Hopi Ear Candles

This Native American relaxation ceremony calms the mind and soothes the head. The magic of fire has fascinated people from the beginning of time and ear candles have a similar fascination. They have been used by many cultures as an effective natural therapy since ancient times, with rock paintings showing the use of ear candles at initiation rituals and medical ceremonies. The Hopi, the oldest Pueblo people with great medicinal knowledge and a high degree of spirituality brought this knowledge to Europe with the professional involvement of a company called Biosun. hopi mural

This is a relaxing and soothing treatment, which induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. Ear candles have a purely physical function. A gentle suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame create a vibration of air in the candle, generating a massage like effect of the eardrum.
At Alqualonde Holistics we use what we believe to be the best ear candles available, as the original Biosun Ear candles are still made today using the traditional recipe and finest ingredients. The benefits of using the Biosun original Hopi ear candles have been well known over 19 years of experience and confirmed by doctors worldwide. Directly after the treatment the physical effect is often described as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear and head area. Treatment may also spontaneously improve nasal breathing and sense of smell, even if the nose was blocked before treatment.

The ear candles are approximately 22cm long and can burn for between 10 and 12 minutes. Both ears are treated, one after the other, each with a new ear candle.
