Body Positive Candles: 10 Decorative Candles Shaped like Body Parts
As the candle industry grows, lots of candle makers are now creating candles shaped like body parts! The trend began with female busts and has since developed to represent a wider range of body types, including male torsos, curvier females and pregnant figures, along with isolated body parts like legs, hands and lips. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite body positive candles shaped like body parts to celebrate bodies in all shapes and sizes…
Safety note: Lots of these body-positive candles are intended to be used for decorative purposes. If you would also like to burn them, be sure to place the candle on a non-flammable tray to collect any dripping wax and monitor it as it burns.
