Hopi Ear Candles

 Thermo Auricular Therapy is more commonly known as Hopi Ear Candles. It has an long and interesting background and is believed to have been used by the Ancient Greeks. They used it on a spiritual basis for cleansing, purifying and healing. But it was also found to have an actual physical benefit, helping to cleanse the ear canal, removing excessive or compacted wax. It can also help with Tinnitus, sinusitis, rhinitis, glue ear, snoring, and has been found to relieve discomfort felt during air travel.
The practice reached the modern world via the native American Hopi Indians of North Arizona. Hopi actually means peaceful people. Ear candles were used traditionally by Shamen healers. Ancient wall paintings show their importance in initiation rituals and healing ceremonies of the tribe. The candles are still made today on the basis of the old traditional formula originating from the Hopi Indians.
