Fiona launched Milis in early March 2020 after 14 months of research and experimentation. Having worked as a nurse in cancer care for over twenty years, creating with her hands is a lovely departure from her day to day. In early 2019, she started making little vintage tea cup candles for family and friends. Fiona loved the ritual of mixing oils & pouring wax but the more she researched, she discovered that many candles contain harmful ingredients. This led her to seek out more natural alternatives and the idea for Milis was born.
All of Fionas soy candles and wax melts use natural, recyclable, re-usable or ethically sourced materials and she will always strive to find these as locally as possible. She uses 100% natural soy wax, wicks made from cotton and paper and the oils used to produce the scent are a mix of essential oils and high quality fragrance oils which are vegan, paraben and phatalate free. Milis candles are in glass jars & bottles with a beautiful gold lid which can be easily re-used and they are packaged with recyclable labels and brown card packaging.
