What are Ear Seeds? Traditionally, ear seeds have been made by placing the tiny seed of the vaccaria plant on a small piece of adhesive bandage that then gets stuck onto one or more of the many acupressure points on the ear to help alleviate many symptoms. More recently, ear seeds are also made from small pellets of stainless steel, gold or silver, and there are options of latex or non-latex types of adhesive material that they are placed on. The ear has many acupressure points on it which form a microsystem of the whole body. Ear seeds are a non-invasive way to stimulate the points on this microsystem to produce helpful effects, such as helping to alleviate pain in different parts of the body, regulate hormones, reduce stress and anxiety and many other things.
During this time of stay-at-home orders, quarantine, and reduced travel and social interaction, you may like to try using ear seeds at home. The company earseeds.com has some wonderful kits available that can help a wide variety of issues including: Acne/Skincare, Addiction, Allergies, Back Pain/Sciatica, Cough, Digestive Support, Depression, Fertility, Focus & Memory, Headaches/Migraines, Hemmorhoids, Inflammation & Immunity, Libido, Motion Sickness, Post Trauma, Sleep/Insomnia, Stop Smoking, Stress & Anxiety, Weight Loss, and Women’s Health issues such as Menopause, Postpartum, and PMS. Each of the kits comes with about a month’s supply of ear seeds, tweezers to help you grasp and place the adhesive squares with the seeds on your ear, as well as a card showing the location of points helpful to the condition you may have and explaining what they do to help.
