Right from the start when I was looking into Chagrin Valley I have been eyeing these massage candles. On my last order I decided to spring for one and see if they are awesome as they sound.
As I’ve mentioned before a few times I have been looking into the world of non-toxic candles. Well, with these organic candle wicks and plant butter candle base you can’t get much more non-toxic if you tried! Plus, the scent of warmed cocoa and shea butters is something of a dream.
I have to admit that I was more than a little worried that the melted candle would be far too hot to use as massage oil, but it was surprisingly the perfect temperature. I found more success scooping out some of the melted butters to use, rather than pouring some out onto my hand. It is the most nourishing massage “oil” that I have ever tried or had used on me. It gave great slip, lasted a very long time, and left my skin feeling incredibly hydrated. Romantic Spirit is a warm scent that is only slightly flower-y, despite all of the flower essential oils contained in it; the clary sage balances out any prominent floral scent making for a great, gender-neutral aroma.
As it happens with most of the Chagrin Valley products I try, I am impressed by this one and I look forward to trying some of the other scents on my next order.
