Hopi Ear Candling Wheatley
Hopi Ear Candle Treatment


Hopi ear candling is believed to originate from medical ceremonies performed by a Native American Indian tribe known as the Hopis or Peace People. The candle is actually a cotton tube, impregnated with beeswax, honey and therapeutic oils. Hopi ear candles act like a chimney, drawing away the vapour and any impurities from within the ear. 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. Hopi ear candles have been used for centuries throughout North America and Asia to treat ear problems and had been known to the Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks.
