FAQ

What is a Body Envy Moisturizing Soy Candle?

A Body Envy moisturizing candle is a fragrant hand-poured candle that, when burned, melts to create a healthy body massage oil that can be used to enhance the healthy of your skin.

What makes Body Envy Candles different than some of the other massage candles?

Many other massage candles are made mostly with soy wax which can feel greasy and heavy on the skin. Our moisturizing soy candles are produced with cosmetic-grade soy, shea butter, and emollient oils such as jojoba, coconut and sweet almond. All fragrances are body safe. Our wicks are cotton and contain no lead or zinc.

How do I use Body Envy moisturizing candles?

Simply light the Body Envy candle and wait about 20-30 minutes until melt pool forms. Extinguish candle, dip fingers into oil and apply directly to the skin. If you would rather not burn your candle, scoop a little out using a spoon or finger and simply rub it directly on your skin!

Will I burn myself?

The only thing that can burn is the actual flame. By using cosmetic grade soy oil rather than traditional waxes, such as paraffin or beeswax, we are able to offer a candle in which amounts of the safe, comfortable, and warmed oil can be directly massaged into the skin , leaving the skin smooth, soft, and pleasantly scented.

Where can I use the lotion?

The all-natural ingredients are safe for the skin and can be used all over the body. We recommend our lotion for anywhere you would use any other beauty product… except the hands. It has wonderful effects on dry scaly spots like elbows and heels. Try it on your cuticles too for a treat you won’t find at the manicure table! Body Envy candles are also great for a sensual or therapeutic massage. Remember to use sparingly….a little goes a long way. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.

Why are there not any color choice or is it just the natural color?

While there are synthetic dyes that would color the blend, none of them have been evaluated and found to be skin safe.

What’s the difference between your body lotion candle and a regular candle with paraffin?

Body Envy moisturizing candles do not contain paraffin or other petroleum-based ingredients. Paraffin candles are a petroleum by-product and can leave behind a black residue and emit smoke containing residue particles. The residue not only adversely affects walls, ceilings, curtains, and carpets; it also diminishes your air quality and enters your lungs. Some people claim they get headaches from burning candles; those headaches may be caused by the large amounts of synthetic fragrances in traditional candles. NEVER try to use just any candle as you would a Body Envy moisturizing candle.

I’m allergic to nuts and your candle has shea butter in it. Should I use it?

No, the nut oil may cause a reaction to nut allergy sufferers.

What is your return policy?

We do not accept any returns at this time. However, if your product is shipped and damaged, we will replace it with a product of equal value.

Are the candles available wholesale or private labeling?

Yes, we are looking for retail store and salon owners to rep our products! Please contact us for wholesale information at info@bodyenvycandles.com.

Can you make candles for my bridal shower or other special event?

Yes! We can also help with special events such as weddings, baby showers or fundraisers. Please contact us at info@bodyenvycandles.com for more information.

How does the soy oil feel on your skin?

Silky Smooth! Not waxy or sticky. The warm oil absorbs better into your skin than a cold lotion. The massage oil will penetrate deeply to help smooth and moisturize your body.
