11 Black-Owned Spiritual Shops to Raise Your Vibe
No negative energy here.
It would be a disservice (and just plain incorrect) to describe spiritual shops as trendy. Long before we were all enchanted via endless scrolls on #WitchTok, crystals, tarot cards, candles have been around for centuries. Today, the shops where you’d typically come across these finds bridge the gap between longstanding spiritual practices and the internet era. Whether you’re in search of deeper understanding or just an uplifting vibe, there’s much to be gained from browsing around a witchy, spiritual shop online or IRL.
You can come across occult basics at more mainstream retailers like Barnes & Noble, which keeps tarot cards in stock, and Urban Outfitters, where you can pick up an ouija board. But in the name of supporting small businesses, we're looking to the Black-owned brands touting everything a budding witch, an astrology enthusiast, or a seasoned practitioner could ever need in their kit.
Another reason to opt for these small businesses? The shop owner might just personally bless your order with all the best intentions. Even for those just beginning their spiritual journey or simply looking to dabble in some dazzling crystal decor, we're sure you'll resonate with the magic found in the brands below, including some with a special cosign from pros in this plane and beyond.
Beau Life Switzerland is a crystal and metaphysical shop owned by tarot reader Vanessa Somuayina. Along with a huge selection of natural crystals, crystal and zodiac jewelry, and crystal beauty tools, she recently released her third tarot deck, The Wild Muse Oracle Deck, which comes with a tailored guidebook. The deck also arrives with a crystal ball, a seven-piece crystal chakra set, and an amethyst crystal, which is said to relieve stress and anxiety.
Another shop owned by a tarot card reader, FourTEAfour offers herbal teas, oils, bath soaks, and sprays. Each product is made with specific intentions, like her collection of Zodiac Moon Teas.

Heritage Apothecary is not short on spiritual tools. Herbal smudging bundles, charging bowls, crystals, incense, cleansing mist, palo santo—the list goes on. But what really shines in the shop is their kits. Sometimes having too much to choose from can be a little overwhelming, which is why ready-to-go kits like the Signature Smoke Cleansing Kit are a much-appreciated addition.
Lala Inuti Ahari is a world-renowned Vodou divinity specialist, spiritual coach, and healer. Her signature Conjure Candles are a fan favorite for their reported rapid and powerful results.

Shontel Anestasia is a spiritual teacher and practitioner of Cuban Santeriá and a "bruja de Nacimiento" meaning a natural witch or born witch.

The shop offerings include intention-set perfume oils and ritual baths, but what really sets her store apart are the custom candles. Customers are prompted to provide their full name and birthdate for Shontel to better attune to their energy while making their candle. Plus, there's an extra-strength option for even better results.
