Hopi Ear Candling

(Theraml Auricular Therapy)


The 'candles' are hollow tubes made in the traditional Hopi Indian way and inserted into the ear.  Organically grown woven cotton is impregnated with honey extracts, essential oil of sage, 100% pure beeswax and crushed traditional Indian medicinal herbs (mainly sage and chamomile). When lit the light suction action (chimney effect) creates a vibration of air in the ear candle, helping to gently massage the eardrum, draining and clearing impurities from the ear canal. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. After both ears have been treated the face and ears are massaged. This treatment is often a suitable alternative to having the ears syringed and may be helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness.

Hopi Ear Candling has many positive benefits and may help with a variety of conditions of the ear. These include -

  • Excessive ear wax  
  • Discomfort in ears and sinuses
  • Sinus problems
  • Regulating pressure where it relates to rhinitis, sinusitis, glue ear, colds / flu and migraines
