Your Guide to Erotic Massage Candles

There’s something hot about candles – other than the obvious. Turning down the lights and lighting scented candles around the room is a classic and sensual way to set the mood. The soft light and flickering shadows on your partner’s skin can be mesmerizing.

Shutting out the world and getting naked by candlelight is top of list for a romantic night in. Candles aren’t just for setting a sexy mood. They can also add a little kink to your sex life, so if you’re looking to spice up your adult playtime, a massage candle might be just the right touch. Surprise your partner by turning your romantic source of ambiance into a naughty dip into temperature play with hot wax that melts in your hands – like your partner will. 

Let's be clear here these aren’t your standard birthday cake candles, but you might get what you wish for after you blow them out. Massage candles are ambiance in a pot that turns into molten massage oil when things get hot. A treat both romantic and erotic to add to your bag of bedroom tricks.

What Are Massage Candles?

Massage candles are made of soy wax or beeswax blended with ingredients like vitamin e and almond oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter and aromatherapy essential oils, and even pheromones for an extra-sensual sensory experience. The best massage candle is made for sex and skin, warm and silky smooth it will melt your worries away.

Massage candles burn at just the right temperature, a lower temperature than household candles. That means they produce hot, silky, liquid wax perfect for erotic massage. Unlike household candles, massage candle wax doesn’t burn your skin or even peel off. It melts into your skin with a bit of help from your partner or yourself. You have your candle as low temperature as you need, just allow it too cool longer.

And with ingredients like shea butter, it will leave your skin softer and glowing. So you’ll want to rub it … well, we think you’ll want to rub it just about everywhere!

Coconut Oil

You can use coconut oil as a moisturizer depending on your skin type. It is comedogenic, meaning it can potentially clog pores, so if you have oily or combination skin it’s best to avoid using pure coconut oil as a moisturizer.

Shea Butter

Shea butter has significant levels of vitamins A and E, which means it promotes strong antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are important anti-aging agents. They protect your skin cells from free radicals that can lead to premature aging and dull-looking skin.

Jojoba Oil

This gorgeous oil has a variety of healing properties that may make it effective in treating skin conditions. You can enjoy its benefits by using it as a cleanser, moisturizer, or spot treatment. It can typically be used anywhere on your body, including your face, without being diluted.

The Best Massage Candles

Use these sexy massage candles and gentle hands as foreplay to massage away the stress of the day. The intimacy, relaxation, and increased blood flow to all your partner’s parts will only make the rest of the evening that much more intense.

Or add a touch of kink to your date by dripping the melted soy wax oil onto erogenous zones. Shoulders, neck, back of the feet, inner thighs, or a foot massage all feel heavenly. You could also take your time exploring, looking for undiscovered erogenous zones. Just be careful on extra-sensitive areas where the oil could be too warm for comfort.

Why Use Special Candles?

As tempting as it may be to grab the closest candle in the heat of the moment, don’t reach for any old candle. Regular candles weren’t made for play. They can burn your skin, and not in a sexy way.

Massage Candles are delightfully different:

  • The melted wax turns into a sensual massage oil
  • They nourish your skin just as good as coconut oil
  • They use ingredients such as jojoba oil, almond oil and shea butter
  • They don’t leave bits of wax on your skin or in your blankets
  • The warm heat is pleasurable, not painful
  • They’re a mood setter and a bedroom toy in one
  • Suitable for a home spa experience

14 Reasons to Use Massage Candles

If you’re on the edge about using massage candles, here are 8 reasons to experiment with them:

  • To create a sensual intimate setting
  • For variety and spice
  • To enjoy temperature play
  • Relaxing aromatherapy massage
  • Enriched with vitamin e oil and cocoa butter
  • Hands-on turns on
  • Silky, slippery skin
  • Enjoy the melted wax experience
  • That slight BDSM vibe
  • They’re a gateway to sex toys
  • A massage candle doesn't require a partner! Treat yourself!
  • A perfect naughty treat for valentine's day
  • They comes in a variety of scents
  • Excellent addition to your skincare routine

Are massage candles good for you?

Massage candles often contain essential oils for aromatherapy benefits, as well as ingredients such as vitamin E, shea butter or coconut oil, which can work to smooth and nourish the skin.

Make Your Own Massage Candles

If you're making your own some of the best fragrances include lavender, eucalyptus, and frankincense. For the price of a massage at the spa invest in quite a few high-quality essential oils. You’ll then be ready to us this recipe to make tranquil, soothing, yummy-smelling DIY massage candles to have at your fingertips whenever you want a relaxing massage. Similar to the way you'd add essential oils to your bath water, you should avoid "hot" oils like cinnamon, oregano, and thyme. And, if you have sensitive skin, steer clear of "warm" oils including peppermint.

How to Use a Massage Candle

Of course you know how to light a candle, but you’ll get the most enjoyment out of your massage candle if you follow these directions:

  1. Light the candle and enjoy the mood and scent until you’re ready to use the nourishing oils.
  2. Allow the candle long enough to burn evenly across the top, at least 15-30 minutes.
  3. When you’re ready to use the warm oil, gently blow out the flame. Make sure its at just the right temperature
  4. Let the warm oil cool for two minutes to a comfortable temperature.
  5. Drip, pour, paint, or smooth the essential oil on your partners body (or yourself). Keep the oil on the outside – it’s not a safe lubricant and can irritate the most sensitive spots.
  6. Enjoy an erotic multi-sensory experience and the scent lasts.
  7. Rinse if you’d like. Repeat often.

And of course, always keep candle flames away from flammable materials.
