Flickering Touch Massage Candle

LELO Flickering Touch Massage Candle —— $29.15

I’m a sucker for scented candles. I have them all over the house. I once took a class in aromatherapy and I learned a lot about how essential oils, and other aromatic compounds can alter a person’s mind, mood, cognitive function or health.

So when Dr Dick offered me the Flickering Touch Massage Candle to review I knew I was in for a treat. I am very fond of my LELO pleasure objects. I reviewed The SORAYA way back in January and was so impressed that I’ve picked up two others LELO vibes since. One I gave as a gift. I know, how generous!

The Flickering Touch Massage Candle did not disappoint. It lives up to the LELO name in every way. Lets start with the packaging. It came in a simply elegant black box, with mauve and black accents. And all the packaging is biodegradable. The candle itself comes in a gorgeous black glass container with a designer silver lid. It dresses up anywhere you put it.

I received the Vanilla & Crème De Cacao candle, but there are two other candles in the LELO line — Black Pepper & Pomegranate and Snow Pear & Cedarwood. (Please Mr LELO, send us others to review!)

The candle is made from natural soy wax, shea butter and apricot oil. And because it is a massage candle as well as aromatherapy, when you dab it on your skin, or your lover’s skin, the effect is outstanding. It absorbs nicely, like a fine body oil should. And it leaves your skin delectably smooth and lightly fragranced.

If you are into sensual massages and romantic play the Flickering Touch Massage Candle is just the thing for you. My husband and I went to the San Juan Islands for an amorous weekend get away for our anniversary last month. I made certain that the Flickering Touch Massage Candle would accompany us. My husband liked the scent too. He’s sometimes critical of my aromas, because he claims some are too sweet or feminine. But he liked the Vanilla & Crème De Cacao just fine.

Flickering Touch Massage Candle starts out solid, as you’d expect. But once lit, it rapidly begins to melt into a pool of oil. I suggest burning it for about a half hour before you plan to use it so you a nice pool of oil to use in your sensual massage. Unlike a wax-based candle, a soy-based candle burns at a lower temperature so the oil is never hot, just wonderfully warm.

Once you have the desired pool of oil, extinguish the candle. Never pour wax from a candle while it is lit! Simply tip the jar letting the oil drizzle either directly onto your partner’s body or into your palm before applying. Then have yourselves a ball. We did! Once you are finished playing, replace the lid to keep the candle clean and retain its aroma.

If elegance and sensuality are your thing, I highly recommend the Flickering Touch Massage Candle. You will not be disappointed.
