Holiday Gift for the Hostess or Mother
I love high quality massage products because of the way that they can take a simple massage and turn it into something decadent and extraordinary. In the past, I’ve reviewed sweetly scented massage oils and rich lotions, but I’ve never before tried a massage candle, though I’ve heard that they are quite amazing. When I was given a chance to try out the revolutionary new Shimmering Body Candle from Scandle, I couldn’t resist the opportunity.
I received a Warm Vanilla Sugar Shimmering Body Candle Travel Tin to review. The smell of this candle was absolutely mouthwatering. As soon as I took the lid off the tin the entire room seemed to fill with the scent. “What’s that smell, Mom?” Zackary questioned me eagerly the first time I opened it. “It smells like yummy food!” My husband agreed, completely captivated by the downright edible rich vanilla scent of this candle. I lit it that night to test it out and see exactly how a massage candle worked.
What makes the Scandle massage candle so special is the melting point of the soy wax. Unlike regular candle wax, which gets very hot before it melts, the Scandle wax melts at just two degrees above body temperature so that the melted candle can be applied directly to the skin without risk of injury. I lit the candle, waited about five minutes for the wax to melt enough to reach the edges of the tin and then poured a small amount into the palm of my hands. The wax was pleasantly warm, but completely tolerable and I rubbed the melted wax on my arms to see what kind of results it gave.
The melted soy candle left my arms feeling buttery soft, and the revolutionary touch of shimmer added an amazing glow to my skin. The vanilla scent was sensational, and I was thrilled to learn that all of the ingredients were 100% natural! I really enjoyed the way that the Scandle Shimmering Body Candle served two purposes by providing aroma and ambiance to the room while at the same time providing nourishment and relaxation for my skin. Best of all, the hydration my winter-dry skin received from the melted soy candle was phenomenal!
Scandle Shimmering Body Candles come in eighteen delicious scents and are available in a refillable ceramic container, a convenient travel tin like the one I received and a variety of great travel kits and gift packs. Scandle products would make the perfect pampering gift for a good friend and would also be a great hostess present or romantic gift choice. For a luxurious massage experience and a soothing atmosphere all in one, check out Scandle for yourself!
