What is a lotion candle?
Our lotion candles are natural products that not only create enchanting ambiance, but also transform into a warm, rich, body lotion. Essential oils and cosmetic-grade soy wax work to hydrate, calm, and heal your skin.
Element Tree lotion candles combine the ambiance and aroma of a candle with a nourishing moisturizer for the whole body. Our lotion candles are individually hand-poured in the mountains of Asheville, NC. Our proprietary blends are made with ingredients including coconut oil, shea butter, rose hip oil, and vitamin E.
How do lotion candles work?
It's simple! After burning your candle, simply blow it out, dip your fingers into the melted wax and massage into your skin. You will be amazed at the results and healing qualities.
Our Candles are Rich in Botanical Oils and Vitamins
Our lotion candles are made with natural ingredients including coconut oil, grape seed oil, shea butter, rose hip oil, and vitamin E. Grape seed oil works to reduce wrinkles and scars, tighten skin, and treat acne. Coconut oil helps to heal wounds and treat dry skin. Shea butter is great for anti-aging and can increase circulation. It is also excellent for eczema and psoriasis. Vitamin E can nourish and protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
In 2017, we made the addition of rose hip oil to all our candles, which has truly taken our product to the next level. Rose hip is harvested from seeds of rose bushes grown in Chile. Ancient cultures such as the Egyptians, Mayans, and Native Americans have used rose hip, known for its powerful healing properties. Rose hip helps to protect the skin from age spots, eczema, acne scarring, and contains unique anti-aging properties.
Five Benefits of Using Rose Hip Oil
This benefit comes from the oil's antioxidants and its ability to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. Vitamins C and A stimulate collagen production.
PROTECTION FROM AGE SPOTS
The antioxidants found in rose hip oil combat free radicals that cause sun damage. Vitamin A, combined with the oil's essential fatty acids, can help improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation.
HELPS WITH ECZEMA & ACNE SCARRING
The essential fatty acids found in rose hip oil can help reduce the effects of eczema and reduce scarring by promoting skin regeneration.
BOOST THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
A top source of vitamin C, rose hip oil helps treat infections and boost the body's immune system.
HELPS TREAT OSTEOARTHRITIS
Rose hip helps to reduce the inflammation in the body. People who suffer from osteoarthritis can benefit from using rose hip oil regularly (University of Maryland, 2018).
