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.
