Body Candle Crazy

 

Pinterest. Instagram. VSCO. You can't scroll through one social media site without catching a glimpse of what is the latest craze: Body Candles.

These are simply candles moulded into the shape of a woman's body. 

Many of these candles started out with the same 'Kim K' type of figure in a white/beige shade of wax, but many shops have begun to create curvy figures, pregnant women and male versions of the candle too in a variety of colours!
