hopiHopi Ear Candling

BIOSUN ear candles have their origins in the centuries-old culture of the Hopi Indians and other primitive peoples. The purely physical effect of the ear candles leads to soothing relaxation.  Biosun lovingly make their ear candles by hand for you, using only regularly tested, 100% natural raw materials such as cotton, beeswax, honey extract and Indian herbs such as sage, St. John’s Wort and Chamomile.

The ear candles have a purely physical effect. A light suction action (chimney effect) and those caused by the movement of the flame of a vibration of air in the candle act like a gentle massage the eardrum. This leads to an intense feeling of pleasant warmth and a “liberating” perceived pressure balance in the ears, forehead & sinuses. This physical effect is often subjective, directly after the application as a soothing, pressure and pain relieving sensation, mainly in the ear-head area described. Spontaneously, it can also lead to a freer nasal breathing and an improved sense of smell, even in previously blocked nose.
