How Hopi Ear Candles work
The patient simply lies on their side and relaxes as a lit hopi candle is placed in their ear. When lit, the ear candles have a slight sucking action often referred to as the chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. The rising air inside the ear sets up a vibration which gently massages the eardrum. This can help to regulate the pressures involved inside the ear. The flow of air within the ear candle creates a circulation of concentrated vapour. This is soothing, calming and protects the irritated areas. Most impurities or deposits are carried away through the candle "chimney", although some of them can be found in the lower section of the candle after removal from the ear, or some wax could even work its way up to the surface 24-48 hours after.

ï¿½How Hopi Ear Candles are used
You are usually asked to lie comfortably and to relax. The hopi ear candle is then gently placed into the auditory canal, where it is lit and held in a vertical position. The therapists hands keep the candle steady. You will then experience a pleasant crackling sound and a warm comfortable feeling as the candle burns. The candle is allowed to burn down until it reaches a specific marker indicated on its side and then it is taken away while you lie there for a few moments. The process is then repeated on the other ear.
