Origins of Ear Candling

Ear Candles have been used for many centuries by cultures as diverse as Egyptians, Romans and Greeks, as well as native Americans.

They were used in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies, for aura and spiritual cleansing and harmonising energy fields, as well as being used to treat a variety of health problems.

What is an Ear Candle

An Ear Candle is not like normal wax candles and the production process is complex. Ear Candles are hollow tubes made of cotton flax, stiffened by adding, extract of honey and herb oils. Chamomile, Sage and St. Johns Wort have all  been recognised for their healing properties for hundreds of years.

Ear Candling is both gentle and relaxing

  • The Candle is inserted just inside the ear on the side you lie. The opposite end, away from you, is then lit.
  • The slow burning candle burns stops automatically within 4 inches (10cm) of the ear.
  • A gentle local heat is produced, as it burns.
  • This warmth, combined with the natural oils and
    herbs, softens and drains the wax to the base of the candle.
  • As air is drawn, the eardrum feels gently massaged.
  • Once the candle is removed the therapist massages the outer ear and surrounds.
  • This is then repeated on the other ear.
  • Treatment ends with a face massage, paying particular attention to the sinus area.
