The Legend: The magic of fire has fascinated people from the very beginning of time and control of this element gave light and warmth. Ear candles evoke a similar fascination and have been used by many cultures as an effective natural therapy since ancient times. Historical roots can be found among the peoples of the Siberian prairies, Asia and the native North and South American Indians. Ancient rock paintings show the use at initiation rituals and medicinal ceremonies. The Hopi, the oldest Pueblo people with great medicinal knowledge and a high degree of spirituality, brought this knowledge to Europe with the professional involvement of BIOSUN. Since 1985 BIOSUN have been researching the use of Ear candles and re-establishing their popularity.
Original BIOSUN Ear candles are still made by hand today using the traditional recipe and the finest regularly tested ingredients. Without compromise, only premium quality, pesticide-free untreated cotton is used. Slight differences in colour or length are quality features of craftsmanship and are distinctive of this natural product.
Preparation: Create a relaxed atmosphere before you start. American Indian relaxation music and essential oils are a good way to achieve this. You will experience ear candling much more intensely if you keep your eyes closed. Keep yourself warm with a blanket. Lie down on one side in a comfortable position. Support your head with a pillow so that the auditory canal is in a vertical position. The room should be draught-free, so the flame will burn smoothly. Draught in the room while it is alight can result in small, cold ash particles blowing off. In order to protect your hair and clothing, your partner can place a cover around the treatment area.
Lighting: When preparations are complete, your partner sits comfortably next to you. He/She should light the Ear candle at the unlabeled end and place the non-burning end gently into the outer ear passage. A light turning movement should be applied until the it is sealed in place. The candle is placed properly when you hear the pleasant crackling and hissing of the flame. Your partner will hold it firmly in place throughout the process. He/She will take care that no hair is within reach of the flame.
Burning down: Remember it has to be lit at the unlabelled end, opposite the safety filter and will never self extinguish! At the most, it may be burnt down to 1 cm above the red line (maximum burn) marking. Carefully remove the remainder of the Ear candle and extinguish it in the glass of water nearby.
Treat both ears: It is generally advisable to treat both ears one after the other, each with a new Ear candle. Any condensation material that remains attached to the fine ear hairs should be gently removed.
Subsequent rest: A subsequent rest of about 15 - 30 minutes will positively support the overall result. Continue to enjoy soft relaxation music and/or the smell of aromatic essences during this phase as well.
Storage: Please always store Ear candles in the airtight bag in a dry and cool place.
