The Outer Banks Candle Company


Kimber Smith

I’m Kimber Smith, CANDLE ARTIST, & owner of The Outer Banks Candle Company in Kitty Hawk, NC. I’m a mother of 5, married to a pastor & I have a degree in ART. I started this candle business in 2008 with 3 very young children (4, 2 & newborn… that was crazy!) It all began with a passion to create unique & beautiful candles.

I am inspired by the beautiy & peacefulness of the coast… the colors, the ocean’s treasures & the changing seasons… believing that the right candle can evoke the same peace & simplicity that inspired it.The Outer Banks Candle Company is very much a FAMILY business. My children have grown up around the candle studio, “helping” & learning the craft! 

These days, with the help of a small team of candle makers, we continue to pour all of your candles by hand with great care & attention. And I hope you love them as much as we have loved making them!

Follow along on Facebook or Instagram to see lots of behind the scenes on how & where the candles are made, Outer Banks photos that inspire these candles, the family of seven behind this small business, as well as new candle releases & promotions!
