Welcome Home with an Amazing Scent

Traditions Start with Fun, Good Feelings, Fond Memories and Fragrance.

Hi We are Vance and Nikki

Vance and Nikki Barowsky, best friends that turned husband and wife, restarted the business of making candles in 2018. Vance owned a candle company several years ago but had to sell it as his day job moved him back to Idaho where he was born and raised.

The point of restarting Owyhee Candle Company was to provide happiness to our friends and families who often refer to us as Beavis and Butthead, peanut butter and jelly, Dumb and Dummer, or Bonnie and Clyde. We decided we have had enough of boring candles with lame names so the challenge was on. Not only do we make the best candle using an all natural soy blended wax, but we try to pair up these great scents with creative names. Which some come about after a couple of beers!

Owyhee Candles creates long lasting, fragrant candles, sprays, lip balms wax melts, and beard oils, using all natural, unique and premium ingredients with class, humor and a little playfulness.
