Even as kids we’ve swirled our fingers into a melted candle and peeled the smooth cooled wax off to watch it melt again in the hot wax. But now that we’re older, our hot wax fascination has gone in a more sensual direction. Here are a few tips for safe, sexy hot wax play:
- Use body candles! They have a lower melting temperature than household candles. Typically they melt at 130 degrees Fahrenheit which is equivalent to a hot shower. You may be thinking “I’ve never hurt myself when I’ve dipped my fingers in wax!” but that’s because our fingers are a lot tougher than the sensitive skin of our stomachs and thighs.
- Lay down a sheet you don’t care about that you can reserve for messy playtime experiences.
- Stick to white wax to prevent stains.
Some of our favorite body candles are:
Lovelights Massage Candle Trio: Bring refreshing citrus scents to the bedroom and experiment with creating an ambiance using all three at once.
Jimmyjane Afterglow candles: We looove these candles. Featuring light aphrodisiac scents and a easy-pour spout, this is a great choice for both beginners and more experienced hot wax aficionados.
Wild Strawberry Massage Candle: For a full sensory experience! Flavored, scented, and melts into a supple massage oil that feels fantastic on the skin.
