HOPI EAR CANDELING
Hopi ear candles are made using a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils. Hopi ear candles act like a chimney, forming a vacuum that draws up and away impurities from within the ear though the effects of the heat rising. This in turn regulates the pressure system within the ear and the head, making the candle treatment suitable for many conditions.
The hollow ‘candle’ is gently placed in the ear and the part furthest from the ear is lit, the burning action of the Hopi ear candle infuses the herbs and essential oils into a vapour, which is drawn into the auditory canal. This performs a massaging function as well as softening and drawing out any impurities.

What Happens During a Session?
Zoe will guide you to lye on your side, then place a candle in the ear and light the end furthest away.
The candle will be lit and Zoe will gently massage the area around your ears, neck and sinus to encourage the canals to clear and promote your relaxation.
The candles do not leave wax and it is never painful.
Many people report a state of enhanced mental, physical and emotional relaxation during the treatment.
