Edible Candle — Watermelon 4 oz. $15.99
Angie: I couldn’t agree more with the Dr D! I was thrilled when asked to review these two candles — the Heart-Shaped Massage Body Candle — Naked in the Woods and the Edible Candle — Watermelon. They are scrumptious.
I have very sensitive skin, so I have to be very careful what products I use. Initially, I was concerned that fragranced products, like these, would not sit well on my skin. So I decided to visit the Earthly Body website and do some homework before my first use. I was delighted to learn that all their products are vegan and nontoxic.
My first use was right after my bath. I lit a candle, which fragranced the room while I enjoyed my bath. Naked in the Woods has a light earthy sent with just a hint of pine. the Edible Candle — Watermelon is…well all watermelon-y. Is there such a word? Depending on my mood, I had a choice between earthy and fruity. By the time if finished my bath, there was enough liquefied oil to generously moisturize my legs. This is a much finer oil than what I usually use, so much more silky.
One thing I did not know is that Hemp Seed Oil is known as ‘nature’s most perfectly balanced oil,’ and has the highest concentration of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) of any essential oil. I guess that explains the rich texture of the melted candle.
As a special treat, I used the Naked in the Woods candle on my husband. He probably would have resisted had I asked him first. Scented things are not his bag. He’s such a guy! But I had the candle lit at our bedside. (The scent is not overwhelming in any way.) We were feeling amorous; and I said I wanted to treat him to a little back rub. He never says no to a massage. I extinguished the candle and dribbled the warm oil on his back. I poured it from about one foot above his back, so that by the time it hit him it was only slightly warmer than his skin. He moaned with delight as I rubbed it in.
The economy being what it is, I believe more and more of us will be turning to simple, inexpensive pleasures that can be enjoyed at home. These Earthly Body candles have only whet my appetite to try some of their other products. (Hubby dear, if you’re reading this, as I know you are, the New Year will be a whole lot more sensual if I find a big gift pack of Earthly Body goodies under the tree. Hint, hint!)
One final thing, and I know that Dr Dick agrees with me on this, we are both delighted to see that Earthly Body, besides being an earth-friendly, totally GREEN company, it also has a much bigger social conscience. The founders of the company have created a charitable foundation called The Get Together Foundation. How fantastic is that?
