Black Owned Businesses We Love: Self Care Items, Wine and Decadent (But Mom- and Kid- Friendly!) Treats.
Now more than ever we need to take care of ourselves, our families and our communities - and here at MOMSQUAD, we believe you can do that while also lifting up other moms and especially other mom entrepreneurs of color. Here are some of our favorites:
Sonshine Bath began when Tuanieha Twanna first became a mother and was dissatisfied with the chemicals found in most of the infant soap and hair care products she encountered. Taking matters into her own hands, Twanna started creating her own all-natural soaps and shampoos for her baby - and it turns out, they were really good!
Twanna realized that there were many other mothers who wanted the best quality products for themselves and their children, and the company was born.
Today, the Sonshine Bath is now mother- and son-owned business, and recently received a feature in Vogue magazine. Now, if that’s not #momsquadgoals, we don’t know what is!
Sometimes the best thing we can do to feel good, is to make someone else feel good. If you have and friends or family that are particularly struggling right now, what better pick-me-up could there be than sending them a delicious dessert, delivered right to their home?
Although us busy mamas don’t always have time for a social life, we can let our loved ones know we care by sending them a cute pastry from the Real Cake Bakery’s online store direct to their home.
Wait, you didn’t think we would overlook the healing power of a quiet moment and a glass of high-quality wine, did you?
The McBridge Sisters are a family-owned, woman-owned winery that offers monthly wine delivery subscriptions, among many other things.
We love their Friesling recipe (the Riesling version of Frosé!) made with their Black Girl Magic Riesling.
Never underestimate the power of words to open your mind and soothe your soul. Lalah Delia is a spiritual educator and writer, and her healing words of wisdom have never been more needed. Relax with a bubble bath and a copy of her best-selling book, “Vibrate Higher Daily: Live Your Power” and let the positive energy soak in.
“We’re here to help you develop a ritual of radical self-love that celebrates you just as you are.” This is the mission of Kintsugi Candle co, founded by mompreneur Allison Jones after a life-changing experience, which occurred after she was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April of 2018. Named after the Japanese art of restoring broken pottery using gold lacquer, Kintsugi candles are made with the highest quality ingredients and include inspirational quotes that lend us strength during difficult times.
Mothers everywhere, don’t be afraid to just relax and enjoy - knowing that a better world for our children may not be as far away as we might fear.
Buying a product from any of these black-owned businesses is guaranteed to bring delight as well as satisfaction. knowing that we are, after all, in this battle together.
