What Is a Massage Candle?

The pool of melted wax in a massage candle is used to mositurise your skin as part of a luxurious massage.

Making a soy massage candle is almost the same as making any other type of container candle. Soy wax is quite soft so it melts and pools easily.  It won’t irritate your skin unless you have a soy allergy.  Combine soy wax with various oils and butters which will feed and moisturise the skin, for example shea butter, cocoa butter, Vit E oil etc.

Essential oils or Candle Deli’s skin safe fragrance oils could be added to create a soothing atmosphere. Make sure that the fragrance you choose is safe for use on the body. All skin safe fragrances can be used in soy massage candles provided that you respect the recommended dosage levels.
