The original use of ear candles was for aura and spiritual cleansing for purifying. They were used to cleanse and harmonize the different energy fields of the body. Equally they were also used in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies.
Quite different from conventional wax candles, a Hopi Ear Candle is actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils, that is painlessly inserted into the ear to draw out impurities and relieve pressure in the head and sinuses.
It is often used by people with:
- Glue ear
- Hay fever and rhinitis
- Excessive ear wax
- Tension headaches
