A massage candle is a candle that you can massage with once the wax has melted . When you light the wick, the wax melts into an oil that is suitable for smearing the skin. In fact, it is massage oil. A massage candle resembles an ordinary candle and melts the same. However, an ordinary candle is absolutely not suitable for massaging the skin. A massage candle has a low ignition temperature and is therefore harmless. The oil will feel warm, but not painfully hot. Provided the candle is used properly, there will be no burns when using this specific massage oil .
What can you do with a massage candle?
A massage candle can primarily contribute to a relaxing and even romantic atmosphere. In general, a massage candle contains a fragrance that fills the entire room when lit. In addition, a massage candle is of course intended for massaging someone. A massage candle does not need to be lit immediately after you have lit it. When you use some and leave the rest in the jar, the wax will harden on its own. This way you can light the candle again later to use again for a massage.
Taking care of the body
Besides the fact that a massage candle serves as a massage oil, it is generally also good for the skin. Massage candles are made from skin-friendly products. The composition of ingredients ensures that the wax does not remain on the skin and becomes hard, but rather absorbs. The oil can significantly soften and nourish the skin . The greasy substance of the candle is also good for people with dry skin. Besides that a massage candle is good for the skin, it is also good for the muscles . Since the oil is warm, the muscles also get warm. This ensures that they relax and possibly 'come off'. Especially in combination with a massage (muscle) complaints can be remedied somewhat. Of course this cannot be guaranteed, but you should always try.
A massage candle for foreplay
In addition to the oil from a massage candle taking care of the body, it can also contribute to foreplay. Many people experience an (erotic) massage as something intimate where you can get excited. In addition, such a massage is very relaxing and both can get to know each other's body well . All this can ensure that the sex is experienced more intensively.
The wax from a massage candle is absolutely not suitable as a lubricant. The ingredients are nice for the skin, but can be irritating to the genitals. The skin of a vagina or penis is generally thin, and both the female and male genitals are prone to infections. The perfumes in the candles can kill good bacteria and disturb the body 's pH level . Therefore always use lubricant (water-based) for the genitals.
What different models are there?
In general, all massage candles work in the same way. But there are small differences between the candles that can make all the difference to you.
Massage candles with pouring spout
Almost all candles come in a (round) container. Likewise the candles of the brand Kama Sutra. However, these variants have a pouring spout so that you can pour the oil on the skin or on your hand. It prevents the oil from running past the tray and therefore partly being lost. The place where you place the candle also remains clean. The massage candles from Shunga also do not have a round, but a triangular container, which makes it easier to pour the oil than with a round container. The disadvantage of massage candles with spout is that these variants are often more expensive to purchase. If you want to keep things clean and have a little extra money, candles with spout are ideal.
Massage candles with scents
In principle, every massage candle has a scent, so that not only the room smells good, but also the skin. There are many scents to choose from. Think for example of tropical and fruity scents, flowers, vanilla, chocolate or ocean. Besides these recognizable scents, you can also be surprised by massage candles of which it is not known exactly what it smells like. These candles have a unique scent and are often given a name invented by the manufacturer. Like the Exotiq Massage Candle Bamboo Orchids.
Pheromones massage candles
The candles from Dona and Eye of Love not only contain a unique scent, but also a pheromone substance. This substance provides extra attraction between two people and is also popularly referred to as attractant or aphrodisiac. By default, humans and animals emit pheromones to catch a potential mate. This phenomenon is also called 'chemistry'. Especially with an erotic massage, oil with pheromones can provide extra seduction. The disadvantage is that it is not certain whether the oil with pheromones actually has an effect on everyone. You could try it out to find out.
What should you pay attention to and which are the best?
In principle, every massage works in the same way. To make your choice a bit easier, we therefore make a distinction between beginners and advanced users.
Beginner or advanced
If you are not yet familiar with massage candles, it is wise to purchase a cheap candle. This way you can try out whether massage candles are for you. You may have sensitive skin. The candles will never burn, but the warm oil may feel uncomfortable to you. Therefore, try out an affordable standard candle first. The REBEL Massage candle from Eye of Love is a suitable and affordable candle to start with. When you are advanced, you can spend a little more money. For example, the candles from Kama Sutra are very popular. They are user-friendly because of their spout, have unique scents and contain the nourishing ingredients coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E. Moreover, they are also sustainable because you don't need much of it.
As a gift
A massage candle is nice to give as a gift because it is a unique gift. There is a wide choice and in principle every variant is suitable . The massage candles from Shunga and Kama Sutra, for example, are of high quality and have a chic appearance. The candles from Eye of Love can be extra surprising due to their pheromone substance, while the candles from the brand Dona have a hydrating effect on the skin. The disadvantage of a massage candle as a gift is that it is a relatively expensive gift. But if you have the money, it is Weekender Kit Travel Kit from Kama Sutra a suitable gift. In this package you will find three different candles, each with a different scent.
How do you use a massage candle?
A massage candle is easy to use and can provide an unforgettable experience. Still, you have to be careful when you apply the oil. The following steps can help:
Light the candle and put it away temporarily in a safe place. You can't knock it over like that. With most candles you will have to wait 15 to 30 minutes for the wax to melt . While the candle is out of range, it is possible to start with foreplay or warming.
When the wax has completely melted, you are left with a transparent oil. Blow out the candle and wait a few seconds. Never let the candle burn. In contrast to the oil, the flame can of course cause burns.
Before pouring the oil over your partner's skin or into your palm, you should test it. Gently insert your finger into the wax and judge if it is too hot or not for your partner.
Then lubricate a small piece of skin with the wax. If your partner or yourself is allergic to the oil, it will soon become apparent. In case of redness, pain, itching and / or swelling, you should wash off the oil immediately.
Now you can start massaging.
When you have finished massaging, you can clean your hands and the body of your partner with an (old) towel. You can also wash off the residual oil by taking a shower. Chances are that the massaged skin will feel nice and soft and hydrated.
