Chicago Flag Great Lakes Soy Candle in a Reused Can; 15 oz.


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. 


Great Lakes

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.


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.

The reused can is hand painted to look like the Chicago flag to show your Chicago pride!

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

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.
