Our Story

Every business has a story and every story has a beginning. Here is a little bit about ours and what inspired the WYO Candle Co.

In August of 2018 we hand-poured a small collection of soy candles for a local fundraiser and quickly found out that people not only enjoyed them, but they wanted more. It was shortly thereafter that the seeds of something much bigger than we anticipated were planted and the pieces began falling into place. A year later, in August 2019, WYO Candle Co. was established and officially open for business. We wanted to incorporate the things we love about Wyoming, the West, the serenity of the outdoors, and the art community in general, and harness it all into an elegant, sophisticated, rugged, and high-quality candle company with scents and projects everyone would appreciate.

Our aim is not to simply operate a candle company, but to solidify ourselves as a premier Wyoming lifestyle company producing fine candles and fragrance products where every aromatic experience is enjoyed for its own sake, serving as a wonderful reminder of a good time, favorite place, or meaningful occasion. 

Give Back: Helping Children 

Throughout our international adoption journey we have received the most incredible support from family, friends, our local community, and even complete strangers. We have also been introduced to the unique challenges facing older children waiting for a forever family and hoping to be adopted. Because of the support we received for our own adoption we knew giving back to other adoptive families and providing a voice for this issue was something that had to be a part of the company vision from day one. Here's what we've done and will continue to do: Every year a portion of sales will be donated to organizations that facilitate adoption and care for children waiting for a forever home.
