An Old Idea That's New Again......

Earseeds have recently gained celebrity status. With people like Gwenyth Paltrow wearing them, they immediately become quite the buzz. So what are these things anyway?


Auriculotherapy is the stimulation of specific points on the ear, which is believed to be a microsystem of the entire body. There are points on the ear for everything from emotional to physical, from internal organs and the tips of your fingers.


When using Auriculotherapy with EarSeeds, small round metal pellets or natural vaccaria seeds (from the vaccaria plant) are secured on the surface of the ear with a piece of adhesive tape. They are strategically placed over specific acupressure points.

The continuous mild pressure they exert is amplified by pressing the seed or pellet for a few seconds every few hours. 


Auriculotherapy can be done by licensed acupuncture practitioners with acupuncture needles, tacks, even electrical stimulation. Earseeds are non-invasive, meaning, unlike needles or tacks, they are affixed on the surface of the ear and do not puncture the skin, making them an accessible and safe option for self-care.


EarSeeds can be left on for up to 5 days, even with showering, sleeping, swimming etc. They may fall off sooner, depending on where they’ve been placed. After 5 days of wear, remove seeds and allow the skin to rejuvenate for 8-24 hours before replacement with fresh Ear Seeds. Following this cycle, you can continue to wear them on an ongoing basis. 


If you are pregnant please consult your doctor before using EarSeeds. If skin irritation occurs from the ear seeds, or if swelling should occur, remove the Ear Seeds immediately and contact your doctor if symptoms persist. The tan tape ear seeds contain latex and should not be used by those with a latex allergy.


Sometimes, when a point is “active” the earseed will make the ear feel sore, tender and sensitive to touch. This is normal. If discomfort persists you can remove the seeds and reapply at a later time. This discomfort is different than a skin irritation.

On rare occasion, some extremely sensitive people may experience slight nausea or dizziness upon application. This should disappear within the first few minutes after application.


Historically and in studies, with proper placement, EarSeeds have been shown to work immediately for some individuals with certain conditions, and take longer – up to a few weeks with multiple sessions – with others. Listen to your body. Auriculotherapy is a single modality that can help, but they are not a magic pill.


The seeds in our kits are natural organic matter and are especially useful for patients who are sensitive to metals. They are held in place with tan colored tape and can generally be expected to stay in place 3-5 days, depending on the area of the ear where they’ve been placed. Please note the tape used in our vaccaria ear seeds contains latex. The metal pellets or beads are generally smaller and are held in place with clear tape which is less conspicuous. Clear tape is latex-free. Metal pellets can be expected to stay in place 2-4 days, depending on the area of the ear where they’ve been placed. All of our Swarovski Crystal and Limited Edition Ear Seeds use metal pellets plated in 24-karat gold.
