What Are Hopi Ear Candles
Hopi ear candling is a therapy that was originally used by native American Indians and the Ancient Greeks.
This ear coning technique promotes good general health and wellbeing, with the main aim of this treatment being to remove ear wax.
These candles will help to fight ear infections and hay fever as well as relieve emotional feelings such as stress. It can restore mucus secretions and help with lymphatic drainage.

How Do Hopi Ear Candles Work
During this treatment, you will remain fully clothed.
The ear candle is tucked into your ear, specifically, your outer ear canal. The candle is not actually a candle like you may think. It is a hollow tube made out of cotton flax.
The flax consists of extracts of honey extracts, St john’s wort, beeswax, sage and herb oils.
The candle is then lit at the opposite end to the one placed in your ear canal. The oils in the cotton then vaporises and travels down the centre of the hollow tube, then into the outer portion of it.
Warm air that is produced, alongside with the honey and herb oils, softens the wax and it then begins to transit to the base of the candle.
Once this is complete, the therapist will remove the hopi ear candle. Once one ear is done, the same process will occur on the other.
The treatment is finished with facial drainage.
How Long Does The Treatment Last?
This process will typically last 45 mins, in order to be able to effectively fight infections, remove compacted ear wax from your ear drum and benefit further conditions.
How Often Should You Have This Ear Candle Therapy?
It is recommended that you should have no more than 2 candles, per ear, per treatment.
For the best results, we recommend 5-7 treatments overall and do not advise you have more than one application with a 48 hour period.
Is it Safe?
When done by qualified therapists, like ours, it is a safe procedure for your ears.
We do not advise clients to do this on their own.
It is common for people to purchase their own Biosun hopi ear candles that have their own astringent properties, however if not performed correctly, you can cause damage to yourself.
