How to Use Massage Candles

Wondering how to use massage candles? Skinny Dip Candles are easy and fun! And rest assured, they will not burn you! Because of the ingredients in Skinny Dip Candles, they have a very low melt point. When fully melted they’re just 102 degrees — not even as warm as a hot tub.

How to Use Massage Candles -- Three Skinny Dip Candles in PhotoTo use your Skinny Dip Candle, simply light it and let a melt pool form.  Extinguish the flame! (As you know, the flame itself is always hot so please blow it out before using.) You can dip your fingers directly into the melted oils, or you can use the little scoop that is included inside of each tin to dip a small amount out to use. 

Use the warmed lotion on your cuticles, elbows, heels, or other dry skin areas on the body.  You can also pour the melted oils out of the tin and use the Skinny Dip Candle for massage. Use sparingly. A little bit goes a long way!

Skinny Dip Candles were formulated with the input from professional massage therapists and are used in professional practices across the U.S. Skinny Dip Candles are a fabulous alternative to traditional massage oils.

Regardless of how and where you choose to use the Skinny Dip Candle, only use the amount you need.  Any unused ingredients will set up again in candle form, ready for your next use. For best results, always trim the wick to 1/4″ prior to each use.

If any ingredients are not melted when you use the candle, you will start to see a well form down the middle of the candle. You can push this unmelted portion back in toward the wick so it will melt the next time you use the candle.

You can also use the Skinny Dip Candle without melting it. When “set” like a candle, use the scoop or the back of a fingernail to remove some unmelted mixture. Then simply use it as you would a body balm. It will melt very easily as you begin to massage it into your skin. This is a very quick and convenient way to experience skin moisturizing benefits when lighting the candle simply isn’t possible or practical.

Important: Never put fingers into the candle while burning. And please, always keep your massage candle away from children, pets and flammable objects.
