Body massage candle by System JO

Whoever invented these is a genius.

Massage oil candles now have a permanent place in our bedroom. They're easy to use, smell great, and provide some of the much-needed hands on "touch" time that so many of us are lacking. Great for foreplay or just a romantic, relaxing massage!
Easy to use, portable, leaves skin soft.
You must watch for the tin to get hot when the wax is getting low.

This is the most amazing set-the-mood and head into foreplay item I've ever purchased. Ever. Candles are fantastic at setting just the right mood, and then to have a massage oil at the perfect temperature right at your fingertips is an amazing bonus!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The soy based oil pours in just the right amount at the perfect temperature from the candle. It's smooth, non greasy, and spreads easily. I loved the fact that it absorbs into your skin, leaving it soft but not oily or slick.

Taste / Aroma

I was worried based on the scent of the candle that it would be overpowering on my skin. No worries! The lit candle gently fills the room, but the scent on your skin is much lighter than you'd expect. Good to know in case you don't have time to shower before heading out on your way!
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


We got three uses out of this candle, but we used it for long periods of time and for full body massages. I'd suggest blowing it out when you know that you're finished with it, as some of the wax does disappear while it's burning. It absorbed nicely and I didn't feel like I had to shower and scrub it off before I went on with my day. No greasy, stained sheet, either!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely


Without a close inspection (and sometimes even on inspection!) it just looks like a normal candle in a tin. It's very discreet, portable, and easy to use: simply light, wait for some wax to melt, and pour!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

An added bonus that I did not expect: the warm, soy based wax really absorbed into my skin, leaving it SO soft! A great bonus, especially in the winter months. My dry elbows and heels really thanked me!
    • Moisturizing

Personal comments

The tin can become very warm, especially when the wax is getting low. Be careful! Also, watch the flame when you're tipping the oil out. I suggest pouring into your hand instead of directly onto your partner.


We love this. LOVE. I used them constantly while pregnant, we travel with them to "set the mood" and we always have a few stashed in the bedroom for warm oil massages that often turn into more!
