Hopi Ear Candle - Thermal Auricular Therapy£130
The candles are unlike conventional wax candles but are made from the natural ingredients of beeswax, honey extracts, therapeutic oils, chamomile, and organically grown flax. A constant high quality is ensured. The candles work on a chimney principle, drawing any impurities to the surface where they can be gently removed. A filter prevents any debris from the candle entering the ear. They equalise the pressure in the head and ears, making them suitable for most conditions.
