I don’t know what it is about a bomb ass candle but they just make me so happy! From the amazing scents, to the beautiful presentation and the sound of the wooden wicks! Candles can set the mood just right and make your night a little easier to relax into. And during this very stressful time, they may be helpful during this quarantine too! Light a candle, close your eyes and just breathe.
Here are some of my fave black owned candle companies!
Light up with intention! Kori creates beautiful soy wax candles that may help with attracting love, clear up sinuses or simply relax. Each purchase comes with handwritten affirmations and a surprise crystal. Follow her Twitter @libramoonstone for daily affirmations that are sure to make your days better.
Tay started candle making in 2014 but took her business seriously in 2016 and ever since then it’s been nothing but black excellence! Her candles not only have amazing scents but have some incredible captions to match like Grey Sweat Pants, Black Girl Magic and Allergic to Bullshit.
It’s a whole experience when shopping with Alexandra Winbush. Determine your vibe with the help of her team and you will not only be paired with a candle but some quality tea and a playlist as well. Draw yourself a bath, light that candle, sip that tea and let one of their playlists drift you away.
“A piece of my peace.” Howard alumna Jamiliah created these colorful tropical gel wax candles to help alleviate daily anxiety, stress and depression. With some candles up to a 120 hour burn time, these are sure to make your space the perfect getaway.
With scents like Tea Cakes and Morning Joe, these fragranced soy wax candles will fill your space and have visitors asking can they have some of whatever you’re making! Krazy Essentials doesn’t only focus on the smell of your home but also offers face and body products like body butters and facial oils too.
With an emphasis on quality sleep as a basic human necessity, these wooden wick candles put your mind at ease and make it a lot easier to implement self care and rest. They also have tinctures, teas and pillow sprays to help you get the sleep you deserve! Sleep is not for the weak, it is for the living.
Using essentials oils and coconut wax, Lot XI candles provide a very fragranced and refreshing home moment. Be bold with the masuline and feminie scents of Compton Native or totally at peace with Breathe. They not only provide home goods, but face masks, bath teas and soaps!
