces a light suction action. This is
known as the chimney principle, and works by drawing impurities gently
to the surface, where they can be removed.
Most deposits evaporate and are carried away through the candle
‘chimney’, but some are found in the condensed candle wax residue after
it is removed from the ear. None of the candle residue actually goes
into the ear.
What is it good for?
Users of Hopi ear candles have reported success in
and inner ear problems, build up of wax, ringing in the ears, tinnitus,
hearing difficulties and sinus problems as well as colds, ‘flu, sore
throats, stress, headaches and migraines. The treatment is suitable for
children and is a good alternative for people who have found syringing
What are the benefits?
Many clients find the treatment relaxing. As well as the relieved
feeling that comes from reduced pressure in the ears and sinuses,
clients may experience a general calming effect.
