Frequently Asked Questions
Ear candles have physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum.
"soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness”
The heat from the ear candle and the vibration help to soften and break up any ear wax or mucus that is blocking the head and ears, and once broken down the body finds it easier to flush the waste through the lymphatic system. This treatment is therefore detoxifying, and is still working in the body upto 48 hours after the treatment. There is also the added benefit of the herbal essences within the ear candle transferring through the skin and into the blood stream helping to relax and calm you.

Please note: Ear candles do not draw hard and compact ear wax up and into the ear candle. The way in which the hopi ear candles work to remove ear wax or mucus in the sinuses is through the sound frequency vibration. The sound of the flame creates a vibration that travels through the ear candle penetrating the eardrum which in turn vibrates the inner ear bones at such a frequency it is like an inner ear massage. This then pushes further into the eustachian tubes and the sinuses helping to push out any blocked pressure.
