Experiencing neck stiffness, ear wax, insomnia, headaches etc?
Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows the benefits of Karnapoorna which is one of the many therapies in Ayurveda that is done with oil. It means, putting oil in your ears! Now, not only is it a therapy, but it’s also used as preventative medicine. You can do karnapoorna as needed or once a week as part of your routine to stay healthy. Karnapoorna is best for vata imbalances including:
• Ringing in the ears
• Anxiety or worry
• Jet-lag and ears popping/crackling in airplanes
Other benefits are:
• Improves hearing
• Loosens ear wax (who doesn’t want that?!)
• Strengthens the bones in the ear
• Prevents neck stiffness
Intrigued yet? Give it a try. It might tickle at first, but stick with it for about 30 seconds, then you should feel calm and happy.
***Do not do karnapoorna after a shower or swimming. Oil and water do not mix and it could do bad things.
Here’s what to do:
Just before bedtime…
Warm some sesame oil and put in shallow bowl
Use a cotton ball to soak up the oil
Lay on one side and squeeze the oil out of the cotton ball into your ear (it will tickle)
Massage your ear lobe and bones gently for a couple minutes
Lay for 20 minutes (even 10 minutes does some good), bonus points if you so hum
Put a towel over your ear, tilt your head so the oil drizzles out
Repeat other side
Aaaannnnd, goodnight You will probably want to sleep.
