Applying ear seeds is a simple process. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to apply ear seeds:
What You'll Need:
- Ear seeds
- Cotton ball and facial toner or alcohol swab (for cleaning the ear)
- Free standing mirror
Clean the Ear: Start by cleaning the ear's surface where you'll be applying the ear seeds. You can use a cotton ball soaked in facial toner or an alcohol swab to gently wipe the area.
Locate the Points: Depending on the purpose of the ear seeds (e.g., period pain relief, stress reduction, fatigue), you'll need to identify the specific points on the ear that correspond to your intended benefit. You can find the ear maps in our wellness guide in our ear seed kit, or women's health guide.
Apply the Seeds: Carefully peel the adhesive sticker off the strip of ear seeds, using tweezers. Place the seed on the identified point on the ear. Press it gently to ensure it sticks.
Massage the Seeds: After applying the ear seed, give it a gentle massage by pressing and rotating it a few times. This stimulates the point and enhances its potential benefits.
Leave in Place: Ear seeds are typically left in place for up to 5 days. You can shower, swim, sleep and exercise with your ear seeds on.
Removal: When it's time to remove the ear seeds, gently peel them off using nails or tweezers.
