What are EarSeeds?

The basics

The ear is a microsystem of the entire body.

Ear Seeds are a non-invasive, safe and effective tool used to stimulate points on this microsystem.

Ear Seeds consist of tiny seeds, beads or pellets that are held in place on the surface of the ear with tape.

When you know where they go, you simply: 

the seeds onto the appropriate points. The constant pressure they exert is amplified by pressing on the seeds for a few seconds, multiple times per day.

It’s about proper placement.

Worn for 2-5 days at a time, all ear seeds work on the same principle of providing acupressure on specific ear points.

Proper placement is the #1 key to effective ear seeding.

All of our EarSeeds Condition charts and kits are designed to teach you points traditionally associated with specific common conditions. They are created by licensed acupuncturist and Auriculotherapy expert and teacher, Elie Goldschmidt, L.Ac.. Additionally, some of the charts are created in conjunction with acupuncturist specialists in their respective fields.

For more customized care, we suggest a visit with an EarSeeds Certified Practitioner.

It’s also about aesthetics… and so much more.

Here’s a bit about the different types of EarSeeds so you can find the style that’s right for you.


Vaccaria Seed Ear Seeds

Perhaps the most traditional Ear Seeds, these are made with an actual seed from the flowering vaccaria plant. These seeds measure about 2mm in size and provide a nice, constant stimulation to ear pressure points.

The classic tan tape EarSeeds are what you will find in our Vaccaria Condition-Specific Kits.

Please note: All our vaccaria ear seeds contain natural latex rubber


Stainless Steel Pellet Ear Seeds

Discreet and nearly invisible, our stainless steel pellet ear seeds utilize a clear, latex-free medical grade tape to hold them in place.

The tiny pellets offer gentle pressure and when properly applied to clean, dry ears, can be expected to stay in place between 2-5 days, even with showering and daily activity.

Available inside our newest assortment of condition-specific kits.


24K Gold Pellet Ear Seeds

As discreet as our Stainless Steel, but with an extra spark of luxury, our 24K gold ear seeds on latex-free, clear medical tape do an incredible job meeting all your ear seeding needs.

All of our Luxury EarSeeds and Limited Editions utilize our 24K EarSeeds as their base.

Gold is believed in chinese medicine to inhabit the properties of a blood invigorator.


Swarovski® Crystal Embellished Ear Seeds

Utilizing our 24K Gold EarSeeds as the base, we’ve hand embellished these ear seeds with dazzling Genuine Swarovski Crystals. Swarovski is world renowned for their high quality, high-shine faceted crystals. 

Using a proprietary, glue-free process our EarSeeds are hand embellished in San Diego, CA by local artisans, students, moms and military spouses.
