Don't stop massage candle
Related to: 
Im not really one for the whole "hot wax" foreplay, but I really love the massage benefits because of my muscle/joint pains and fibromyalgia issues. $35 seems like a lot to spend on this candle, but I LOVE the look and it seems to be a decent size. What do you think? Are there better ones out there? Which is your favorite? What would you suggest?

While I don't have that specific candle, we have tried others and we really enjoy using them. My partner absolutely loves the heat of the oil. I know he would say it's worth it. I personally think $35 is a bit much, but since my partner loves it so much, I let him buy it lol!

There are other candles that are decent for lower prices if you wanted to try one out. Try searching the Tantric Candle. We tried that one and it was pretty fantastic.

The JimmyJane candles are about the best as far as what you get and the massage that you can get from the oil. There are a lot of candles that would be good for short massages where you're basically just rubbing the oil in as a moisturizer, but for most longer massages where the oil starts out as a candle JimmyJane Afterglows are probably going to be recommended the most. The Tantric candle that sktb0007 recommends is a good one too, and cheaper than the Afterglows.

I hear a lot of good things about the tantric so far. It seems so small though. I just can't justify spending that kind of dough on a small candle lol. But, Ill look into it. Ill check out those jimmyjane ones too. Thanks everyone!

Kinda gimmicky, gone after a couple of massages... not exactly a long term investment, but a lot of fun for a special evening

We purchased one of these from a local shop and really enjoy it. It was a bit pricy, but we've gotten a lot of use out of it and there is still half of the candle left.

The wax doesn't get hot enough to burn, but is deliciously warm and at least for the one we have, a little goes a long way. We will often give each other a massage using the candle just for relaxation. Well worth the price for us!

I would love to try them myself, but they are just entirely too costly for what they are..

I really like Earthly Body's massage candles. They are definitely under $30 (under $20 even?, vegan, and they have a variety of wonderful scents.JimmyJane is also good, but they're more expensive.

I don't think they are that expensive. I mean, to buy a nicely scented candle for mood lighting that is that size, you are spending at least 15 dollars. Then to buy a nice massage oil that won't clog pores, you'll spend 20 dollars. With the combination you'll actually save.

I've got a Jimmyjane candle and I love it to pieces. I don't use it often because of the long burn time, but in the winter it's nice to have pre-warmed oil for massaging my boy. Plus, everything smells nice after! And the oil is a nice moisturizer too. If you decide you don't like how hot it gets, the Jimmyjane's melt with just a little heat. I can run my fingers across it a few times and get a decent amount. Enough for a quick, centralized massage (Hands, feet.)

I was wondering about this myself -- I think I'll stick to massage oil or lotion
