One of the things we love most about massage is that it is a free, low-tech source of pleasure. You don’t need anything other than a little coconut or almond oil to enjoy the full body benefits of receiving massage. Even a partner is optional – many of our massage techniques can be enjoyed as self-massage for a few soothing minutes of self-care.
So when we find a tool that makes massage even more pleasurable, we pay attention. Massage candles are one of our favorite tools for making at home massage feel as luxurious and indulgent as a spa massage.
Massage candles are made out of a blend of natural oils and soy wax. As they burn, the wax melts into a delicious pool of perfectly warmed massage oil, ready to be dripped onto your lover’s skin and massaged in with long delicious strokes. The warmth of the oil, the exotic scents and the flickering candlelight are the perfect combination of sensory pleasure, creating a rich and memorable experience with very little effort or expense.
We also love using massage candles as a communication tool: leave one by your lover’s pillow with a book of matches, and you send a clear signal that you are ready to connect and find time to be intimate.
We gathered together massage candles from our friends at Babeland, JimmyJane and Lelo. All three companies offer high-quality, deliciously scented massage candles, ranging from $14 to $32 at Babeland. Each candle burned nicely and offered thick, luxurious oil for full body massage. Ultimately, you should choose the massage candle that meets your budget, and a scent you love in the bedroom. Read on for our complete guide to the best massage candles for couples massage at home.
The Babeland Body Massage candles are affordable enough to use frequently. Consider these your weeknight massage candles. At just $14 for a generous 3 oz candle, you’ll be giving each other delicious back massage just for an excuse to use these gorgeously scented massage oil candles.
These candles also come in a single use 1 oz size, perfect for tucking into your getaway bag for a weekend away or a romantic overnight date. We also love the idea of slipping a tiny massage candle into your lover’s purse or briefcase, as a surprise token of pleasure to come!
Lelo is known for offering the ultimate in decadence and luxury for lovers – and their massage candles are no exception.
The Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Candle is presented in a beautiful black glass jar that will be right at home in the most upscale boudoir. The oil is rich and thick, and the scents are deep and heady. Cleanup is even sexy with Lelo: the pretty lid snuffs out the candle without any stinky soot and the jar wipes clean for storage.
Lelo Flickering Touch Massage Oil
If you are looking to create the ultimate stay-at-home night of couples massage, you’ll want to get acquainted with the entire Lelo line of massage and intimacy products.

JimmyJane Afterglow Candle
We love the shape of the Jimmyjane Afterglow Candle – the cute pucker on the side of the jar make it easy to pour the warm oil in a steady flow onto your lover’s skin. For those who love to play with the sensation of dripping wax, this is the candle to try.
The JimmyJane scents are a little more minimalist than the other lines, with offerings such as Bourbon, Dark Vanilla and Grapefruit. Instant date night: a steak dinner, cocktails and the Bourbon massage candle for dessert.
The included brush can be used to glide on the warm oil – this sensation almost feels like a large tongue running across your skin. Try using this natural massage oil candle both ways, but we suspect that most people enjoy the delicious heat of the oil being poured directly on their skin.
