A Drop in the Ocean Tacoma Zero Waste Sustainable Living Shop Lotion Candle

Massage Lotion Candle

Regular price$8.00

The delight and ambiance of a candle with the nourishing moisturization of a body lotion. Treat yourself to a little skin TLC, or share with a partner for a relaxing massage. The essential oil blend will transport you to a beach getaway; the lotion will leave your skin soft and touchable.


Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Soy Wax, Apricot Oil, Avocado Oil, Essential Oils for scent

To Use

Light the candle and let it burn until a pool of wax forms. Blow out the candle, dip your fingers into the melted wax, and massage into skin.

Protip: Always let the candle burn enough that the pool of wax is even across the top of the candle. Blowing out the candle while the pool is small will keep the candle from burning evenly and you'll end up with "candle tunneling," when the candle burns down the center leaving wasted wax around the outside.

Packaging + End of Life

This lotion candle is packaged in a reusable metal tin. When the candle burns out, wash and dry the tin. It can be reused or recycled with metal recycling.

Don't take our word for it...

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
