Stay Out of the Forest. My Favorite Murder Soy Candle; 15 oz.

STAY OUT OF THE FOREST

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. 

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 CONTAINER’S STORY

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.

As part of the My Favorite Murder Collection, the reused can is hand painted in a moody hue. It features 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 can as a pen holder or planter.

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.
