What is a Lotion Candle?
Soy wax for skin
A skin lotion candle earns the nickname "2 in 1 candle" because it doubles as a body moisturizer. The melting pool of candle wax produces the lotion.
When you light the soy wax candle, it creates a melt pool that reaches a temperature of about 125 degrees, which is just the right temperature.
There is no burn. If done right, it just feels warm and lovely.
- Treats hands, elbows, feet and flaky skin
- A fabulous warm and relaxing body massage wax
- A soothing cream for manicures and pedicures
- Moderate topical pain relief
Don't use any old candle wax on your skin
Unlike regular candles, lotion candles contain skin safe ingredients and fragrances. A regular scented candle is not made with skin safe ingredients.
Avoid trying to use a regular candle as a moisturizer because the non-skin safe ingredients may do more harm than good. Absorbing those ingredients into your skin could cause a nasty rash and inflammation. Stay away from using any candle wax on the skin that contains paraffin wax.
Combining CBD, lotions and candles requires a good formulation to create both a nice scent and act as a body moisturizer.
The ingredients and the lotion candle recipe can vary from manufacturer, but most (including Naturally Mignon) use a soy wax base with a combination of other oils and butters.
We hand pour Naturally Mignon candles and use soy wax, shea butter, organic coconut oil, and CBD isolate.
The CBD provides some topical pain relief and acts a an anti-inflammatory. However, there are many skin candle manufacturers that don't add CBD.
Soy wax is safe for the skin as long as the soy wax is pure and contains no contaminants. That being said, some people are allergic to soy or soy based products. It best to try on a small patch of skin to test any adverse reaction.

Do CBD candles do anything?
CBD infused candles adds topical pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant, renowned for its non-psychoactive properties.
When applied topically, CBD has the potential to interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) present in the skin.
The ECS plays a pivotal role in regulating various skin functions, including inflammation, sebum production, and cell growth. CBD's interaction with the skin's ECS receptors may result in multiple potential benefits.
Is candle wax good for your skin?
Yes and no.
If it is an ordinary fragrance candle then do not use on your skin. Regular candles usually contain paraffin and fragrances that are no skin safe.
If it is sold as a lotion candle then the answer is a resounding yes, but once again the ingredients do matter and vary by manufactuer.

Is soy wax safe for your skin? Is soy wax for skin usage?
Yes. A good quality soy wax is the best when mixing lotions and candles. Soy wax is a type of wax that is full of vitamin E and antioxidant properties.
It is the wax of choice because it is natural, clean, safe and soft. Soy wax also has a low melting point temperature and burns long and slow.
It helps lock in moisture, and people often use it to address skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, cracked skin, cracked heels, and rough cuticles. It is soft, creamy, and effective in these applications.
But there are a few things to consider:
Some soy waxes used in candles or other products may contain additives or fragrances that are not suitable for direct skin contact. Poor quality soy wax can have contaminants.
Soy wax has a low melting point, making it relatively safe for skin contact compared to paraffin wax, which has a higher melting point. The melt pool of a soy candles is usually around a desirable 125 degrees.
However, even soy wax can become too hot when melted, so be cautious when using it in its liquid form to avoid burns.
Some people may have sensitive skin and could experience irritation or redness when using any type of wax on their skin.
It's advisable to conduct a patch test by applying a small amount of melted soy wax to a small area of the skin to check for any adverse reactions before using it more extensively.
Ensure that the soy wax you plan to use is pure and free from contaminants. Low-quality or impure soy wax may not be suitable for skin contact.
