Lotion Candles – The New Beauty Multi-Tasker

August 24, 2015

We’re in the age where we can only manage if we’re managing ten things at once. Multi-taskers, rejoice! The lotion candle, or massage candle, is changing the way we view our beauty regiments and our home decor. Lotion candles act as both a beautiful piece of aromatic home decor, and they multi-task by morphing into a body lotion. No more are the days of making our home and bodies luxurious in two different stores, not even two different products; the lotion candle is for today’s hectic lifestyle.

Filled with natural soy, spa fragrance oil, vitamin e oil, coconut oil, and shea butter, Candle Moments has created the Renew Candle, which serves as both an aesthetic home candle, with an aromatic spa scent, and lotion!  Once the candle has melted, let the wax cool slightly, and use the liquid to rub on your skin for a deeply nourishing and moisturizing lotion. This candle butter (as I like to call it) is a deep emollient infused with strong oils, so it’s best to use after a bath or shower, or before bed. A little goes a long way!

Many elite spas and massage therapists have begun using lotion candles to create a relaxing ambiance to both soothe the mind, and then the body. Along with the many known benefits of vitamin e, shea butter, and coconut oil, soy itself acts as a moisturizer and is a perfect conduit to maintain a warm enough temperature that it doesn’t burn the skin when used in massage.

You may find lotion candles to be more expensive than regular candles. The reason these candles cost more are because of the natural, raw materials used to create them. While pure soy is not extremely expensive, shea butter and 100% pure vitamin e oil is. The benefits of these ingredients far outweigh the cost, as many other lotions will use filler oils to avoid adding more natural ingredients – go ahead and check the ingredient list on the lotion bottle on your night-stand.

Always committed to purity, Candle Moments is opening up a whole new The Body Spa Collection for our clients who prefer cleaner products, where the ingredient list is completely recognizable. The Renew Candle was just the beginning; we also created the Refresh Lotion Candle which is scented like ocean mist. We only provide top-quality ingredients to ensure your skin is treated how it deserves to be.

The Hardest Part is Getting Started

August 31, 2018

I recently started going to the gym.  I’m not a big fan of the gym, in fact, I would dare say that it is slightly above medieval torture on my scale of things I loathe.  I have tried so many different ways to make the moments at the gym joyful – from classes, to workout … Continue reading The Hardest Part is Getting Started

Scents and Spirituality – Contacting the Dead with Candles?

July 30, 2018

I received a really interesting direct message on the Scents the Moment Instagram the other night: Initially, as you can tell from my response, I was a little taken aback. I mean, if you look at my Instagram, I have photos of products and my dog, Lucy – I never thought my branding would direct … Continue reading Scents and Spirituality – Contacting the Dead with Candles?
