My Favorite Murder Soy Candle Set; 4 15 oz. Soy Candles

88.00

All of Milton and Margie’s Soy Wax Candles are hand-poured in small batches in Chicago. The scented candles are handmade from 100% pure soy wax, cotton wicks, and a blend of fine, soy-based oils and poured in reused containers.

MY FAVORITE MURDER

This soy candle set is a tribute to the dark and hilarious true-crime comedy podcast My Favorite Murder, hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. The true-crime enthusiasts—aka Murderinos—tell grisly and often heartbreaking stories of murder through the lens of humor and feminism.

As a lifelong Murderino, I listen to these ladies all day while I make soy candles, so it seemed only right to make a line inspired by them. 

THE SET

This set is for the ultimate Murderino, and includes four My Favorite Murder-inspired soy candles in reclaimed cans. 

* Stay Sexy. Don't Get Murdered
* Elvis, Want a Cookie? 
* Stay Out of the Forest
* Call Your Dad, You're In a Cult

When you purchase the whole set, you save $2 on each candle!

STAY SEXY. DON’T GET MURDERED

Murderinos know that it’s not as easy as it sounds—well, we have the sexy part down pat—because you never know when an Ed Kemper or Richard Ramirez is on the loose. 

To ward off some of that anxiety, light this calming candle. Bright top notes of ginger and bergamot add sparkle to the soothing scents of white tea and amber. It’s a relaxing fragrance that creates a resplendent atmosphere for listening to tales of murder.

THE SCENT

Stay Sexy. Don’t Get Murdered.

white tea + ginger + amber + bergamot

ELVIS, WANT A COOKIE?

Mrrreeoooow. All Murderinos wait for this moment. At the end of each podcast, Georgia says to her cross-eyed Siamese cat Elvis, “Elvis, want a cookie?” to which he responds with the grumpiest, cutest meow of all time to get his treat. Everyone needs a little treat while fending off murderers and toxic masculinity, so light up this decadently sweet candle, and have your cookie, too.

THE SCENT

Elvis, Want a Cookie? 

crème brûlée + vanilla

STAY OUT OF THE FOREST

Any Murderino worth her salt knows you should never go into a forest, whether you’re alone or with an entire marching band. To stay sexy and not get murdered, Karen and Georgia recommend that you “Get a job. Buy your own shit. Stay out of the forest.” 

If you feel yourself getting an urge to go camping, light this candle instead. It’s a woodsy combination of cedar campfire, lemongrass, sage, mulberry, and orange. 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, sans the dead bodies. So turn on the podcast, light up your candle, and whatever you do, do not go into those woods.

THE SCENT

Stay Out of the Forest

lemongrass + sage + mulberry + orange + cedar campfire

CALL YOUR DAD, YOU’RE IN A CULT

Murderinos know that finding yourself in the grips of a cult isn’t as far-fetched as the general public seems to think it is. It all starts so innocently. You’ve gone to a meeting for a group of socialists against racism called The People’s Union—sure, the meeting is in an abandoned megachurch, but there are a lot of people involved, so they need a big meeting space. The leader sports an ‘80s mustache and is wearing aviator sunglasses indoors, but he’s just a little eccentric. 

BOOM. Next thing you know, you’re wearing a bonnet and giving birth to his child, humanity’s li’l savior. As Karen and Georgia wisely advise, “Call your Dad, you’re in a cult.” He’ll probably be a little disappointed in you, but he’ll still come pick you up.

As a reminder, light this candle that smells just like your Dad. The rugged yet warm scent is rich and woodsy with a hint of vanilla. 

THE SCENT

Call Your Dad, You’re in a Cult

vanilla + cedar + sandalwood + leather

THE CONTAINER’S STORY

Each 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.

As part of the My Favorite Murder Collection, the reused cans are hand painted in moody hues. They feature a label with a quirky My Favorite Murder–inspired illustration designed by Jessica Snively (that’s me). 

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

ABOUT SOY WAX

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.
