Starting 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. Now we’re older and our hot wax fascination has moved to the bedroom. 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 candle. 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.
