Hopi Ear Candles

Hopi Ear Candles are an ancient, mild and natural therapy that have

been used by the Native American Indian for many years. The Hopi

ear candle is not a candle as such, but a hollow tube made out of

cotton flax. To stiffen the flax, they are impregnated with extract of

honey and herb oils (in particular chamomile, sage and St Johns wort,

the healing properties that have been known to the Hopi tribe for

hundreds of years. The making of the candles is a complex process

and all genuine Hopi candles are made in the  traditional manner.

The Treatment

The treatment is very gentle and relaxing and may take up to an hour, depending on the condition being treated.


The Hopi Ear Candle is placed over the ear orifice and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle. As it burns it produces a gentle local heat. The warm air combined with the oil and herbs soften the wax and draw it into the base of the candle. The candle is then removed and the ear and surrounding area is then massaged. The treatment is repeated on the other ear and then a complete facial massage is carried out, paying particular attention to the sinus areas.

What Conditions Can Hopi Ear Candles Help?

Hopi Ear Candles can help with the treatment of

sinusitis, rhinitis, earwax, earache and irritation

of the ears including tinnitus. It is also suitable

eardrums, where grommets are in place or those

who may have an allergy to the ingredients. It is a

the candle takes to burn down. Each treatment

takes approximately 45 - 60 minutes and is very

relaxing. It is advisable to put a few drops of warm olive oil in each ear for three days before treatment as this will help to soften the wax which will make it easier to remove. On the day of the treatment, you will be advised to remove all makeup and earrings
