Create a romantic atmosphere at home with soy wax massage candles!
As you know, Soy wax candles perfectly refresh the air in the room and burn out the bacteria in it, but when flavored with essential oils, they will not only fill the room with a wonderful aroma, but will also provide the pleasure of aromatherapy. However, did you know that during the cooking of soy wax candles, with the right ingredients, these candles can also be used in massages?
Here is a recipe for a romantic evening.
The main ingredients that will be needed to make these candles are soy wax, one of the base oils , your favorite essential oil, Shea or any other butter , a candle wick and a jar or glass to fill the resulting mixture.
Soy wax ( for container candles ) 77 gr
Shea butter 1 teaspoon
Avocado oil 2 teaspoons
Essential oil of your choice 20 drops (for mild aroma)
When the workplace is prepared, it is necessary to secure the wicks in the selected container. Melt the wax and avocado oil in a water bath, mix well. Shea butter does not like heat, in high heat it will clump into lumps, which is why shea butter should be added only when the container in which the wax and oil are heated is removed from the water and cooled slightly, slowly but thoroughly stirring in the melted wax and oil. Stirring slowly, allow the mixture to cool slightly and prepare the selected essential oils. The reason why we add the essential oils only before pouring the mixture into the container is that they are sensitive to heat and if the wax is too hot they will evaporate in the air. When the mixture has cooled slightly, add the essential oils and stir thoroughly. When the mixture is thoroughly mixed, we can fill it in the chosen dish and leave it to harden for a couple of hours.
P.s. For an even more interesting / richer candle, you can mix two different aromas of essential oils or experiment with adding different butters. It is important to follow the proportions: oils – wax – butter to get the required consistency.
