The Omume Company is an African-Inspired candle brand for the explorer in you! A Black-Owned candle company and Women-Owned business created by our founder, Christabel, who is in love with all things food and travel. After battling a stress-induced illness, she began to focus on things that bring her joy, create experiences to enrich her life and journey back to her true happier self.
