We are so thankful for all the positive feedback we are hearing about our kits, especially over the holidays! See for yourself why @harpersbazaarus included our Ear Seed Kits in their gift guide ‘30 Best Gifts for Friends 2020.’
While we love hearing back your feedback, we also love answering ALL and ANY questions our community might have about NAO Wellness’s Ear Seed Kits. Below you can find some of the most asked questions regarding how ear seeds work, how to apply them, what comes in the kits, and so much more. Feel free to DM us on IG if you have a question that was not answered here – we would love to chat!
What are Ear Seeds?
Ear seeds are adhesive seeds from the natural Vaccaria plant placed on specific acupressure points on the ear to address specific symptoms and areas of the physical and emotional body. This holistic treatment is called auriculotherapy.
You can read more about this holistic treatment here.
What does the kit come with?
Kit comes with either 20 or 40 seeds of your choice, tutorial on how to apply, and every healing remedy so you can easily be your own healer in 5 minutes. Scroll up to learn to place your ear seeds in 3 simple steps.
How do I know I’m applying them right?
Once the ear seeds are on and you massage them when you start to feel symptoms you will absolutely be reaching the acupressure points.
How many ear seeds should go on each ear?
Pick three to four ear seed points from the ear map and whatever points you choose for the right ear you must do to the left ear in order to achieve equilibrium.
How long can Ear Seeds be left in for?
After 3-5 days, peel the adhesive off from the ears and wash the ears thoroughly. Let the ears breathe for 2-3 days before applying new seeds.
Why are my ears sore?
If you too experience pain on your ears from the application of the seeds, please listen to your body and decide what’s right for you. If it’s too much pain, remove your seeds and let them breath for 2-3 days. As the pain in your body lessens, so will the pain in your ears – that how you’ll know it’s working!
Are there any side-effects?
Please consult your doctor before using Ear Seeds if you are pregnant.
You might feel some soreness, tenderness, or sensitivity. Listen to your body and feel free to remove the seeds if this discomfort continues. If any skin irritation, swelling, or pain occurs, remove the ear seeds immediately and contact your doctor. Never place ear seeds inside ear canal.
Can I shower with them?
Yes, continue to swim, shower, and sweat normally with your Ear Seeds. Make sure you pat dry and press down on them lightly once a day.
Do Ear Seeds puncture skin like needles do?
Ear seeds are safe, non-invasive, needle-less, and can be integrated with other treatments. You should not feel any serious pain or discomfort. If you do take off the seeds immediately.
How long until results?
We are giving you the tools for educational use only. We do not make claims to individual results if you experiment with Auriculotherapy.
In studies including proper placement, Ear Seeds have shown results in a variety of time. The number one tip we suggest would be to: listen to your body. While our kits can aid healing, there is not a one size solution.
