When Milestone Candles Maker Jamie Novick’s husband got a new job she started thinking about those big life events we commemorate. And what better way to send a greeting, well wishes, or thanks than with a lovely jarred candle?
Jamie’s approach is to apply the sentiment of greeting cards to candles, so each glass jar is labeled to celebrate a birthday, new home, or to express thanks. These Made in the USA candles are hand-poured with soy wax and have a cotton wick that makes for a cleaner burning and longer-lasting experience—around 40 hours. It’s scented with a blend of essential oils that has a light fragrance, and that is deliberate to keep the focus on the thoughtfulness and meaning of a candle. They also pay it forward by donating a percentage of yearly profits to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
