Hopi Ear Candling

Ear candles are a natural therapy which dates back to ancient times.


The treatment is gentle and non-invasive.  Lots of people resort to syringing for the build up of excessive ear wax which can be harmful or encourage the body to produce even more ear wax.   Removing the ear wax completely can encourage infection.

Ear candling can help:

Excessive of compacted ear wax



Glue ear

Allergic rhinitis


Headaches & migraines

Noises in the ear and tinnitus


Swimmer's ear

Loss of smell, and many more

There is also an aromatherapy benefit as the candles are made of natural ingredients which help heal and soothe.

It is advisable not to use the ear candles if:

The ear drum is perforated

Grommets or other drainage devices are in place in the ear drum

The outer ear is inflamed

If on a course of antibiotics

If severe dental work has been carried out recently

In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy

If a cochlear implant has been fitted

I use Biosun ear candles which contain only natural ingredients (except in the filter).  The ingredients are:

100% pure beeswax

Honey extracts


St John's Wort


Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A)

Pesticide free woven cotton

What you can expect during the treatment:

The candle is lit and the ingredients vaporise and are drawn down the hollow centre of the candle into the outer portion of the ear by a long established 'chimney' principle.

The heat of the vapours travel inside the ear gently massaging the ear drum.  This action helps to regulate the pressure systems within the head, including the sinuses.
