Written by Bre Mitchell

In my effort to spread love and awareness of Black-Owned Businesses, every month I would like to highlight brands that invite more ease, luxury, pleasure, sustainability, yumminess and joy into our lives. 

These are brands I've either shopped, partnered with, or found during a search that piqued my interest and made me feel seen and heard.  Buying Black is an action verb that helps our community rise while resisting oppression and systemic racism.

1. The Black Leaf Tea And Culture Shop

Amber Jackson, owner and a native of Chicago, creates unique tea blends to inspire calm, joy and creativity.  She also uses her growing platform to celebrate Black culture as well as hold space for important conversations crucial to our wellbeing and community.

2. The Rachet Hipster

There is no such thing as having too many plants.  Donna, owner of The Rachet Hipster, an online resource for plant care and shopping, has over 80.  If your green thumb hasn't quite kicked in yet, Donna can help you unleash your inner plant mom while not feeling so overwhelmed while keeping your plants alive.

3. Zach And Zoe Sweet Bee Farm

With offerings that include Lavender, Matcha and Ginger Root, you are sure to quickly find your fave.  Owned by Summer and Kam Johnson, who started the bee farm after one of their children experienced allergies, their mission is to cultivate the tastiest honey completely free of pesticides and additives. The name of the company was inspired by their two children, Zach and Zoe.

4. Love Vera

Lingerie Brand Love Vera was born out of the need for diversity and inclusivity.  With sizes ranging from S to 4X, Love Vera is determinedly making room for all Black women to feel valued, confident and celebrated while looking absolutely HAWT.  


5. Michele Foods 

Syrup so Black?  Absolutely if you are talking about Michele Hoskins, owner of Michel Foods that offers her delicious syrups.  With a secret recipe created by her great-great-grandmother, freed slave America Washington, Hoskins syrups are proof that success may take time but it can be very sweet.


6. Buttered By K-Luxe

Rooted in love and self-care for the Black community, Buttered By K-Luxe is a family owned and operated business (which includes 4 daughters and twin sons) that prides itself on crafting hydrating skincare products that utilize natural, organic, ethically sourced ingredients and are produced in small batches.
