I've carried EarthyGlow soy lotion candles for a while now in the shop, but recently brought in their new 4-ounce travel tin candles, which are wonderful. The new tin packaging is recyclable, which I like...we're all about re-using and re-purposing these days!
Don't confuse soy lotion candles with regular soy candles...they're not the same thing. Lotion candles are specifically formulated to be used on the skin; regular soy candles are not.
If you've never tried a lotion candle, do yourself a favor and get one -- you'll like it! Made in the U.S. from soybeans, these candles don't just offer romantic light and wonderful fragrance, they also provide warm nourishing soybean oil that you can use on small areas of the body such as cuticles, elbows, knees, and heels, right where you need the most moisturizing.
When my first shipment came in, I snagged one for myself and took it home to try out. I lit the candle at dinnertime, and within a couple of hours the top 1/2 inch or so of the candle had liquefied into warm soybean oil. I blew out the flame, waited a few seconds, and dipped my fingers into the oil to rub on one heel (but not the other). The oil soaks into your skin quickly, especially if your skin is dry like mine was.
The next morning I woke up and checked my feet. The heel that had been rubbed with oil from the lotion candle the night before was soft and silky, like a baby's. The heel that hadn't been treated, well let's just say that it looked like I'd been running around barefoot all summer on the hot pavement.
So now whenever I feel like a little pampering, I fire up my lotion candle and give myself a mini-spa treatment. Ahhh....it's nice to be the queen!
I've recently added the soy lotion candles to my online store. They make perfect stocking stuffers, for men as well as women!
