9 Black-Owned Vegan Candle Brands

You won’t want to miss out on these luxurious Black-owned candle companies.

After a long day, there’s nothing better than snagging a drink from the fridge, lighting a scented candle, and curling up on the couch to catch up on your newest read or to scroll TikTok. No matter how you wind down, there’s no denying that a flickering candle on the coffee table is such a vibe. Next time you need to re-up your bee-free candle collection, support one of these nine Black-owned vegan candle brands. With options ranging from warm and cozy scents to clean and fresh aromas, these soy and coconut wax candles are a must!

EmbodyCandle

The small, Black-owned candle shop based out of Pittsburgh is owned and operated by female entrepreneur, Bri Wright. EmbodyCandle features vegan-friendly, scented candles that showcase the beauty of the human physique. Find fresh, artisanal scents like Bonfire, Mahogany Teakwood, Jasmine + Lemongrass, and Warm Apple Cider from this hand-poured candle company.

Paige’s Candle Co.

After losing her mother at an early age, Paige Graham found healthy self-expression through outlets like candlemaking. She began Paige’s Candle Co. in 2017, bringing handmade candles to inner cities and beyond. Each candle is made with vegan-friendly soy wax and a blend of handcrafted, phthalate-free fragrances from Queens and Brooklyn. We are loving the Hazelnut & Coffee Taxonomy scent.

La Boticá

Founded by Dawn Marie West, La Boticá specializes in sustainable, luxury self-care items. Each candle is made from plant-based wax and contains a cotton wick. Ingredients are sourced from South America, and each candle is inspired by Afro-Dominican culture. With notes of vanilla, peach blossom, violet, orris, and sandalwood, the SOHO candle is a serious treat for the senses.
