Hopi Ear Candle Gift Voucher
The process involves placing a specially designed hollow candle just inside the ear canal, as far as is comfortable into the ear canal. Now known as Hopi Ear Candles, the hand-made structures are hollow tubes which contain honey, sage, St Johns Wort and camomile.
- Chamomile – anti-inflammatory and gentle anti-spasmodic sedative
- Sage - stimulates the lymph, increases circulation
- St. John’s Wort - restorative tonic for the nervous system
The candle is then lit and the resulting gentle suction and vacuum draws the wax and impurities from the ear and produces a light suction action. This vacuum is caused by the warmed air from the flame and colder air moving through its hollow centre. The movement and compression between the ear canal and the candle chamber generate air flow acting like a chimney. The burning action infuses the herbs and essential oils into a vapour, which is drawn into the auditory canal. This performs a massaging function as well as softening any impurities.
