Milan’s Mission

Named after his youngest daughter, Milan Candles was founded by US Army combat veteran, Luis Garcia with one goal in mind…

To help make the world a safer place and end sex trafficking through his non-profit, Milan’s Mission.

Why Candles?

Candles represent warmth, comfort and hope, and what better way to offer support and healing to individuals impacted by sex trafficking than to shine a light and help guide them past the darkness towards safety and freedom.

Our impact-led approach is underpinned by our our 3R strategy


To raise awareness, educate,
and provide preventive
strategy training.


To rescue those who have been
impacted by sex trafficking.


To support those rescued to make
a holistic transition into a
life they desire.

The proceeds of every candle sold bring us one step closer to making this vision a reality


Hand poured with love using organic, natural ingredients
