These were absolutely perfect! I have received many compliments on both the quality and the scent (buttercream) from the guests - highly recommended.

Gorgeous can, yummy, yummy, yummy scent. These candles are strong but not overpowering, they spread the scent quickly, and I love that they're soy. Love!!!

Smell great & cute glasses! I love that you can use the glasses after the candle is done.

These candles smell so good, even when they aren't lit. I found Milton & Margie's at a Chicago craft fair and became obsessed with their candles. Other soy candles smell too strong and give me a headache-- these always smell light and fresh. Great customer service too.
Building Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles
At craft shows, people who don’t know me generally think my name is Margie, but it is not. Hello, my name is Jess Snively, and Milton and Margie are my cats. Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles was born in a small apartment in Minneapolis in the mid 2000s. I set out to make soy wax candles in a few reused containers I had lying around the house, and candle-making turned into an obsession. I was a consumer and admirer of the handmade crafting movement, and I hoped these candles would be a ticket in. Now based in Chicago, I continue to churn out candles and sell them online, in a few shops, and at craft shows in the Chicago area.
100% SOY WAX CANDLES
Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles creates hand-poured, 100% soy candles made in reused containers, sustainably making your space smell nice.
We make unique soy candles in everything from tin cans to vintage mugs to retro glasses, meaning that many of our handmade candles are one of a kind.
SCENTS INSPIRED BY NATURE
Our natural scents evoke the landscapes of the Midwest, with uncommon scents including Cedar Campfire, White Ginger with Amber, and Wild Honey.
