The flickering light from this hand-poured Maude Burn No. 2 Massage Candle will add ambiance to your room as it heats the jojoba and soybean oils from which it is made.

The oils burn at a lower temperature than traditional candles, so the melted oils are warm, not hot. The 4-ounce candle burns up to 30 hours, and the 2-ounce candle burns up to 15 hours.
