Experience new wellbeing
You can use Earcandles in the health, wellness and beauty sector or at home. BIOSUN has the perfect solution to suit your needs. Always in line with the trend "holistic wellbeing".
Earcandles in the health sector
BIOSUN Earcandles have been used as an accompanying treatment for certain symptoms in naturopathy for over 25 years. BIOSUN Earcandles are an officially accredited class IIa medical device in line with the European Medical Device Directive.
Our Earcandles are successfully used by natural health practitioners, alternative healers, physiotherapists, midwives, health centres and many other specialists from the health sector. And their area of application is forever increasing. New ways of using them to treat modern illnesses are constantly being found.
Numerous case histories, studies and other clinical trials document the positive effect of Earcandles.
Earcandling in the wellness sector
Earcandling is based on a century-old Indian tradition of Earcandles, and combines this tradition with modern approaches from aromatherapy and music therapy. Whilst Earcandles were originally used mainly as a traditional natural remedy and during spiritual rites, today Earcandling utilises the deep relaxing effect of the treatment.
In the wellness sector, Earcandling can be offered as a holistic spa treatment for deep relaxation, and can also be easily integrated into all existing spa treatments.
More and more wellness hotels, spas, saunas and baths are picking up on this new trend and are offering their customers a unique wellness experience with BIOSUN Earcandles
Earcandling in the beauty sector
As in the wellness sector, Earcandling utilises the deep relaxing effect of the treatment with BIOSUN Earcandles, complementary aromas and specially selected music.
This trend is becoming more and more popular in cosmetic institutes, beauty farms, nail studios, hair salons and foot care studios. Either in combination with existing treatments, for example facials, or as an independent treatment to achieve deep relaxation. You can let your fantasies loose here.
Earcandling at home
A sensual aroma spreads through the room, while relaxing music plays in the background. A quiet crackling in the ear and a pleasant heat ensure a deep and thorough relaxation. Feeling, smelling and listening combine during the treatment to create a triad of the senses, and lead to a new dimension of experience.
Earcandling is based on a century-old Indian tradition of Earcandles, and combines this tradition with modern approaches from aromatherapy and music therapy. This ritual uses simple and natural methods to create a holistic relaxation for the body, mind and soul.
Earcandling offers a special wellness experience for the home, which is especially suited to those in need of relaxation and without the time to visit a day spa or to stay in a spa hotel.
The composition of Earcandles
The BIOSUN Ear Candle comprises a rolled piece of unbleached cotton, which is brushed with high quality honey extracts and divine Aroma Essences.
The lower end of the roughly 22-cm-long ear candle features the BIOSUN logo and a coloured marking. The inscribed end shows which end of the candle should be placed in the ear canal, whilst the coloured burn out marking provides a guide as to when the ear candle treatment has come to an end.
Inside the ear candle there is a patented safety filter, which prevents combustion residues, so-called condensate and, in some cases, unburned wax, from entering the ear canal. BIOSUN Earcandles are lovingly made by hand from the best natural ingredients, such as cotton, beeswax, honey extracts and essential Aroma essences, which are regularly inspected.
The Earcandles mode of action
The Earcandles have a purely physical effect. A light underpressure (stack effect) and the vibration waves of the air in the candle, which are caused by the movement of the flame, create a gentle massage for the ear drum.
A cross-section of the ear
This leads to an intensive feeling of pleasant warmth and a "liberating" balancing of pressure in the ear, forehead and sinuses.
Directly after the treatment, this physical effect is often described subjectively as a feel-good, pressure and pain-soothing sensation, mainly in the area around the ear and in the head. It can also lead to a clearing of the nasal passages and to an improved sense of smell, especially where people had a blocked nose before the treatment.
In addition, the whole ceremony leads to a wonderful sense of relaxation. A deep feeling of security and happiness, which is rare to find!
The history of Earcandles
BIOSUN has been producing innovative products for the natural healing sector since 1983. From these roots a company has developed, which today enjoys success with its own solutions in the national and international health and wellness sectors.
The ear candle, which has been used as a natural remedy in various cultures since time immemorial, is one of these excellent products. Historical roots can be found in the steppe peoples of Siberia, in the Asian region and in the Indians of North and South America.
In an article from "Today's Therapist Magazine" the correlations between the Hopi Indians and the Biosun Earcandles were questioned. We would like to take this opportunity to report on the scrupulous research undertaken by Biosun.
In order to confirm the authenticity and the historical credibility through original knowledge, Biosun has also researched the Pueblo Indians of North America, and in particular the Hopi Indians.
Back in 1985 we were the first company to begin developing the natural healing treatment of the ear candle on a professional basis and to spread the word of the treatment across the world. Between 1992 and 1993 and with the help of the famous author and expert on the traditional Hopi Indians, Alexander Buschenreiter, we succeeded in not just making contact with the traditional Hopis, but also in travelling together and collecting inimitable first-hand knowledge.
In a fax to BIOSUN from 18th December 1992, the author Mr. Buschenreiter reported in a letter to Biosun of a telephone conversation between himself and the spokesperson for the traditional Hopi, Thomas Banyacya Sr. He told Mr. Buschenreiter that the ear candle is known to the Hopi fire clan. "...it is predominantly used by the highest echelons in ceremonies. This is because they deal with the acting spirit of the fire. It is in every living thing and represents the connection to the greatest secret. This means that the traditional Hopi have used the ear candle well beyond its allegeable scientific functioning, because they know its deep spiritual significance and effect...".
In 1993, Alexander Buschenreiter and Udo Leschik, the founder of Biosun, succeeded in meeting the elder of the Hopi. Thomas Banyacya Sr., the spokesperson for the traditional Hopi, who has also presented the legitimate concerns of his people to the UN, established contact to Martin Gashweseoma, a traditional elder of the Hopi and custodian of the holy stone tablet of the fire clan. Martin Gashweseoma confirmed the use of this ceremony by the fire clan and introduced Udo Leschik to the traditional inauguration rituals using the rock paintings, which can be seen in the Hopi Tower, North Rim, Grand Canyon. The images that we were given permission to publish are also clear in what they show.
The Hopi did not use the name ear candle; this ritual is, however, known in many places, including in the southern states of the United States of America as "Ear Coning".
The BIOSUN Earcandles are produced from cotton and not from leaves, as was previously the case with the Hopi. The traditional Indian herbal mixture of sage, St. John's wort and camomile is still used to this day. Despite this adjustment to meet today's production requirements, BIOSUN Earcandles remain an authentic product from this cultural circle.
The traditional knowledge of the Hopi is, in line with all Shaman customs, only passed on through the spoken language. Many descendants no longer speak the language of the Hopi and with the death of each traditional Hopi elder, a part of this deeply impressive culture and its irretrievable knowledge is lost. Thus it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain reliable information on the subject. It is, therefore, not surprising, although it is regrettable, that Hopi Indians who do not belong to the traditional groups, no longer have any knowledge of the secret ceremonial customs of certain clans.
Thomas Banyacya Sr., whom we remember with great gratitude, died in 1999. One more reason not to forget the knowledge of this traditional ceremony and to continue to make it known throughout the world.
We are certain that this background report, the history of Biosun Earcandles and our company philosophy have been able to give you a greater insight into how all of our products have an authentic origin that has been reviewed and researched.
Thank you for your taking the time to read this information. Best wishes
