The Sexy Side of Soy

Jimmyjane is a company that makes many sexy products, but when I planned a romantic getaway recently I knew that there was one that would really put a fire under my man.

The company’s Ember massage candles are hot in every sense of the word. Made of 100 percent soy, as the candle burns the room is bathed in candlelight and the melting soy turns to a liquid that doubles as scented massage oil.

Sound dangerous? It is, but not in the way you might think. Soy melts at a much lower temperature than wax; once the candle is snuffed out, the soy remains a warm – not burning hot – liquid that can be poured directly onto the skin.

I can’t promise you won’t get burned, but it won’t be by this candle.

The clean burning candles are paraffin-free, lead-free, and use natural cotton wicks. Each candle comes housed in a beautiful porcelain container with a pour spout, which can be reused when the candle has been blown out for the last time.

The Ember candle comes in six scents. While they normally retail for $55, the candles are currently on sale for $25. Pick one up. Your love life will thank you.

    Awesome. As long as my girlfriend trusts me to pour this on her skin. I checked out their site, but don’t see how you can by refills for just a candle. The porcelain will go to waste with me otherwise.

    Hi Nicholas:

    I have seen people use the porcelain vessel as a vase afterwards or to store cotton balls and other supplies in the bathroom. Thanks for the comment. ~Heather

    Hi. I have heard of these type of massage candles. Although I haven’t tried this one, I’ve used Scandle Massage Candles that actually make refill candles for their canisters with a plantable hang tag.
