Hopi Ear Candles

hopi ear candles

The magic of fire has fascinated people from the very beginning of time, and Ear candles evoke a similar fascination, having been used by many cultures since ancient times. The peoples of the Siberian prairies, Asia and native North and South American Indians mention Ear candles in their myths, with ancient rock paintings showing ear candles being used at initiation rituals and medicinal ceremonies.

The Hopi, the oldest Pueblo people, who possess great medicinal knowledge and spirituality, brought this knowledge to Europe with the professional involvement of BioSun. BioSun have been researching the use of ear candles since 1985, with many people worldwide benefiting from the healing effects of ear candling.

BioSun have over 20 years of ear candling experience, with only high quality materials used and safety standards which are regularly tested by independent institutes.


Ear candles have physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create 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. It is soothing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. These benefits have been well known through 19 years of experience and confirmed by thousands of doctors worldwide.

This physical effect is often described directly after the treatment as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area. The treatment may also spontaneously cause freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell, even when the nose was blocked before treatment.

The way in which the hopi ear candles work to remove ear wax or mucus in the sinuses is through the sound frequency vibration. The sound of the flame creates a vibration that travels through the ear candle penetrating the eardrum which in turn vibrates the inner ear bones at such a frequency it is like an inner ear massage. This then pushes further into the eustachian tubes and the sinuses helping to push out any blocked pressure.

The heat from the ear candle and the vibration help to soften and break up any ear wax or mucus that is blocking the head and ears, and once broken down the body finds it easier to flush the waste through the lymphatic system. This treatment is therefore detoxifying, and is still working in the body upto 48 hours after the treatment. There is also the added benefit of the herbal essences within the ear candle transferring through the skin and into the blood stream helping to relax and calm you.

Furthermore, the whole ceremony brings a wonderful relaxation, a deep sense of security and a feeling of happiness, which is seldom experienced in the world we live in today.
