What's Not to Love about Massage?

This candle has a lovely scent to it and provides plenty of massage oil. The lack of a pour spout is a tad problematic, and it's a tad difficult to get the wax to the proper temperature to melt and work into the skin without being unpleasantly warm, but overall, I enjoyed it, and I think you definitely get your money's worth out of it.

I'm going to assume that anyone reading this already realizes that massages can be a great deal of fun, so I'll stick to analyzing what makes this candle different from other massage products.

"Cotton Clean" sounds rather like a laundry detergent scent, so I had a little trouble imagining that it would make a pleasant scent to rub into my skin or spark any sort of an erotic experience. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a light, almost floral scent, which manages to be sweet without being overpowering. I'm not usually one for floral scents, but I really like this one, and I think that says a lot. That being said, there's a lot more to a massage candle than just the scent.

When we lit the candle, it took a good fifteen minutes for enough of a pool of wax to melt for us to be able to test out its massage properties. The lack of a pour spout meant that there were little bits of wax dribbling down the sides of the tin and making a bit of a mess of things. Unfortunately, we had also trouble finding a way to get the wax to a good temperature for massage purposes. On the one hand, if we poured it straight from the candle with the wick still lit, it was a uncomfortably warm even when we raised it high enough to have difficulty controlling where the wax landed. It wasn't hot enough to burn, but it was certainly hot enough to be unpleasant until it had a chance to cool off. On the other hand, when we blew the candle out and scooped the wax out with our fingers, the wax hardened almost immediately and became waxy and difficult to work with. My partner and I wondered whether it would be worth it to try out one of those gadgets that warm up candles so as to extrude their scent without having to burn the wick to see whether that might do the trick, but we were unable to attempt it since we didn't own such a device.

Despite the temperature issues, it made a fairly nice massage oil. It was extremely comfortable to have rubbed into my skin, and I liked it just as well when rubbing it into my partner's skin. Even the bits of wax that had already begun to harden when I was scooping them out of the candle softened when I rubbed them against my partner's skin. The oil was mildly waxy but not in a bad way since that helped smooth the skin and prevent uncomfortable friction. I felt perfectly comfortable putting my clothes back on afterwards without worrying about getting wax on them; my only concern was in regards to my hands which didn't seem to absorb the substance as well as the rest of my body did, but it came off easily enough with the application of oil and water.

Another nice thing about this candle is its size. When I saw the picture on the website, I'd assumed that it was about the size of a tea candle and that perhaps I'd be getting four small candles since the price seemed a little steep for a single tea candle. Instead, what I received was a tin about the size of my fist containing six and a half ounces of soy wax in the form of a candle. The tin also comes with a lid, so when you're not using it, you can cover the candle and prevent other things from getting into the candle and contaminating it or the spillage of excess wax. During the course of two massages covering full-grown women's backs, arms, and legs, we used less than a quarter of the candle, so I'd say it's pretty safe to assume that you can get at least eight decent massages out of it.

All-in-all, the candle isn't perfect, but I think you definitely get your money's worth out of it. I like it a great deal, and I'm sure I'll be using it again in the future.
