Hopi Ear Candling – £33.00

Ear candling is an ancient, mild and natural therapy and have been used by the Native Americans for many years. The ear candle has been named after the Native American Hopi tribe. The healing properties of the candle have been known for hundreds of years to the Hopi tribe. Hopi Ear Candling can be used to treat many conditions of the ear, nose and throat area.

The Hopi candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of cotton flax. To stiffen the flax, they are impregnated with extract of honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St Johns wort), the healing properties of which have been known to the Hopi tribe for hundreds of years. The making of the candles is a complex process and all genuine Hopi candles are made in the traditional manner.

The treatment is very gentle and relaxing and takes up to 30 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 and draw it into the base of the candle. The candle is then removed and the treatment is repeated on the other ear.

It is a safe and gentle treatment for children.
