A candle is placed gently into the ear and ignited. It is only allowed to burn to within 4 inches of the end of the candle before it is removed and the treatment is repeated with a new candle on the other ear. A light facial massage is then carried out, incorporating lymph drainage and pressure points, paying particular attention to the sinus areas. After your treatment you will be encouraged to drink some water.
At Rolls Mill we use Biosun Hopi ear candles which create a wonderful and relaxing therapy that may help many ear, nose, throat, sinus and head conditions.
Made of unbleached cotton, bees wax, honey extract and herbs such as sage, St. John’s wort and camomile, Biosun ear candles are guaranteed herbicide and pesticide free.
Treatment is not advised if grommets are in place, if the eardrum is currently perforated, if an ear is infection is present or if there is sensitivity to the candle ingredients (see above).
