Whenever I think of hot candle wax, my mind immediately goes to the scene from the “Living La Vida Loca” video. Cheesy, yes but I can’t help it. I have always been afraid of burning myself with candles, so I never considered using a massage oil candle until I learned about the Scandle Candles.
A Scandle is a combination aromatherapy and candle and body massage cream. It burns at a mere 2 degrees above body temperature, so it’s safe to use on the skin, or you can even just scoop the wax out and use it! Scandles are based with pure soy wax, so you won’t find any nasty parabens. It burns clean, so it’s great as just a plain candle as well. They’re available in 18 fragrances and come in both original and travel sizes.
Scandle sent me a travel tin of their Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey Scandle. I burned it for the recommended 30 minutes to ensure an even burn, blew out the flame, and nervously applied the hot wax onto my guinea pig/husband. (I have an irrational fear of burning myself!) I needn’t have been worried, as the wax was just warm to the touch, a perfect relaxing temperature. The massage oil was very creamy and lotiony, and not waxy at all. It absorbed into the skin well. The scent was pleasant and sweet. Next time, I want to try their Green Tea Aloe fragrance.
Scandle also sent me a sample of their Dead Sea Salt Soak & Scrub. It’s a perfect compliment to the Scandle and together they are the perfect at-home pampering system. Scandle also has additional accesories, including a wick trimmer, a skin renewal kit, a special kit for hands & feet, and a lamp to use to warm the candle if you don’t want to light it.
The Scandle is a truly unique, multi-functional product. Check them out at their website for a special treat to yourself or a gift for a special someone.
