A Brief History of Hopi Ear Candles

This is an ancient and natural therapy handed down by many civilisations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks used ear candles, initially probably for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, but much later on a purely physical basis. However, the practice reached the modern world via the native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona (it's interesting to note that Hopi means peaceful people). Ear candles were used traditionally by Shamen healers. Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.

How do Hopi Ear Candles work?

The candles are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, sage, St Johns Wort, chamomile, beta-carotene and organically grown flax. A constant high quality is ensured. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions. Secretion flow is gently stimulated and the vapour collects and removes impurities or deposits. Most of these are carried away through the candle "chimney", although some of them can be found in the condensed candle wax residue after removal from the ear, or could even work their way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

Are there any side effects?                   

No contra-indications are known to date, but as a precaution it is advisable not to use Hopi Ear Candles:

  • If grommets are in place
  • If there is inflammation or infection
  • In the event of an allergic reaction to the contents

However most people find the treatment relaxing and regularly describe a "relieved feeling" in the ears and head, and a relaxed and calming effect on the whole system.

Where long-term conditions are being treated, the client sometimes experiences slight headaches and occasional popping shortly after the treatment.

Ear candles are also available to buy, with full instructions for home use.
