HOPI EAR CANDLE

Hopi Ear Candles soothe the head and ears and calm the mind. They have been used by many cultures as an effective natural therapy since ancient times. The Hopi Ear candles are cylindrical with a hollow centre and no wick inside. Once lit, a light suction action ( chimmney effect) and the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses.
