Yesterday i asked on twitter if people knew how to use a massage candle and was informed that a fair few of you didn't so i thought I'd write a little post about my massage candles and how to use them.
After all Valentines will soon be here and what better time to try one?
I made both of these below but decided on the heart shaped tins because they are easier to pour because of the pointed tip.
Massage candles can be made out of various ingredients but mine are made from Shea butter, Cocoa Butter, soy, Sweet Almond oil and Apricot oil which is a stunning blend of natural oils with a small amount of Delicious fragrances added for a luxury finish.
Simply light the candle and leave to burn for around 10/ 15 minutes
Dim the lights (Much more flattering)
As the candle melts it creates a pool of warm melted oil. When you are ready just blow the candle out and pour the warm oil into your hands and massage away.
The oil doesn't get hot like wax as it melts at a much lower temperature and the oils leave your skin ultra soft, silky and smelling sweet.
Today i made these White Chocolate Fragranced Massage Candles with Valentines day in mind. They smell Amazing
I also have the silver heart shaped tins available in Bakewell Tart or Buttered Pecan & Maple
If you are single and like the look of these then another great way to use them is to light one and relax in the bath for a while then use the warm oil that will have melted afterwards on your body.
Depending on how long you let each candle burn for you will on average get 4 massages out of each tin . Priced at £5.99 i think they are a bargain and will definitely put you in the mood for Lurrrrve.
Thanks for reading and I'd love to know your thoughts on these xx
