Massage oil candle - body massage candle by PicoBong - review by veggielover

Meh-sage Candle

Don't bother with this if you are looking to do an actual massage. You will end up sorely disappointed. This is just a candle and nothing more. Get a good massage OIL for a massage and you won't have to smell like you got dipped in hot melted plastic and tanning oil.
strong scent, natural soy wax
poor performance, expensive for size

Ah, I had high hopes for this one. But as you can tell from my title, my experience was an overwhelming "Meh...".
The idea of a candle that I could burn, then use the melted oil/wax for a massage sounded like a decent idea; warm liquid slowly dripped upon the skin, a flickering flame to enhance the mood. Not to mention a lovely scent wafting through the room. The reality of the situation proved to be a whole different story.

I lit the candle and waited for enough wax to melt to be useful for a massage. I set a stopwatch (how romantic!) to time how long it would take to get a reasonable amount of wax. Patience was needed. After twenty seven minutes passed, about a teaspoon of liquid was available for a dripping onto the skin. I tested this on my own arm and it was a bit hot for my liking, but maybe blowing out the flame and letting it cool for a few minutes would help. Maybe I'm just a sissy.

I proceeded to rub the wax into my arm skin. At first is felt smooth, but only about a minute passed before the wax became tacky and there was no longer a possibility to use this for a massage. It simply contains too much wax and not enough oil to be used for this purpose. Wax is not for massaging. It hardens quickly and firmly, while the oil added to it provides only the slightest greasiness to relieve the friction.

I quickly gave up hope that this would be a useful product and began evaluating its other properties. The coco-nutty scent was pleasant, but a bit overwhelming for me, as it was very artificial. Worse than tanning oil, which I actually don't mind. The scent altered after the candle was lit then poured onto my skin. Sniffing my arm, I picked up on a strong burnt plastic smell. I couldn't determine how the scent changed so much because the lit candle still smelled the same. Only after pouring it did the scent change. My only guess is the wax came in contact with the flame somehow. I considered that it could have reacted with my body chemistry, so I poured a little wax onto a spoon and smelled it. Again, the burnt plastic smell. I can only guess that it was the flame affecting the scent as I poured.

At forty one minutes into the burn time I checked the amount of wax that had melted (this is when I poured it into the spoon for the smell test) It was actually LESS than a teaspoon. Keep this as just a candle and don't attempt anything more. Use a good massage oil for a massage and a candle as a candle. Multitasking means both tasks are done poorly.
Follow-up commentary
I threw this candle away after the first try. It is really only a one time use item, and I won't be getting one again.
