Ear seeds are seeds placed on your ear to serve as tiny acupressure devices. They’re a type of auriculotherapy, a traditional Chinese medicine technique that focuses on areas in your ear. They’re thought to promote comfort and relaxation. People may use them to help with pain, insomnia, substance abuse, and mental issues ranging from anxiety to grief. 

These seeds traditionally come from an herb called vaccaria but can also be made of ceramic or metal. They’re placed on the outside of your ear over certain acupuncture points. They’re usually held in place by waterproof tape and stay on your ears for up to a week.

How Ear Seeds Work 

After cleaning your ear, place the seeds on the outside of your ear. It doesn’t hurt, but you may feel some tenderness or warmth. Once they’re in place, you massage them two to three times a day. To do this, apply gentle pressure to the seeds and move them in small circles.
