Massage Candles

Valyn Valyn
I was wondering about massage candles. I've never had a massage with candle wax. Though I have read a bunch of reviews (some of which sound so steamy they almost make me blush!), I still have some reservations.

As a kid, I used to touch hot candle wax out of curiosity, but it was sometimes really hot. A bunch of reviews have me wanting to experience something like the reviewer had, but I'm still not sure.

Any comments/suggestions for someone new to massage candles?

The wax used in massage candles is ridiculously soft. For example, the one I have is barely solid. I can press my fingers in it, remove some 'wax' and rub that into my skin without even burning it. These types of candles don't need much heat at all to melt so they're very timid in terms of temperature. If it is too hot, you can pour from a higher distance. IE pour on someone back from 12" up instead ofj ust a few inches from their skin which gives the wax a chance to cool.

Ooh, okay, didn't know that! Now I just gotta get one! Oh, if only my wish lists weren't so long!

If you are curious then most definitely try one out, they are awesome fun and yes they are timid in terms of temperature.

Thanks everyone for your input! I want to get the Afterglow by JimmyJane [link] and the Bwarm by BShwish [link].

Would these be good starter candles?

I noticed that the JimmyJane candle says that it is "all natural" but it doesn't seem to say what type of wax it is so I'm not sure if it's non-petroleum I wonder if there are any non-petroleum massage candles. If there are then I might have to try this too!

Okay, the Bwarm says it is natural wax (coconut, beeswax, etc). It unfortunately has jojoba, which I'm allergic to. Darn!

I have the afterglow candle and it's quite nice. It is, I believe, a soy wax which turns into a massage oil. It melts at a fairly low temperature, so you don't have to worry too much about burning your skin. Most massage candles are low temp melting points, so those are better to use than regular candles.

My afterglow candle listed phthalates as an ingredient but all natural waxes.

We've tried the Bwarm and Ember massage candles, and both are lovely. Ember does seem to melt at a slightly higher temperature than Bwarm, but far from being hot enough to damage your skin. Both candles smell delicious and either is great for massage. I guess it depends on your budget

You must get a massage candle. They don't get super hot. I love to drip mine on my nipples and clit. Sometimes that's all I need to have a wonderful orgasm.

I've never used massage candles, but have definitely had my eye on the Jimmyjane sampler.

I have the Passion candle. It's my first (so went with a cheaper one) and I'm impressed. I want more!

They're fantastic. I remember going to a local workshop on hot wax play and they said that some of the really cheap votive candles (with the saints and stuff on them?) from places like the dollar store melt at really low temperatures too, so you can use those as well.

Is soy based thicker than an oil based candle?
