The Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s massage candle is a genuine beauty treatment, made of pure plant oils and prime emollient butters. It is lit as a normal candle and the wax begins to melt. The ecological wick is made of pure cotton and paper. It is not subject to any chemical treatments, so its color is natural and unaltered, and combustion is optimal. The melting point is at body temperature, so there is no risk of burning the skin. The singular porcelain container, decorated with gold leaf and suggestive of an antique apothecary mortar, was specially designed by Filippo Burresi, architect.
