Aromatic Body Candles

Spa-Valous Aromatic Body Massgae Candles, R180 each

          What are massage candles?  If you’re not familiar with them, you’re not alone. First appearing on the market this year, they are just now starting to gain a market presence in salons and spas, as unique corporate gifts as well as that exclusive gift for any man or woman.

          Whereas candles were once simply a functional way to light the dark, candles are now most commonly purchased to scent homes or to add a romantic or relaxing ambiance. 

          Massage candles are a new variety of candle serving several simultaneous functions. While they light a room, provide a delightful ambiance, and scent the immediate area with subtle fragrance, massage candles also contain cosmetic ingredients that make them an excellent body moisturizer offering anti-aging benefits and massage oil alternative.

          Because of their unique ingredients, a true massage candle will melt at just over body temperature. Much like a hot bath, they are comfortably warm, but not hot. 

The following list identifies a number of reasons why soy candles are preferable to paraffin wax candles:

No carcinogens are produced from burning soy candles.

Soy wax is non-toxic.

Little or no soot is produced from burning soy candles.

Soy candles will not discolor your walls or furniture with petroleum byproducts.

Soy wax is a renewable resource; petroleum is limited.

Soy wax is biodegradable.

Soy wax is water-soluble (no more messy cleanups).

Burning soy candles helps support the farmer.

Soy wax candles hold colour and scent better than paraffin.

Soy candles burn 30% to 50% longer than paraffin.

All natural organic soy candles
