Bwarm - massage candle by B Swish - review by El-Jaro

Aromatic and Awesome!

The Bwarm is a great smelling candle/massage oil. Made from natural ingredients, it adds to the experience of giving your partner a relaxing body rub.
Smells great! Easy to use
Hard to judge how much you're going to get.

This product is a good multi-tasker! First, it's not a bad little candle. I'm not sure what the holder is made out of, silicone or some kind of rubber, but it gives a soft reflection of light.

The wax/oil has a list of natural ingredients (coconut oil/wax, soy oil/wax, shea butter, palm wax, bees wax, jojoba oil, aloe vera, vitamin e oil, and fragrance), so it could be good for those with allergies and/or sensitivities to harsh chemicals. The natural ingredients will absorb into the skin and shouldn't cause too much harm (rashes, acne, clogged pores); make sure you try a bit on your arm or leg to make sure you don't react to it. I've got really sensitive skin and had no problems with the Bwarm.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The texture of the wax/oil is unique. When not lit, the wax is soft and pliable. Because of the low melting point of the wax, you could actually finger out a bit and apply it that way. When melted, the wax turns into a massage oil that applies like a gel but acts as an oil. The oil's consistency is pretty smooth and not too thick when applying.

Because of the low melting point, the wax doesn't really harden at room temp either. You could almost apply it without lighting the candle, but fire is so much fun!

Taste / Aroma

I LOVE the smell of Bwarm! I have the fig scent. It's a light yet persistent fragrance. I've only used it once and then set it in on my computer desk. Now, every time I sit down, I'm welcomed by subtle scent of figs (like the Newton, only better).

The smell lingers on the skin until washed off with soap, water, and a wee bit of scrubbing.


The dryness of the person's skin really affects how long it lasts during the rub-down. If the person has dry skin, the natural oils seep right in and you'll need to apply more. When melting the wax, give it an extra minutes of melting time. It's hard to judge how much you have to work with, better to have more melted than more needed.

The melted wax turns into more of a gel than oil, which is actually better for application; it doesn't spread around as much. The gel easily pours out of the container because of the unique design of the candle holder. The gel pretty much stays put where you pour it.

I'm kind of a fuzzy guy and this oil/gel didn't cause any painful hair pulling or knotting (thank goodness!).

As above, the oil doesn't come off with just soap and water. You have to rub it out a bit or use a loofah. You could also just leave it on for a bit for some moisturizing.


The Bwarm comes set in a formed plastic tray in the box along with the multi-lingual user manual.

Special Features

Other than acting like a small area air freshener, the Bwarm is a good moisturizer too. It has Vit E and Shea butter, much like a good hand lotion.

Personal comments

I like Bwarm a lot and can't wait to use it again!

Make sure you blow out the wick before applying!


We took turns giving each other massages with the gel from the Bwarm. However, because it's so hard to misjudge the amount you're going to melt out, we switched over to another massage oil.

The mix of the two was ok, no interactions. The intermingling of the smells was interesting too.

We definitely plan on using Bwarm until it's gone.
Follow-up commentary
After a few months, it looks like you can probably get about 12-14 uses out of each Bwarm. But this is variable, depending on how much you use and how the wick burns.

The wick seemed to burn really fast with the fig scent.

    Good review! You said the candle is made with natural ingredients, but does that include the fragrance? Would you say its a genuine fig smell or a manufactured one? I tend to be incompatible with artificial fragrance, but love massage oil candles. I want to try it, especially if it's chemical free.
  • El-Jaro
    LaLY: thanks! The "fragrance" part is the only part I'm unsure about. Good chance that it's fake. I really don't have a lot of experience with genuine vs. art. fig. Like I said, I have really sensitive skin (swedish/irish) and had no problems with it.

    Miss Cinnamon: Thanks! Its surprising not that hot, about "hot shower" hot. It's not at all like "warming lotion" hot, cuz I'd have a bad reaction to it (swede/irish). Since the melting point of the oil isn't that high, I really couldn't tell a difference with the massage.
  • Sammi
    I like how the holder has a way to pour the wax out. How many massages do you think you'll get out of this candle?
    Good review!
  • El-Jaro
    hmmm...good question. 15-20 maybe? I'll do a follow up when its done.

    thanks for the question!
  • Kayla
    20 is pretty good. It seems a little expensive, but for twenty, that's not too bad with price. Thanks for a great review.
  • El-Jaro
    that range is really more ballpark. The wax is about 1/2 gone, the wick is almost all gone, and we've used it about 7 times.
  • ......
    I love these candles too. Very nice review!
