ACandle in My Ear!


No, not a typo on an Elton John song…I have been intrigued by something called Ear Candling, or Hopi Ear Candles so went to see a friendly therapist to find out what it is all about.


It is not a nor-


mal candle of course, but a cylinder of bees wax on lint which con- tains herbal, essential oil and tincture extracted ingredients includ- ing honey, sage, camomile, St John’s wort and beta carotine. Lying on your side the therapist gently inserts the lit candle into your ear. A suction action is created and you hear a slight crackling or whooshing sound. It was very soothing, and all other sound was blocked out. The therapist holds the candle with a hand to your


head at all times and I found this relaxing and comforting.


The treatment is used for the build up of excessive ear wax and associated problems. As it stimulates the ear, nose and throat, it also relieves the sinuses over a few treatments, and can help with headaches and migraines. Personally I found the treatment to be relaxing and sooth- ing and I felt in good and able hands with Rosemary, my therapist. I decided on the treatment more out of curiosity than anything else, but certainly enjoyed the experience and the relaxed in the therapy room filled with delicious aromas of essential oils. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour and I emerged very relaxed.
