Call Your Dad, You're in a Cult. My Favorite Murder Soy Candle; 15 oz.

STAY SEXY. DON’T GET MURDERED

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. 

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 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.
