An erotic massage might seem like the opening to a cheesy romance movie, but the reality is it can be a great way to unwind and excellent foreplay, using a massage candle makes the whole thing a lot more enjoyable, as well as making your skin feel amazing too.

It's a sensual experience in more than one way since it's all about touch and smell. There's no need to fret either, there won't be any second-degree burns in order.

Massage candles make a great gift and they're a great way to try something new in the bedroom.

How do massage candles work?

They're typically made from a blend of oil and natural waxes, and they're infused with aromas that help you unwind and relax.

As you burn the candles, the gorgeous scent not only fills the room but creates a warm oil that you can rub on your body.

These candles are designed to burn at a lower temperature compared with the normal candles you fill your home with. So it's safe to apply the liquid to the skin.
