Massage Candles Update 8/11/16
The results are in!
They loved the ultra moisturizing massage candles!
The one drawback was the wicks.
I bought basic braided wicks from a craft store and it turns out they burn/smoke quite a bit and also do not melt the entire candle surface.
I needed something that would burn a little cleaner and heat more surface area. Now, I will test out wooden wicks.

I have a new request from my amazing manicurist, yet again! He has asked me to create a new product; a massage candle! Massage candles are a fantastic way to light up the room and create a calming atmosphere. They provide a subtle aromatic fragrance and contain ingredients that make an excellent massage oil alternative that is luxurious and moisturizing!
I cannot believe I have never thought of this before, my lotion bars have nearly the same ingredients. I have looked up a few recipes using soy wax, coco butter and almond oil. However, I feel better using beeswax. I will still try the almond oil, but this time used coconut oil and shea butter!
I cannot wait to test it out!
