Soy Lotion Candle
The Real Therapeutic Candle

The soy lotion candle is one of those neat little things that make you slap your forehead and say, "Why didn't I think of that?"

The concept is easy, take a natural wax candle like palm oil wax or soy oil wax, add some scent or preferably essential oils. All cosmetic grade, light the candle, warm up the wax and then pour the heated wax on any part of the your body for a soothing massage.

Warning: Do not try this with a regular paraffin candle

Because paraffin burns much hotter than the natural wax of palm or soy, it will burn and this you do not want that.

The soy wax burns a whole lot cooler than paraffin, so it's very soothing and does not burn the skin. And if you happen to be somewhere you can't light the candle to warm the wax. The soy wax is soft enough to just scoop some out with your finger and massage it into your skin.

I know, I thought the same thing...

Who would ever want that chunky hot wax on your skin, that you have to peel the shell like wax off your fingers after it cools. Well, that's not the case because with this soy lotion candle, because it is a natural wax oil. It is more similar to heated baby oil and you just massage it in.

Here are some favorite spots you will love to massage this magic warm lotion:

  • Those dry and cracked elbows
  • Finger knuckles, cuticles, dry arms
  • Heels and calloused portions of the foot
  • Use on back and shoulders or anywhere for a soothing massage
  • Any place you find dry skin like arms, knees, there is no limit

After you light the soy lotion candle, let it burn till you have a nice little pool of wax blow the candle out and just pour it on the area you want to massage it into. Or simply pour some into your palm and rub it in to dry skin.

And even if you don't have any dry skin areas it's a great, relaxing treat to your skin.

Don't cheat yourself out of this simple pleasure like I did when I first heard about it. But be careful make sure they are the real soy lotion candle, or soy massage candle.

The soy massage candles use a cosmetic grade of soy oil, and usually cocoa, shea or avocado butter is added and also vitamins like Vitamin E or any other kind of additives for healthy, soft skin.

They usually come in little votive type holders or candle tins.

Simple secret pleasures are so nice to find and this is certainly one of them. Try it, you will love it. Use it at the office and every one will be curious and then jealous of your little find. Enjoy!

Your website is incredible!!!! I learned much. I chuckled when you stated to not expect your "first pour" to be perfect.

LOL My first pour was last week and was mediocre. Try try again. Right?

Thanks, Linda
