What? You put it in your ear and set fire to it?

Some of you may have seen an article in the news a few week's ago about a teenager who's partial deafness cleared-up when he bent over a pool table to play a particularly tricky shot. Apparently, a cotton wool bud had been lodged in his ear for nine-years, it popped-out while playing the shot and his deafness was suddenly cured!


Some are lucky enough to be 'cured' by a tricky shot at pool, but the rest of us have to wait for more 'conventional' remedies, such as ear candles.


Ear candles are an ancient and natural therapy handed down through many civilizations. It is believed that the Ancient Greeks initially used ear candles for cleansing, purifying and healing on a spiritual basis, and later on a more physical level.


Hopi ear candles originate from a similar practice, carried out by the Hopi Indians in North Arizona, (Hopi meaning peaceful people) and the candles in use today are made according to a formulae originally used by the Hopi Indians.


Hopi ear candle treatment, or Thermo-Auricular Therapy to give it its official title, is a simple but relaxing treatment. You lie on your side and a candle is carefully placed in your ear and left to burn slowly for about 10 minutes. All you hear is the soft whisper and crackle of the burning candle as it acts like a chimney and delivers a soothing vapour of honey and herbs, such as Chamomile, Sage and St.John's Wart, to your ear, inner ear, throat and eventually your sinuses. The treatment continues with a gentle and relaxing ear massage and once one ear is finished you turn over and have the other side 'done'. After both ears have been treated, just lie back and enjoy a soothing face massage while the candle vapours work their magic! All it takes is about 40 minutes and you will feel completely relaxed at the end of the treatment.


Ear candles can be used to treat many ear, nose and throat problems, such as: earache, sinusitis, tinnitus, snoring, glue ear, excessive or compacted ear wax, headaches and migraines.


I have successfully used Hopi Ear Candles on children, adults and the elderly; often bringing rapid relief to sufferers.


Not at all like a tricky shot at pool, but helpful, nevertheless.
