FOX61 Black-owned business spotlight: NaturalAnnie Essentials

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — NaturalAnnie Essentials is all about creating experiences for customers between the good scents and good vibes.

NaturalAnnie Essentials is a Black woman-owned and family-operated lifestyle soy candle company based out of Bridgeport. Annya White-Brown is the owner; she said she's made it a point to make sure customers feel those good vibes when they walk into the candle studio.

"Customer service is very important to us," proclaimed White-Brown. "We make sure that when you come here, you feel like family, you are a part of the NaturalAnnie Essentials family, and we don't take that lightly."

As a Black business owner, she said her goal is also to make an impact, especially for her daughters and younger brown and Black kids in the community.

"It wasn't very popular seeing Black women-owned businesses when I was growing up. So, it's something for them to look up to and aspire and let them know it can be done."

White-Brown explained that NaturalAnnie Essentials offer affordable, high-quality luxury candles. She said the candles are strong; however, it doesn't cause headaches.

"One of the things people shy away from candles is the overpowering scent that can cause headaches. And we're happy to say you do not get that effect from our candles. You do get a clean slow-burning candle, and it lasts for a very long time, and the fragrances are rich and unique."
