These low temperature candles will create a hot licking sensation without burning the skin. Exotic Spa Candles are made using highly refined paraffin wax to create a sensual product that has similar properties to the wax used for spa treatments. These candles are designed for sensual, soothing sensation, softening and warming the skin they are applied to. Never use general purpose candles for dripping on the skin! Typical carnauba wax candles melt at 180°F/ 82°C, which is still much too hot for human skin, and beeswax candles can melt at temperatures as high as 212°F / 100°C which is enough to boil water! Paraffin wax also varies, with some forms melting as high as carnauba wax.
