Lucky for me, my mum is trained and certified to practise holistic therapies. It’s what she does for a living. It’s been a while since I have had my ears done, and hayfever season is starting over here in the UK, which has left me a bit bunged up for the past few weeks.
We used two candles per ear as its been so long since I last had them done. It takes about 10 minutes per candle. After about an hour I am able to breathe through both nostrils!! Normally, when I lie down on my left side, all the gunk in my nose and sinuses fall to be left side, and same for when I lie on my right. Now, I’m able to breathe through both nostrils again! Heaven!!
When my mum first started to clear my ears, I’m not gonna lie, it was weird. Having the candle in my ear used to send shivers down my spine. It took a few times for me to get used to it, but the noise you hear, is somewhat soothing. It adds to the atmosphere. Most people like the sound of a fire crackling. Imagine that, but on a smaller scale and without the burning heat. The closer the flame is to the filter, the louder the noise will be, but it’s still peaceful! Now, I fall asleep when I get my ears done! It’s so relaxing!
The heat from the flame melts and loosens the wax built up in your ear. The design of the candle means it acts as a funnel that ‘sucks’ the wax up. It can be referred to as the ‘chimney effect’. Not only does it remove wax from your ear, but it also removes any dead skin built up inside your ear relieving pressure from your ear drum. The candles help clear out your ears and sinuses, which can result in reduced headaches, earache and sinus pressure.
Whether you’re in need of a pamper, want to explore something different or want a bit of a clear out, Hopi ear candles are something you definitely need to try out. However your ears are a delicate place, so as much as I would recommend getting your ears done, please make sure you go to a trained and certified professional.
I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing evening last night!
Sending positive vibes to you all! It’s Friday at last!!
Love you all lots,
For those curious…here are the end results…
Safe to say they really cleared out my ears and sinuses…
