For the fourth consecutive year, Meridian, Idaho-based Scentsy has been ranked No. 15 on the Idaho Private 100 list of the top privately held companies.
This marks the ninth year in a row that Scentsy has made the list, which recognizes private enterprise and honors privately held Idaho-based companies that generate the greatest annual revenue.
Scentsy was founded in 2004 by Orville and Heidi Thompson. The company currently has approximately 120,000 independent sales Consultants in 11 countries.
“When we started this business, we were running it out of an old 40-foot shipping container on a Meridian sheep farm,” said Heidi Thompson, Scentsy’s president. “Orville would create the recipes for our fragranced wax in a crockpot and then the kids and I would package and label each bar to get ready to ship.”
The flagship product line quickly attracted a faithful following, and the business boomed. Today Scentsy offers warmers and wax as well as diffusers, natural oils, portable fragrance products, a laundry and cleaning line, children’s products, a personal care line and a Disney Collection.
