VELA NEGRA candles evoke emotions of the Latin world. Founder Aisha Cort’s Afro-Cuban and Guyanese culture influence the creation of the candles. Each luxurious black candle is made to order by hand, individually poured by Aisha using 100 percent vegan coconut soy wax with ethically-sourced wooden wicks, fragrance, and dye to provide a clean burn.
The fragrances and their namesakes remind Aisha of her heritage and places such as Cuba and Puerto Rico that she has called home.
Candles are sold individually and in sampler sets with unique offerings such as ashé, azúcar, coquí, morena, rico, and wepa. Can’t decide which VELA NEGRA to bring home? Get them all with the Lovers Set which is a wonderful way to sample this exquisite line. The small-batch collections will fill your home with unforgettable fragrances.
The candles are the perfect stress-reducing outlet. Customers appreciate the care and intention that are put into each creation.
Allure featured VELA NEGRA’s Ashe candle in their holiday roundup of the best smelling gifts to give and get this season. As we spend more time indoors, they noted candles are more important than ever to make the home smell good and create warmth for this time of year. Candle lovers will be pleasantly delighted with this scent.
According to the company, Ashé is the powerful spirit to make things happen and create change that every being possesses. In Cuba, it is uttered as both a greeting and a blessing. This fragrance captures a cleansing palo santo and sage blend, grounded by chinotto, cedarwood, and blackwood to bring a bit of ashé into your home.
