In traditional Chinese medicine, the ear is considered to be a microcosm of the body, with hundreds of acupressure points supporting the body and mind. Ear seeds are one way of stimulating these points. This kit comes with a map to ten commonly used acupressure points. Use the specialized tweezers to gently place the 24-karat gold-plated seeds on the ear according to your own wellness goals. The seeds are self-adhesive and they hold in place well. Remove them after three to five days for best results. (For a little more flash, this set comes with Swarovski crystal ear seeds, too.)
With roots in healing traditions like acupressure, cupping, and herbalism, New York-based WTHN aims to bring holistic wellbeing to the masses with chief healing officer Shari Auth’s herbal formulas, the magic that is ear seeds, and their acupuncture studios in Flatiron and NoHo.
