I have a dream. It's not profound or anything that will save the Earth or impact human kind. It's a parents' Christmas Eve dream, really.
My dream is that,
my husband and I will be organized enough
to have all the children's presents wrapped and stashed away
before 3am on Christmas Eve.
Really, a gal can only take just so many viewings of A Christmas Story.
Last year was especially horrific, as my husband and I actually fell asleep while wrapping presents. Saved by my teenage daughter, who awakes every morning around 3am for a snack; I'm certain she gave us a traditional teen look while she finished the wrapping. Thus, a mortifying family Christmas tale was born, certain to be retold for years to come.
Rather than to shirk on one's parental holiday wrapping duties, or, nearly as terrible, finish wrapping the last gift in the wee hours of the morning, wouldn't it be wonderful to have everything complete and spend an easy evening with your other half, just enjoying each other's company?
Therein lies my dream, my Christmas Eve dream, filled with a distinct lack of wrapping paper and ribbon, but plenty of snuggling and a lovely sensual massage.
Cue the scentful Scandle Massage Candle! Scandle Massage Candles are a combination of body massage oil and fragrant spa candles, taking your massage to another, heavenly level.
beginning as a delightful soy candle that melts into a wonderful body lotion suitable for skin care or as a soothing massage lotion. There is nothing quite like a body candle massage, with the wonderful aroma of our massage oil aromatherapy candles working equally well as a room-enhancing scent and as a aromatherapy soy lotion for your skin.
To be honest, the first time my husband utilized a Scandle Massage Candle in giving me a massage, I was a bit leery.
Would the temperature be uncomfortable?
Would I end up feeling like a greased pig?
Would the candle residue stain our bedding?
After the massage, I found all my fears assuaged.
No, that is not quite accurate. Shortly into the massage, I couldn't have cared less, however, was pleasantly surprised to find, later, that my concerns were unfounded.
With over twenty two delightful scents, from the traditional, calming scents, to seasonal and exotic, there is a sensual scent for everyone on your holiday shopping list.
Most recently, I was provided with an opportunity to test the Scandle Travel Candle in Pumpkin Pie Spice. Both the ensuing massage and the scent were divine!
Scandle, a PETA approved and eco-conscious retailer, offers a full line of quality gift ideas, perfect for the season. I was quite enchanted by their new line of eco-friendly bags and clutches!
