FAQ for Immune Candle BODY

Why is it called the Immune Candle BODY?
The Boku Immune Candle BODY uses the same proprietary blend of organic essential oils found in the original Boku Immune Candle, but is formulated specifically for massage.  Casting a beautiful warm glow, the gentle flame will soon yield a pool of the most luxurious massage oil in the world and fill the air with our soothing, signature aroma.  In just 10-15 minutes, you will have enough warm oil to begin your massage.
What does it smell like?
Our product development team worked for more than one year with industry leading experts to formulate the proprietary blend of essential oils used in the Immune Candle BODY. The dominant notes in our blend are eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint which give the candle a luxurious and comforting aroma. These organic essential oils combined with shea butter and jojoba oil emit a much more subtle fragrance and aroma than synthetic chemicals and perfumes found in most popular candles. The Immune Candle BODY is the perfect choice for an unforgettable journey that will leave your skin silky smooth and irresistibly scented.
How long will my Boku Immune Candle BODY last?
The Immune Candle BODY will last through 5 full body massages!
Is it safe to use the melted candle directly on my skin right after blowing out the flame?
Most definitely! Once the flame is extinguished, the lotion will be the temperature of a warm bath and ready to be massaged into the skin. When using this luxurious moisturizer, please keep in mind to never put your fingers in the warm lotion while the candle is still burning. Also note you should never use other candles in the same manner as the Boku Immune Candle BODY.
How long should the wick be?
There are a few simple steps for getting the maximum enjoyment from your Immune Candle BODY: The wick doesn’t burn completely and needs to be trimmed before relighting to be 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch in length. This will minimize soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left by the previous burn.
First Time lighting what do I do?
Light the candle, and let it burn for approximately 10 minutes or until a full melt pool has formed. Extinguish flame, gently drizzle a small amount of warm massage oil into your hands before massaging into the skin for a wonderful, luxurious experience.
Is it safe for kids & pets?
As with all candles, the lit Boku Immune Candle BODY should not be left unattended with children or pets due to safety hazards. Please see “instructions” for further safety information.
Is it sold in stores?
With the exception of medical wellness centers and the world’s finest spa resorts, BōKU® products are only available online, shipped directly to consumer’s homes.
Why no Paraffin?  
We specifically avoided the use of Paraffin wax due to the many dangers of burning such candles in your home. Unfortunately, most people are unaware of what paraffin wax really is. The strong scents typically accompanied with Paraffin wax candles can often be alluring…but is that worth burning petroleum leftovers in your home? Yes, that’s right. Paraffin wax is nothing but a bi-product of the refining process to make gasoline. (Just add some industrial strength bleach and some other ingredients and presto!) As you can probably imagine, burning a bi-product of petroleum is not in the best interest of your health and that of your loved ones. Did you know Paraffin wax emits 11 known carcinogens while burning? These include benzene, toluene, and formaldehyde (also a known respiratory irritant). Burning paraffin wax in your home exponentially decreases the air quality of our homes, and increases toxins going into our lungs.
Are the Candles made in the USA?
Yes! The Boku Immune Candle BODY is proudly manufactured America!
My candle isn’t melting evenly & favoring one side, why & how do I fix it?
More than likely this is due to the wick not being centered. Extinguish the flame and center the wick; allow wax to set up and then re-light.
My candle has a big hole around the wick?
This is referred to as “tunneling.” If you don’t allow the wax to pool on the first burn of your Immune candle (or any candle), you may experience “tunneling.” This means the wax simply burns down the center of the candle, leaving wax on the side of the jar. It is essential to let the candle burn upon first lighting for three hours or until a complete melt pool is established to the edge of the candle container.
I see you use organic essential oils, how are these different from synthetic oils?  
Our essential oils are drawn from natural, organic plants. These essential oils are basically the DNA of plants, the oils being their “life blood.” Some plant DNA contains beneficial qualities. Synthetic oils are manmade and likely contain toxic substances that are harmful to our health.  
Will your candle produce that toxic black soot?
Nope, no black soot here! Due to the all natural ingredients used in the Boku Immune Candle BODY, it will not create black soot. The only thing the Boku Immune Candle BODY will produce is a lovely scent, warming feeling, and clean air! The black soot you see forming around your candles & on the walls or ceilings of your home, is a bi-product of burning wax such as Paraffin. This soot contains some of the same toxins found in diesel fuel! We are proud to say that because we use all organic coconut wax and organic essential oils, you will not experience that unsightly and hazardous soot that comes from burning Paraffin wax candles.
I have asthma and/or allergies. Will burning the Immune Candle BODY affect my breathing?
We use only the finest, all natural, organic essential oils and ingredients. However, different fragrances affect people in different ways. If the Immune Candle BODY should trigger asthmatic, allergic or any other adverse reaction, we recommend avoiding it. It’s always a good idea to consult your medical professional.
Is there anybody who shouldn’t use the Immune Candle BODY?
If you have any known allergies to the ingredients commonly used in bath and body products, we encourage you test the product on a small area of skin before applying to large areas of your body.
