I love massages, and don’t get them nearly enough. My husband enjoys them as well. We’ve tried a few massage candles and have enjoyed the the oil being in a candle, warming up before being rubbed into back muscles. I’m always looking for new scents and was happy to receive the Delight Massage Candle from Babeland to review.
This massage candle comes packaged in a cardboard canister. The lid lifts off about halfway down, and the package can be reused for storing the candle if desired. Product information is on the back.
I received the Mango Vanilla massage candle. When unlit it smells mostly like vanilla, with the barest hint of mango. When lit, you can smell the mango a bit more, but it’s still pretty muted. I would have liked the scents to be a bit more mixed, but it does smell nice, and the scent is not overpowering. The scent does a good job of filling the room.
The candle is 2 1/2″ tall and 2 1/2″ wide, and in a clear glass container with a bit of an hourglass shape to it. The candle contains 3 oz of oil, which contains soy wax, shea butter, and fragrance. The container also comes with a box of Babeland matches, so you can get to using your candle right away.
Once lit, the candle should burn for 30 to 40 minutes to melt enough oil for use. Then simply blow out the candle and pour the oil onto the skin from the holder. It’s warm, but not too hot or uncomfortable to use right away. The oil is thin, but not greasy, and you can smell the mango more at this point. The oil absorbs nicely into the skin, and leaves the skin soft, smooth, and lightly scented.
The candle burns down in the center, so if the sides haven’t melted you’ll want to gently push the softened oil down to keep the candle more level.
So, Is It Worth It? Yes! This is a relatively inexpensive massage candle, and I really liked the smell and feel of the oil. It absorbed nicely and I loved how it made my skin feel. My husband didn’t mind the scent – he found it much nicer than floral. The only thing I wish this had was some sort of pour spout on the glass. I didn’t have trouble pouring it out, but it tended to drip a bit over the side of the candle.
