History of the candle
It is thought to be an Ancient Greek therapy, designed for cleansing and purification. It was through these methods that the treatment came to North America by way of the Hopi Indians. Today, healers use this old folklore remedy in a variety of settings and locations based on the way that the Hopi Indians treated.
How the candles work
Most of the Hopi candles are made from the same ingredients; sage, chamomile, beeswax, honey, beta-carotene, St. John’s wort and flax. These candles work on the thought that they draw out impurities and toxins gently by equalising the pressure as well as stimulating secretions. These deposits can either be found in the candle’s chimney section, in the condensed wax residue, or is worked up a day or two after the treatments.
Treatment and side efects
This works on those who have an impacted amount of ear wax or those who have ear aches. Those who just want a form of stress relief can also get the treatment. There are some contradictions, when it’s not good to use ear candling. These are if there is an allergy present to any of the ingredients, if there is an infection, if there is inflammation, or if there are grommets in place. There are those that may have ear popping or slight headaches with the treatment.
Hopi candle sessions
The treatment is typically given while lying down in a comfortable position. There may be soft music playing. The ear candle is put into the canal and held in a vertical hold. There will be a warm feeling and a crackling sound. Ash will fall as it burns. The ear wax candle is removed and the other ear is treated. Many people feel that it is a very relaxing environment and experience. These natural candles help to make sure that there are no preservatives and added chemicals which could add to any irritation.
