Hopi ear candles are made from and also contain natural tincture extracted herbal ingredients which include Beeswax, Flax, and Honey, Sage, Chamomile and some essential aroma essences. The candles are made with a plug / filter inside which prevents any residue from going into the ear. Thermo-Auricular ear candling treatment is a natural non-invasive and works by drawing out the wax rather than compacting it in further. It is a holistic treatment, so it is not designed to be a specific cure for any particular specific ailment. However, there are considered to be a number of healing benefits and regular treatment is thought to stimulate and heal parts of the mind and body that extend beyond the immediate surroundings of the inner ear. The body has a natural process of cleansing and protecting the inner ear from perceived foreign objects such as small pieces of hair, dust etc., and protection is mostly ensured by the excretion of wax. The more items that fall into the ear the more wax the ear produces, and the wax is naturally expected to migrate out of the ear, but sometimes using cotton wool buds in ears often push the wax further down the canal compacting it, thus leading to hearing problems.


Ear candling potentially is more effective for relieving wax build, compacted ear wax, irritations and pressure in the ear, while cleansing the sinus cavities of bacteria that thrive in the dark moist conditions of the inner ear to help restore hearing, relieve:

  • Sinus Problems; Tinnitus; Rhinitis; Insomnia; General fatigue; Jet -Leg,
  • Blockages resulting from swimming, diving, surfing and air travel
  • Excess Ear Wax; Tension Headaches; Migraine; Stress & Anxiety


The candles work on a chimney principle – (a mild suction action occurs and excess wax and impurities can sometimes be gently drawn out of the ear), and as the candle burns down, the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum whilst the client hears the pleasant tiny vibrations of crackling noises of the flame. The heat and candle ingredients work to cleanse the ear and regulate pressure within the inner ear, forehead and sinuses. Heat vaporises the ingredients and draws them down the ‘chimney’ into the outer ear. The warm vapours massage/vibrate the ear drum and auditory canal which helps to regulate pressure systems within the head, including the sinuses. The warmth and herbs also assists in balancing the fluids and pressure in the ear which can help reduce pain, headaches and nausea arising from imbalances. The aroma of the ingredients is also inhaled into the sinus area which is both relaxing and clearing prompting a feeling of tranquillity, composure, comfort, as well as inducing pain -relief and release to help reduce headaches and migraines or earache from flying or diving. The treatment is very relaxing and takes about 50 to 60 minutes and the treatment will continue to work for 48 hours and wax may also continue to rise to the surface for up to 48 hours.

A client may experience a reaction when the body begins the process of healing itself and eliminating toxins, and these reactions might be a good sign that the body is responding well to the ear candling treatment and is undergoing the boosted healing process, and these reactions could subside in 12-24 hours.

In addition, some of the reactions may also occur after treatment:

  • Client might make more visits to the toilet to get rid of waste and toxins
  • Might experience light headedness due to sinus pressure change,increased circulation and elimination of toxins, and might also feel Catarrh in the throat as the sinuses clear.
