Okay candle-lovers, this one’s for you: a list of Black-owned candle companies on Etsy. Scented soy candles, funny candles, cool body-shaped candles, wood wick, soy wax melts and more!
Candles are something that will never go out of style, and there are so many incredible candle-makers out there. But when you search for candles on Google, whether luxury or not, it’s clear that the top options are ummm…very much dominated by one demographic…And that demographic is not predominantly Black.
So some might wrongfully assume that there are no Black-owned candle makers out there.
When it comes to Black-owned candle brands, you may be familiar with Jackie Aina‘s Forvr Mood, or maybe even the Harlem Candle Company, based (of course) out of New York City.
But did you know that there are a ton of incredible Black candle businesses of all sizes over on Etsy?
To make it easy for you (and because I love Etsy), I’ve assembled a list featuring 40 different Etsy shops and will add as I find more that fit!
We’ve got a wonderful variety of candles, with the majority of them being hand poured and scented soy wax.
Before we get into it, make sure you bookmark it so you can come back to it again and again!
