What is Karna Purna?

Karna Purna is an application of warm oil into the ear. When karna purna imageelements of Vata Dosha (air and ether) within the ear are out of balance and in excess, we can reverse this by applying oil which consists of earth and water elements. Ayurveda experts explain that the ear is a sacred place of subconscious memories being in womb where one feels safe and loved. The warm oil gives you the feeling of peace, tranquility and stillness; when the highest healing can take place.
