Hopi Ear Candling

This ancient therapy derives from the Ancient Greeks, Romans and Aborigines, and was reintroduced to the modern world by the Native American Hopi Indian Tribe.

Hopi means ‘peaceful people’. The Hopi’s were the first settled Pueblo Indians of North America. For many centuries they lived in peace with earth and nature, understanding and abiding by the universal laws. The Hopi people are extensively known for their healing and spiritual lifestyle. Ear candles were traditionally used by Shaman healers. They were named after the Native Americans who brought them to Europe.

This Holistic Therapy involves inserting what are known as ‘Hopi Ear Candles’ into the outer ear canal. This ‘candle’ is then lit at the opposite end and is allowed to burn down, this is followed by a neck and facial massage which helps to enhance the treatment.

Ear candles are are not candles at all, they are hollow, made from cotton flax, stiffened with beeswax and infused with therapeutic herbs and oils. Star Treatment only use Biosun ear candles which are the only ones to have a medical device classification which is a much higher level of safety standard to obtain. They have a magical scent of honey, sage and camomile.
