Ear candling is thought to be centuries old, and its historical roots can indeed be found in places such in Siberia, Asia, North and South America. It is believed that the ancient Greeks used ear candling for cleansing and spiritual practices and went on to use them for physical purposes in later years. Hopi ear candling is also known as Thermo Auricular Therapy and it is a completely natural therapy. The candles are in fact not candles, but long narrow hollow tubes which are made from organic flax which can contain extracts of honey, herbs and beeswax.
