Hopi Ear Candling
Hopi ear candling is referred to as “ear candling” or “ear coning”. Although its origins have roots in different cultures, the peculiar name comes from the Hopi Indian tribe of North Arizona. Prior to the Hopi Indians, ear candling was reportedly popular in Ancient Greek civilization where it was practised more for spiritual purposes than for physical benefits. Apparently, this hasn’t changed much over the centuries, ear candling is still used as a relaxation technique
How does it work?
Basically, Hopi ear candling involves inserting a cylindrical candle into the ear, which is then lit. The candle is usually made from fabric coated material with natural ingredients of beeswax, chamomile or honey extracts. At this point, the heat emanated from the candle creates a vacuum in the ear canal. The treatment is completely safe and non-invasive.
