Eco-Stocking Stuffer Alert: Stick a Scandle in the Stocking

Here’s another budget and eco-friendly stocking stuffer: Scandle Body Candles. These amazing candles burn and melt at low temperatures and the candle “wax” can be poured onto the body and used as an oil for massages, spa treatments, manicures and pedicuresĀ or just for pure enjoyment at home. And the candles are less than $25 and will fit perfectly in a holiday stocking.

Scandle candles are made with natural ingredients including shea butter, soy butter, jojoba, and vitamin E.

Scandle has even created a line just for the 2009 Holiday season:

Scandle’s Holiday Gift line will feature Scandle’s Holiday Spa Treats, which includes a 10oz Scandle Body Massage Candle in refillable ceramic canister and a 10oz Refill Candle; Scandle’s Body Massage Stone and Candle holder, which includes a body massage stone that doubles as a Scandle Candle holder; and Scandle’s Sole Survivor and Helping Hand foot and hand treatment kits, which includes a 4oz travel Scandle Body Candle and moisturizing gloves or socks.

Made from 100% vegan and natural ingredients, including soy butter, shea butter, jojoba, vitamin E, & essential oils; ScandleĀ® Body Massage Candles burn at 2 degrees above body temperature to produce a soothing and healthy body oil that can be used to enhance the health of the skin, while simultaneously providing fragrance and ambiance to any setting. The Scandle features refillable/reusable canisters and packaging made from recycled materials.

Are you hooked yet? I am.

Can I get several stockings full of these candles (along with half naked men with abs of steel to rub the Scandle wax onto my body? Now that would be a Christmas present to remember.)

So if you have someone on your list into candles and massages then maybe a Scandle would be the perfect stocking stuffer.
