Default Lotion Candles?

I am not a wax/candle expert by any means. But, yesterday I was at the Renaissance Festival and came across a booth that was selling TONS of Lotion Candles.

I have never heard of lotion candles, so you can imagine my double-take.

The candles are made of shea butter and soy wax. You light it, let the wax melt and then dip your finger into the candle and message the wax into your skin.

(sort of made me think only people who are into that -kinky- kind of stuff would buy them, but they were selling out of every scent!)

The candles didn't seem to have a very strong hot or cold throw, but same wax as a lotion was amazing!
Felt great, amazing scent retention. My hands smelled great hours later.

I found recipes online, but just wanted to know if anyone made them and if there are any tips/tricks? Not sure if they fit in my product line (they seem like they would be difficult to sell online without trying them in person). But I'm curious to know how it works & if they sell well with your customers?

I saw this a while back and saved it, but I haven't tried it out yet: http://www.naturesgardencandles.com/...le-recipe.html


If you do try it out, please let me know how it goes. I think the concept is really neat.
