Next time you need to re-up your bee-free candle collection, support one of these nine Black-owned vegan candle brands.

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.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
