Hopi Ear Candles
Safe, gentle relief from ear and sinus problems
Biosun hopi ear candles are made by hand using a traditional recipe and the finest ingredients, such as pure beeswax, honey extract and traditional herbs like Sage, St John's wort, Camomile and pure essential oils.
Approximately 22 cm (8¾ ins) long, they make use of a small filter embedded within the body of the candle which acts as a safety feature.
Biosun ear candles have an established reputation and benefit from over 15 years of hopi candle production experience, following high quality and safety standards, making them extremely popular for earcandling.
To help such problems as:
- Irritations to the ear, frontal and paranasal sinuses
- Rhinitis, sinusitis, migraine and most cases relating to pressure and regulation.
- Activation of blood flow, the metabolic process and lymphatic system
- Energetically compensative local and reflex stimulation of the circulatory energy flow
- Relaxant calming in cases of excessive excitement and stress symptoms
- Noises in the ears (ringing)
Biosun hopi ear candles
These are the original 'Biosun' Hopi Ear Candles. Use them as a gentle treatment for ear problems, aches, infection and wax build up; they are safe and very effective - a guaranteed natural product with full and clear instructions on how to use.
North American Indians and the ancient Egyptian, the oriental Chinese, even Tibetan, as well as Mayan and Aztec, ear candling is performed by Cherokee, Mexican, European and Amish healers (German medical students are taught coning as a part of their medical practice). Many people consider ear candling as necessary a part of personal hygiene as is tooth brushing.
Ear candles are to be considered a classic clearance therapy and can be used successfully for many problems by a completely painless method of local heat application. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement generating massage-like effect on the eardrum.This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. These benefits have been well known through the ages and confirmed by doctors worldwide.
Hopi Ear Candles have traditionally used for the treatment of:
- Build up of Ear Wax
- Glue Ear
- Colds and Flu
- Alternative to Ear Syringing
- Help with Stress
Do not use if pregnant.
For safety reasons BIOSUN do not recommend that you carry out the treatment by yourself.
Do please beware of possible fire hazard!
Do you suffer from chronic or acute diseases?
Do you feel earcandling may not suit you?
If so you should by all means consult a therapist of your confidence for further advice.
In the presence of a perforated eardrum or tympanostomy tube implants (grommets) BIOSUN strictly DO NOT recommend the use of Earcandles.
The same applies to all kinds of inflammation or infection of the ear or skin diseases in and around the ear.
Very rarely allergic reactions to the ingredients are reported: this takes the form of spontaneous itchiness and can be relieved with suitable eardrops.
The application of Earcandles is at your own risk and responsibility. If you follow the instructions carefully, the application will be simple and safe.
One pack contains 1 pair of ear candles.
Ear Candle Treatment Thermotherapy for the Head
and Revitalising Heat for Head and Ears
SOOTHES - RELIEVES - RELAXES
Ear candle treatment is a safe, simple home remedy for relieving pressure, fighting infection, and gently removing toxins and excess wax from inside the ears. Long, tapered candles are inserted into the ears and lit. Warm, dry, powdery smoke from the candle draws out excess fluids, wax and toxic debris by osmosis. At the same time, vaporised beeswax and herbal essences in the smoke infuse their natural infection-fighting properties into the inner ear, sinuses and lymph drainage system. The entire process is relaxing and non-invasive.
Both ears on principle should always treated one after the other. We generally recommend 1 treatment daily for up to 7 days in acute cases, 1-2 times a week for chronic indications, and 1 treatment regularly every 3-4 weeks for preventative or for revitalising indications. No contra-indications are known to date, but as a precautionary measure we advise against using the candle if the eardrum is perforated or in the event of an allergic reaction to the contents.
The candles are easy to use. Ensure that the atmosphere is calm and relaxed, so that the EARcandle can display its full effect. The patient can contribute here by keeping his eyes closed. Before the therapy is started, ensure that there are no draughts in the room. Place a glass of water within easy reach, so that the remainder of the EARcandle can be extinguished after it has been burned down.
Please take precise note of the following instructions and their sequence:
Lie the patient down on his/her side in a comfortable position. Support the head slightly so that the auditory canal is in the vertical position. It is best to sit on a chair by the patient's head. Now light an EARcandle at the plain end.
Fit the lit EARcandle (not the burning end of course!) gently but tightly into the auditory canal with a gently twisting movement. If the candle fits properly, no mist concentrate should issue from between the EARcandle and the ear.
Hold the EARcandle loosely between the thumb and fore finger during the therapy. Do not squeeze tightly together! Keep as vertical as possible! The patient will experience a pleasant crackling and rustling noise during the burning. In the final phase, the heat flow intensifies comfortingly and pleasantly. Do not worry: the linen fabric has already burned does not fall during the burning process. As a precaution, however, the surrounding region of the head can be covered with a cloth.
Leave the EARcandle in place until it has burned down to 70mm. NO FURTHER! Carefully remove the remainder of the EARcandle and extinguish it in the glass of water kept ready.
Subsequent rest -
After both ears have been treated in succession, we recommend a subsequent rest of 10-15 minutes: this assists the overall effect extremely positively. The patient should be lying down in the warm. Cover him/her if necessary.
Check the external auditory canal for any condensate residues. Remove these carefully with an ear cleaner or small wooden stick. Do not push them back into the ear. Do not use cotton-wool tip.
Intensify the achieved energy circulation by massaging around the ear with a suitable cell-flow moisturising into the lymphatic tracts of the neck, the area below the ears and both ear shells, from the inside and the outside.
Foot Reflexology points related to the ears can also be included, together with sinus points for extra clearance and relaxation at the North Devon Natural Health Centre.
An EARcandle therapy at the North Devon Natural Health Centre is £15.00 per session.
