Nice Candle but Too Expensive for What You Get

I like the Bwarm Massage Candle overall. For the price, I would have liked to see more candle wax included with it, but to each their own.

The Bwarm Massage candle was on my wife's wishlist for about two months. She loved the design and swore up and down she just had to have it. Ha! So, when the candle arrived, we were somewhat disappointed to see just how much we got for the $22 we spent on it. It's a great candle oil, works well, just wish there was more to the candle itself.


My wife was somewhat disappointed with the container. This is listed as "disposable" (the container) and it is a plastic type holder. We love the unique design of the candle holder which allows for easy pouring. How to use: trim the wick to specified length, light the candle, and allow it to burn for a few moments or until there is a good size pool of oil. This candle goes a long way so there really isn't that much needed for a good back massage. I would say that about a "cap full" or a quarter-size pool will do just fine. Blow out the candle gently. Grab the candle and tip slowly so that the oil drizzles down to the tip of the "back" of the holder. The funnel-like shape helps to guide the oil downward and really makes for easy use for solo or couples massage.

The oil feels nice. It is a very silky oil - thin and absorbs well into the skin. It does last a pretty long time before needing to reapply (in the event that you wish to continue your massage past 15-20 minutes). The oil does dry fast, so make sure that you use all the oil from the candle holder at once that you will need for an entire massage. You will have to make sure that you keep moving your hands around, kneading and massaging so that it doesn't gum up.

The candle comes in three different scents: fig leaf(red), rose patchouli(light pink) and amber amoure (tanish brown). We tried the fig leaf. It was not anything like we had imagined. It was very "woody", I would say. My wife thought that it was a bit strong for her liking though. You can definitely smell this candle through the box and the scent does linger on the skin after the massage for quite some time. I didn't feel like I needed a shower with this oil, which was nice.

Techie Stats:

Base - beeswax / oil / palm wax / soy wax
Ingredients - coconut oil/wax, soy oil/wax, shea butter, palm wax, beeswax, jojoba oil, aloe vera, vitamin E oil, fragrance

Volume - 1.75 fl. oz.
Weight - 7 oz.

Burn Time is roughly 10 hours. I think that as much as is in the candle; the price is a bit steep.
Follow-up commentary
We still really like the oil that comes from the candle itself. Although it has been used for about a week or two after we purchased it, it was nice while it lasted. Because it doesn't last as long as we would have liked, we don't find ourselves purchasing this again (simply because of how fast it goes). There just isn't enough in the holder to justify the money asked for it. If it goes on sale, we might consider it. The holder has joined our crafting drawer for the kids, though. They like using it for paints and other things of the like. So either way, we're still getting some use out of it.
