Ear Candles (Thermo-auricular Therapy)
A complementary therapy using ear candles
Ear Candling is a traditional therapy that has been around for thousands of years, used by both the Ancient Greeks and, it is said, the Hopi Indian Tribe of South West America. The original use of ear candles was for aura and spiritual cleansing for purifying. They were used to cleanse and harmonise the different energy fields of the body
The candle is a hollow tube, about 20cm long with a burning length of about 14cm, made of organically grown flax with honey extracts, beeswax and powdered herbs including Chamomile, Sage and Hypericum as used by the Hopi Indians.
When the lit candle is placed in the ear it induces a light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame generates a vibration of air in the candle. The effect of this is a gentle massage of the eardrum and a regulation of pressure in the ears, sinuses and head.
Concentrated herb enriched vapour is deposited in the auditory canal, protecting and soothing irritated areas
Local heat and changing pressure stimulates the peripheral blood circulation, thus intensifying the immunological defence system and aiding the cleansing circulation of the lymph glands.
