• Ear Candling

  • Ear candling is a traditional therapy used by the ancient Greeks and popularized by the Hopi Indian tribe of the American South-West.  The candle is made of organic cotton, coated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils.

    How it works

    Fully dressed the client lies down on their side, with their head supported on a pillow so the auditory canal is vertical.

    The process involves placing the lit candle comfortably at the opening of the ear canal. The resulting gentle suction draws excess ear wax and impurities into the candle.

    Ear candling can benefit:

    • Sinusitis
    • Glue ear
    • Hay fever
    • Rhinitis
    • Excessive ear wax
    • Colds
    • Diminished hearing (due to excess ear wax)
    • Tension headaches
    • Stress

    *Some people report an enhanced sense of smell and/or hearing after ear candling, which may take a few minutes to adjust to.

    **Ear candling should not be used if there is inflammation or infection in the ear and is not suitable for persons who have had recent ear surgery or those with ear grommets or tubes, perforated ear drums or allergies to any of the products in the candle.
