All of Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles are hand-poured in small batches. They are made from 100% pure soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of fine soy-based oils. 


This hand-poured soy wax candle is in a reused can, meaning that no materials, energy, or waste goes into producing the container. I gather the cans from my own kitchen; friends, family, and customers; and a generous Chicago recycling center. I clean each one, transforming them from trash into a shiny, new candle holder.

Because soy wax washes out easily with soap and hot water, you can reuse the stylish can as a pen holder or planter.

fig + coriander rosewater + lavender + patchouli + garden dirt

Cool and earthy, this refreshing fragrance will transport you to the Midwest’s pride: The Great Lakes. The calming aqua scent calls to mind sparkling waters lapping on sandy shores, and serves as a reminder that it’s not always winter in the Midwest.


blood orange + mango + red currant + sandalwood

This scent is a zesty, juicy combination of blood orange and mango, complemented by the tartness of red currant and soft, warm notes of sandalwood. The bright, energizing scent brings to mind sipping organic juices and browsing rows of fresh fruit at a quaint neighborhood market that you secretly wish you could squat in.


grass + wild flowers

Combining the green, summery scents of grass and wildflowers, this fragrance makes the room smell like a meadow in bloom. Just light the candle, close your eyes, and pretend you’re Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. 


lemongrass + sage + mulberry + orange + cedar campfire

In this full-bodied scent, tangy top notes of orange and mulberry weave through lemongrass and sage, balanced by cedar base notes. Herbal, citrus, and woodsy, this scent embodies the woodlands of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula—the glorious place where Disney found all of those singing creatures.  


rose + aloe + clover + vanilla + musk

This entrancing concoction blends the energizing green scents of aloe and clover with heart notes of rose and vanilla, balanced by the sumptuous aroma of musk. Uplifting yet dark and sensual, this fragrance is totally a Samantha.


Soy wax is a natural, renewable alternative to traditional paraffin wax, which is made with coal or the same petroleum used to make plastic and motor oil. Because it is made from soy beans, soy wax is a sustainable resource that burns clean with none of the petrol-carbon soot that blackens walls, ceilings, and furniture. Beyond the environmental benefits, soy wax also burns longer than other kinds of wax, and soy candles boast a more powerful scent-throw to fill your room.


Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles creates handmade, 100% soy candles made in reused containers, sustainably making your space smell nice. Their soy wax is made in the United States, supporting American farmers.

They make unique soy candles in recycled containers—meaning that their artisan soy candles are sustainable from start to finish, and many of their handmade candles are one of a kind. 

Their natural scents evoke the landscapes of the Midwest. They create their own unique blends—you won't smell their fragrances anywhere else.
