Our ancestors left an incredible legacy of healing knowledge and many of their practices have been rediscovered for use in the modern world; one such healing tool is the ancient art of Ear Candling.
This gentle yet effective therapy can encourage relaxation and some clients also find it helpful in relieving a number of common issues that can affect the ears nose and throat.
An ear candling treatment requires a pair of specialised ‘candles’ (actually hollow tubes which have been infused with beeswax and various herbs or essential oils) to be used in the ears, followed by a massage of the face, ears, neck and scalp to enhance the effects of the ear candling. A full treatment takes approximately 45 minutes or ear candling alone can be combined with any other treatment.
I like to use Naturhelix organic ear candles which are made from 100% certified beeswax and cotton. Important features are incorporated to provide safe, effective, comfortable treatments, including a gauze filter (preventing candle residue dropping into the ears), a marker line indicating the safe burning level, a flame-proof protective disc and clear user instructions. Conical in shape, candle size is approximately 23cm and the burning time is around 10 minutes for each ear.
