A massage candle is perfect to use in the cold, winter months.

Enriched with nourishing and softening oils, alongside botanical extracts, they help to keep the skin beautifully smooth and conditioned.

As their name suggests, massage candles are great for massaging into the skin, making them great if you have sore or achy muscles. Thanks to the pool of oil that's created once heated up, they are perfect for working into the skin and helping to ease tension and any muscular problems.

Which is the best massage candle for me?

OSKIA Skin Smoothing Massage Candle

OSKIA's Skin Smoothing Massage Candle is made with the finest ingredients and botanical extracts to help nourish, smooth and soften the skin. Rose de mai is the star ingredient, alongside a blend of vitamins, minerals and omegas to condition and keep the skin beautifully healthy and glowing.

Once the wick has been lit, leave the candle to heat up and create a pool of oil, which can then be poured over the skin for a soft, smooth finish.

It's perfect for filling the room with a beautiful scent too; thanks to the coconut oil and rose extracts, the fragrance is relaxing and comforting.

NEOM Organics Tranquility Intensive Skin Treatment Candle

The NEOM Organics Tranquility Intensive Skin Treatment Candle is perfect to use if you are feeling particularly stressed and need help getting off to sleep.

The scent is made up of beautiful sleep-inducing essential oils such as lavender, jasmine and sweet basil, which work to help you unwind and relieve any tension and anxiety.

The massage candle itself is made with cocoa butter, alongside soybean and almond oils to help nourish and condition dry and dehydrated skin. Once lit, the candle only needs to be left burning for 30 minutes before being blown out and left to cool for 2 minutes. After that, massage the oil into your skin for a supremely soft, healthy and smooth finish.
