Scandle Candle Review and Giveaway!

Lotion with a wick? ohhhhh yes! I am so eternally happy that I stumbled across a product called Scandle. Doesn't the name itself sound intriguing? I sure thought so and I had to find out more! Scandle is like any other candle. You light it. It smells divine. You pour it on skin and rub it in...wait a minute! That is NOT like any other candle, and I am in love! I honestly had never heard of such a thing! How genius though! You light it, you set the mood and the massage oil is right there in the melted portion of the candle!

Scandles are FDA approved with all the moisturizing ingredients you would expect to see in a lotion, but with a perfect aroma and spa ambiance!

As cool as I thought it was, I was also terrified! How do I do this? Will it hurt? I mean hot wax...I am not exactly into torture in the bedroom! No worries though! I worried for nothing! It doesn't hurt one bit. Scandles use cosmetic grade soy oil instead of commercial grade waxes like parrafin and beeswax. It feels surprisingly good! I mean, a massage should feel good, right? I reviewed the Oatmeal, Milk and Honey scent and I was in heaven! I love that these Scandles are hypoallergenic too!

So here is what you do:

Light the Scandle for about 30 minutes so you get a nice, even layer of melted wax oil. This ensures that the candle burns evenly each time you use it. Once you do that, blow out your flame! I feel this is a very important step! Pour a small amount of wax onto the desired area. Scandles say to use a quarter size drop first and I agree! If you were nervous like me, then a quarter will do, until you love it and want more! When you are done, let your candle cool and it will re-congeal to a solid state. You can also choose not to burn your candle and use a spoon to scoop out a small amount and rub that into your skin. I personally think burning the candle and pouring the wax is half the fun! I also love that you get a room full of aroma!

I adored every second of my Scandle experience! The massage rocked! My skin was baby soft. I felt so luxurious! I did NOT feel greasy or slimy like some massage oils make you feel! This really rubbed in more like a very long lasting lotion! I loved it!

Scandles are sold in 10 ounce ceramic jars with a pour spout and there is an awesome eco twist! You can buy refills for those jars! I love that! I personally got to review the travel tin that comes with a reduce, reuse, recycle band! So cute! The 10 ounce jar sells for $22.95 and will burn for 30 to 40 hours! That is a lot of massages! The refills are only $12.99! Such a great deal! The travel tins are 4 ounces and burn for 15 to 30 hours! These sell for $13.95! I cannot wait to buy more of these, not only for myself, but for amazing gifts as well!



This is a picture of what the refill looks like, but that is the jar as well. When you make your first purchase, the Scandle comes in the jar!



Here is a shot of the 4 ounce travel tin!

I highly recommend these massage oil candles! Purchase yours here!
