Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles

Learn to Make Soy Candles with a Candle Making Kit

NewJessica Snively

Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles is now offering soy candle making kits

The candle kits contain everything you need to learn to make soy candles, including the supplies, instructions, and tips on creating your own signature fragrance. 

The kit comes in a smart little solid pine box, making it an ideal gift for your favorite crafter or DIY enthusiast. 

What are the benefits of soy wax? For starts, it's sustainable and it burns longer and cleaner than traditional paraffin wax candles.

  • Instructional booklet
  • 5 lbs. 100% pure soy wax
  • 5 1 oz. bottles of soy-based fragrance oils
    • Green Clover and Aloe oil
    • Lemon oil     
    • French Vanilla oil     
    • Cedarwood oil   
    • Lavender oil   
  • 25 cotton-core wicks
  • 25 wick stickers

You just need to provide your own fun containers. (For reference, this kit contains enough wax to fill 5 standard mason jars or 25 glass votives.) Make a candle in your favorite vintage mug, farmhouse mason jar, or even a tea tin.

One of my favorite parts of running Milton and Margie's is scouring thrift stores in search of the perfect kitschy mug or classic midcentury glass. I'm most excited when I find glass cowboy boot beer mugs—they just make me happy. So get out there and find your glass cowboy boot!

If you'd like to supplement the kit, take a Dabble soy candle making class with me at Paperish Mess or Eye Spy Optical (both in Chicago). You'll learn to make soy candles while sipping cocktails and gabbing with other crafter-types. What else do you need for a good time?
