41 Black-Owned Businesses You Can Support Right Now

Whether or not you participated in #BlackOutDay earlier this week, I’m sure you’ve seen a rush of support for Black-owned businesses in the last few days. I asked my followers for their favorite Black-owned brands, and boy did y’all deliver! I got so many suggestions that I couldn’t include them all, but I made sure to add any that came up multiple times. Let me know your favorite business from this list!

Jewelry Brands

Decadent Minis 

Led by Trina Moreau, a self-taught artist, this polymer clay jewelry and miniature dollhouse food seriously looks good enough to eat.

Crystal Pleasures

Breathtakingly beautiful crystal jewelry and stones.

Oma The Label

I’m a total sucker for dainty gold jewelry, so I’m totally waiting for Oma to restock their pieces.

BR Design Co.

*cries my eyes out that my ears aren’t pierced* It’s fine. I’m fine.

The Tiny Tassel 

Every piece on The Tiny Tassel’s website feels like a party. If colorful and preppy is your jam, check them out.

Hair Brands

The Wrap Life

They’re sold out of almost all of the wraps I love, but you better believe I’m eager for a restock.

The Puff Cuff

Getting my natural hair into a normal hair tie simply isn’t a possibility. I can’t wait to try a hair clamp from The Puff Cuff!

Oemi Botanicals

If you have kinky, oily hair, add this to your buy list. Their hair products all sound like they smell amazing.

Mielle Organics

Your hair deserves a spa day, which is why I love Mielle Organics. I’m eyeing their hair vitamins myself.

Skin + Body Care

Golde

If you’re going to splurge on a face mask, make sure it’s from GOLDE. Check out their wellness section for goodies, too.

OUI the People

These luxury razors are to die for, and their bikini line masks look incredible.

Alikay Naturals

Alikay has haircare, skincare and body care, along with lifestyle and wellness products. Seriously your one-stop shop for anything you need to pamper yourself.

Lulu’s Holistic Skincare 

It’s impossible for me to even pick a favorite product from their website, but the turmeric and lavender soap bar caught my eye.

LUV SCRUB

I am intrigued by LUV SCRUB, mainly because I don’t exfoliate enough as-is. They have rave reviews, so I really want to check them out.

Oshun Organics 

Crystal and herbal-infused skincare — need I say more?

Pure with Love

Tampa-based, Black-owned and soaps so delicious I want to eat them? Check, check, check.

Honey Dipped Essentials

Organic soaps, body oil and bath soaks — and the dreamiest branding I’ve ever seen.

Alaffia

Not only does Alaffia have an incredible selection of face and body products for kids and adults, but they’re also an 501(c)3 organization all about empowering African communities.

Butter Love by LC

These bath soaks and body butters look low-key scrumptious, and I love the commitment to using natural ingredients.

Food + Drink Brands

Osha’s Kitchen

You don’t need a write-up to understand why you need these cookies. LOOK AT THEM.

Partake Foods

If you’re in the mood for dessert and looking for gluten-free or vegan options, Partake comes highly recommended.

Home & Art Brands

Light the Candle Co. 

I’m sold on the candle names and descriptions alone. For “Don’t Text Him:” Sis, don’t let a few glasses of champagne land you in a night of misery. Protect your peace, Queen!

MKoby Art

I had the privilege of calling Melissa an IG friend before she went viral, so I was stoked to see a follower suggest her beautiful art.

Bria Nicole Art

I want to decorate my entire house with prints from Bria’s shop. You’ll see why if you check it out.

Estelle Colored Glass

Estelle was suggested by several of my followers, and it’s not hard to see why. Hand-blown glasses in jewel tones? Say no more.

Harlem Candle Company

I’m a sucker for candles, and Harlem’s rave reviews combined with the fact that they’re sold out of so many scents has me eyeing their website.

Passport 7

So many candle brands, so little time. I’m tempted to try their scents inspired by the Seven Wonders of the World.

Love Offering

Another Tampa-based brand! Josefina’s calligraphy is breathtaking, and her book about pregnancy loss was a huge help to me after my miscarriage.

Jungalow

My style leans minimalist, but looking at the cups, pillows and rugs on Jungalow’s website has me wanting a house filled with color.

Southern Elegance Candle Company

My favorite thing about Southern Elegance’s website? The candles are sorted by season, which makes it way easier to pick out a favorite scent.

The Koop 

Are you thinking, “Another candle brand?” The answer, dear reader, is yes. How could I not include The Koop when they have a candle named after Golden Hour?

EcoVibe Style

EcoVibe has so much to choose from — from plants to rugs to journals, you’ll be able to pick up gifts for everyone in your life from this one shop.

Hathor’s Organic Co.

I was tempted to cut Hathor’s from my list just because I have so many candles on here that it’s getting obnoxious, but after looking at their affirmation candle scents, I knew I had to include them.

Clothing

 

Kido Chicago

It’ll be at least two years before these potato chip sweatpants fit my daughter, but now I’m upset they don’t come in adult sizes.

Elisamama Kids

These African printed dresses are everything, and they come in infant sizes!

Jane Dottie Vintage

These scrunchies give me 80s vibes in the absolute best way.

Legendary Rootz

It was impossible for me to pick just one shirt from their website, but I forced myself to budget! I’ll definitely be back for more.

Bookstores

Semicolon Chicago

Semicolon is a Black woman-owned bookstore based in Chicago with an online bookstore as well. They have a huge selection, so make sure you check out their site!

Harriett’s Bookshop

Based in Philadelphia, Harriett’s also has a robust online collection, and a lot of the books are on sale right now!
