• Erotic massage is the perfect way to connect physically and emotionally with your lover. For many of us, being touched by a lover is both comforting and arousing, so it makes sense that massage, one of the most intimate kinds of touch, is a great way to relax the body, soothe the mind and boost your sexual happiness.

    Fantastic as a sexy gift to indulge your partner, massage candles bring with them the promise of quality time and lavish attention. Why not treat yourself and your lover to a massage candle?

    Massage candles themselves blend all-natural waxes and oils (such as soy wax and shea butter) and seductive fragrances and most are lickable - ideal for foreplay. Massage candles have been specially formulated to melt at a low, body-safe temperature so they can be drizzled over your partner for a deeply moisturising and seductive massage.

    How to Use a Massage Candle

    Set the scene for your massage by lighting the candle and letting the aroma fill the room. It takes between 15 - 30 minutes for the candle to melt enough for you to start your massage - you'll no doubt find a way to pass the time.

    Once liquified, the candle will transform into a slowly absorbing, high-slip massage lotion that nourishes and hydrates the skin. Blow the flame out, test the temperature of the pool of oil with your finger and then you're ready to play.

    Drizzle or drip the sensuous warm oil directly onto your partner's body, or into the palm of your hand and start your massage. The nourishing natural waxes and oils will smooth and soothe your lover as you work it into their body.

    If you leave the candle to cool it will set on its own, ready for the next seductive session, or re-light it for your turn to be massaged!

    Massage candles should not be used as a personal lubricant or with condoms. For a massage lotion that can be used as a lube and is condom-safe, you can use Durex Play 2 in 1 Massage Lubricant or even silicone lube.
