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 beauty & 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! You can read more about our candle making process here and the story of how it all started here.
