Correct me if I’m wrong. If you’re an average candle lover, you select candles purely based on the scent you like. That’s what I’ve always done. Until I came across Milkhouse Candles.
I’ll be honest, I started following their blog for the drinks. Each week, their brilliant mixologist creates a recipe inspired by one of their candle scents. I have yet to actually make one, but with recipes like salted apple cider bourbon caramel sauce, that will change soon.
Enough about my obsession with food—back to the candles. Milkhouse is a client of the company I work for (this post isn’t biased, I swear…), and our video team recently flew to Iowa to do a customer story shoot on them. After they returned, Milkhouse sent our entire team a box of candles as a thank you. They sent us a variety of scents. Each one smelled incredibly authentic and had just the right amount of potency.
I snatched up Eucalyptus Lavender. Which is by far the most incredible candle I’ve ever smelled. It’s beautiful and clean and refreshing. The scent nicely fills the entire room, and I even get whiffs of it when it’s not lit—what a bonus.
But, what I truly found most distinct about their candles is how sustainable they are. All beeswax and soy (from local farmers), no artificial coloring (go home, yellow #5), 100% recyclable glass containers (Pinterest lovers will have a field day), and no lead in the wicks. Plus, Milkhouse has that wholesome, family-oriented Midwest vibe going on. (That I might be biased about, having grown up in Indiana.)
So, if you’re looking for a candle you can feel good about burning and a company you can feel good about supporting, you might want to check out Milkhouse (I might be a bit of a fan now).
Happy burning, my friends.
