Hopi Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton, soaked in beeswax, honey and herbs. When lit, the candle acts like a chimney, causing the warm air inside it to rise and creating a vacuum at the bottom. This vacuum gently stimulates the ear, facilitating removal of excess wax and impurities.
It involves positioning a candle in the ear and allowing it to burn to a measured level before gently removing it and extinguishing it in water.
The ear is then massaged to stimulate the pressure points on the ear, lymph nodes around the ear and the general blood flow through the ear. The second ear is then worked on in the same way before the entire face is worked on with a pressure point and drainage massage to stimulate the general release of blockages in the sinuses and ears and the flow of lymph and blood.
