The skin-nourishing candle for self care, intimacy and massage
Skinny Dip Candles are a 4-in-1 candle, lotion, massage oil and body balm that provide a simple, tangible way to prioritize self care and foster meaningful romantic connection.
Our unique wax can be poured directly onto skin as a warm lotion that leaves skin smooth and moisturized or used as a luscious massage oil that absorbs quickly yet provides effortless long-lasting glide.
Skinny Dip Candles are a multi-sensory experience created to enhance personal wellness and intimacy using the aromatherapeutic qualities of scent, skin-nourishing properties of lotion, and physical and emotional benefits of massage.
Unique + Multi-Purpose
Our soy wax base is blended with skin-nourishing oils & butters. It burns at a cozy 102°F, so you can pour the wax directly onto skin as a lotion or massage oil. It's also great as a balm!
Made with all active and cosmetic-grade ingredients, Skinny Dip Candles are not only clean-burning, but they're ideal for moisturizing skin and have unmatched glide for massage.
Made with natural ingredients, our candles can be used to the very last drop. Even if there is wax left in the tin, simply scoop out like a balm, rinse the tin, and reuse or recycle it.
The Best Massage Candles I've Tried
I've used a lot of [massage candles] and most of them honestly suck. The consistency is weird or it absorbs too quickly, etc. This one though? Fantastic! It lasted the entire 30 minutes without needing reapplication. The scent was soft, strong and yet somehow not overpowering. Also my hands are EXTREMELY well moisturized. - Patty S.
My hubby and I have discovered the edible massage candles! Wow! Another fun massage candle for intimate times together. I highly recommend. The candles have enhanced our special times together. - Linda R.
Lots of Impressive Features
I was impressed with the longevity of the product as a massage oil (does not absorb too quickly, but does not dry tacky). A little goes a long way. The fact that it is applied warm is nice. I also appreciate that it does not irritate my extremely sensitive skin (the Bare Naked candle). - B.L.
Part of my Routine
I love using my lavender candle every morning. It's part of my routine to light at my desk and use the oil as hand moisturizer.
How do I use Skinny Dip Candles?
Skinny Dip Candles are very easy to use! They can, of course, be used as a normal candle simply by lighting it.
For use as lotion or massage oil, you'll need to:
- Light the candle
- Wait for a sizeable melt pool to form (here's our Burn Time Estimator)
- Extinguish the flame
- Pour or scoop the wax directly onto skin. You do not need to wait for the wax to cool! It will only warm to a comfortable 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Massage the wax into skin
For use as a balm, just scoop out the wax while it's cool using the provided scoop or the back of your thumbnail and rub it in.
Are these really safe for use on skin?
Absolutely! Skinny Dip Candles were formulated for use on skin, which is why we selected a soy base and added ingredients that are nourishing and moisturizing such as avocado oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and more! Even our fragrances are used in small enough quantities to remain non-toxic.
What do you use to scent your candles?
We have a large variety of fragrance choices. Some are synthetic and some are essential oil only, which is listed within the product descriptions as well as on the labels. Don’t worry,
though, all are used in skin-safe quantities so as not to be toxic!
(Note: This also means our candles are not made to scent a large room.)
Are the containers recyclable?
Our candle tins are 100% recyclable tin and we hope you will indeed reuse or recycle them! The wax can be used down to the very last drop by scooping and using as balm even after the wick runs out. You can then wash it out with dish soap and hot water and re-purpose to hold spices, office supplies, small gadgets and more! Or, simply drop in the recycling. We are also happy to take back tins to sanitize for re-use.
Are they clean-burning?
The short answer is yes.
But we highly encourage you to check out our BLOG POST about what clean-burning means and all the misunderstandings around this topic.
Do you sell in bulk?
We do! We have options for classic wholesale, private label and white label. Check out our Wholesale Page for more details!
