There's something about a candle that can make your home, home. Whether it be its design or scent, candles have the power to make many feel relaxed and at peace. And in the middle of a global pandemic and a much-needed uprising against systemic racism, finding and creating space in your home to destress is important. So, skip out on lighting up something from Yankee Candle and support one of these Black-owned candle brands instead. Because they're more than just a way to elevate your space or fill your rooms with a pleasant aroma (though they accomplish that, too); the candles are a true labor of love.
Harlem Candle Co.
As the name suggests, Harlem Candle Co. is a love letter from founder Teri Johnson to the New York City neighborhood, as well as a manifestation of her love of fragrance and jazz. With numerous collections, you can find luxury gold-lettered tumblers, ones with maps of Harlem, and others with floral designs.
