The wax has an extremely low melting point. The instructions in the box suggest lighting the candle 30 minutes prior to use, but we found this was more time than needed, unless using the product for aromatherapy purposes. The wax melts into oil, which when poured onto the skin, feels warm without feeling too hot. It doesn’t return to the wax, but stays an oil that can be used easily for massaging. The ceramic bowl has a stylish shape, which is not only pretty but also functional. The candle’s shape allows for pouring out the oil with little mess. A detail that many other play candles are lacking and that we appreciated greatly.
The Nobu Exotic Massage Candle by Bodispa is one of the nicest looking massage candles you can find. The candle comes in a discrete package. It doesn’t look like it is designed for sensual play at all. However, the product description on the box speaks very highly of this candle’s ability to get you in the mood.
