Babeland Body Massage Candle

I’m a sex blogger, a wife, and a mom. You all know that. But, what you may not know is that  I am a professional massage therapist by trade. So, when 
Babeland
 gave me a chance to review their Body Massage Candle, I was super excited!

The idea is that the wax from the candle melts into a blend of oil that you can use as a warm lubricant during a massage. I will admit, I was very curious to see if it was going to work as intended….after all, during a massage, I use plain old grape seed oil.

As a professional,  I had my concerns – Would it be waxy and gross? Would it be too hot? Would it smell funky? I can safely say, the Babeland Body Massage Candle is none of those things!

When I first opened the package, I noted how nice it smelled. The Pashmina scented candle had a powdery, lightly floral but not over the top, scent.  It wasn’t a subtle scent, but it also wasn’t overpowering. 

Encased in a glass jar, the candle is white and about 3oz. There are no markings on the outside of the jar, giving no indication it is anything more than a decorative scented candle.

I lit the candle (With the matches Babeland provided. Nice touch!) and let the flame melt the wax for a few minutes. The scent lightly filled the room and the wax turned into a warm oil that I was able to pour comfortably into my hands. It didn’t burn me and I was extremely surprised that it didn’t feel at all like wax in my hands. Made with soy wax and shea butter (and fragrance), it felt….well…like oil!

After rubbing my hands together to create an even layer of oil, I used my husband as a guinea pig. I applied the oil to his shoulders and I found that with a small amount (as pictured to the left, if you can make out the puddle in my hand) I could give a 15 minute shoulder massage, no problem. I didn’t have to constantly pour more into my hand to avoid a dry massage.

I asked him how it felt, and he said it felt very nice. He didn’t feel anything different than a regular massage – which is what I was looking for!

The only downside is that your hands can feel a bit sticky afterward, but that’s nothing a quick rinse under the sink wouldn’t fix.

I probably won’t use this candle at work, but I think this is a nice treat for a foot rub for my husband or a back rub for myself. I really enjoy it.  Thanks again to Babeland for giving me a chance to review this awesome candle!
