Every adult romance novel author out there will mention candles once things are about to heat up. You know the scene – first night together, finally getting some action and the ambiance needs to be set. Romantic candles are really the solution!
But did you know that there are candles that doesn’t only set the mood but also allows you and your partner to have some interesting foreplay? Let me introduce you to a massage oil candle.
It sounds pretty intimidating because if we base it in the past, the initial reaction to massage oil candles is a mix of shock and excitement. And we totally agree – the thought of a candle wax melting into a massage oil is one thing. But smearing it all over your partner’s body may be a tad bit too frightening for some. It is essentially wax play mixed with a little temperature teasing after all.
Before we move on to showing you 3 massage oil candle choices that you and your partner may be interested in, and for the safety of anyone who may want to purchase, let us just briefly explain the proper use of such products.
That’s right, the first thing you do is of course, light the candle. Initially, the aroma will work its way in the room and will heighten some of your senses. But that’s just the beginning. Once the wax melts, you’re allowed to drip it all over your partner’s back. If this is too hot for one partner, then you have the option to rub the melted massage candle oil on your hands first before applying it on your partner’s skin also so they can adjust to this new sensation. Over time, both of you will enjoy different ways to play with this candle. And sometimes, you may even just prefer using it for getting a massage.
This is one of the very first massage oil candles that I’ve tried personally because the name of the product itself is very alluring. The candle is made of coconut oil, vitamin E and shea butter and is basically body moisturizer hardened into a wax-like formula. And I say wax-like because this product is wax-free. The candle has a little pouring spout so you won’t need to scoop the massage oil out of the container.
This massage oil candle is a great option for massages but this is indeed great for love-making. It has a very potent smell that leaves quite a flavor on your senses.
Just manage your expectations because it can be stickier than regular massage oils because of its moisturizing benefits. This is why I suggest you light it up at least 10 minutes before using it.
I bought this candle because I am obsessed with Cedarwood scents ever since Jo Malone perfumes became mainstream. I mean, every girl had to get one. I was even more hell bent to purchasing this when I found out that it contains one of the most relaxing oils ever, lavender!
This candle is great for those of you who are eco-friendly because it is made of 100% Soy Wax and Oils that don’t contain any pesticides, herbicides or any genetically modified materials. Even the packaging is 100% recyclable. I’ve just gone through my 2nd can and I’ve been using these cans as accessory containers for my dresser.
I don’t usually use this candle for foreplay. I use this more to set a relaxing mood after a long day. It helps me shut down and unplug into a restful sleep at night and it should do the same for your partner. Everyone needs an peaceful cuddle every now and then. The slumber it gives you is just perfect!
It’s a cost effective choice because the total burn time is over 20 hours. If it matters, I noticed that it kept mosquitoes away!
Saving the best for last, the perfect erotic candle for those of you who are into fruity scents! With its Island Passion Berry scent, you are sure to turn every night into a tropical like experience with your loved one. The scent is a mix of luscious passion fruit, papaya and berry with a little bit of mango! SWEET!
As long as these Kama Sutra candles are concerned, they do give your skin a silky finish which adds to your confidence in bed. This is such a great choice for couples who want to try erotic candles for the first time because of its sweet scent. I’ve actually gifted some couples I know with this and they ended up buying other flavors and scents next from the same company. Just like the first Kama Sutra candle mentioned, this one also has a pout which makes pouring very convenient.
General Disclaimers for Massage Oil Candles
A lot of you reading this are probably new to massage oil candles and are in the experimental stage. They’ve only grown really popular over the past decade and may be a new option for many couples out there so it’s best to educated you on what you should expect.
As these products are activated by heat, you can expect them to be hot at first contact. This level of heat may be compared to a hot stone massage. The first time a masseuse puts a hot stone on your back, you’ll immediately feel how hot it is but your skin should adjust to it right away. The same is true for massage oil candles, it doesn’t hurt and the temperature won’t make you feel uncomfortable.
Set your expectations as well when it comes to the amount of oil you’re gonna get once you light it up. It will take around 10 to 20 minutes of wick-burning before you get an ample amount of oil. This is, of course, a case to case basis. So experiment with it a bit before actually using it.
