This year I set out to showcase women who built a small business from the ground up. Women with an idea, determined to make it happen, and today are living their dream of doing exactly what they love to do. These women are self-made, their own boss, and support and empower other females. Every month I will share a woman-owned business in hopes that you will support her too!
Meet Chasity… the boss behind Noura Blanc… a lifestyle home fragrance brand in San Antonio, Texas. Noura Blanc opened for business very recently in April 2022. However, the idea started way before that. Chasity and her husband always talked about starting a business if they just had the time, and in March 2020 we all had nothing but time. The pandemic forced Chasity to reevaluate her life and put joy in the forefront of it all. She spent a year and a half searching for the big idea. Chasity eventually landed on a home fragrance business. Her love of candles led her to the birth of Noura Blanc. It just all made sense.
Noura Blanc offers non-toxic, natural candles poured into beautiful artisan, handcrafted concrete vessels. The concrete vessels can be easily repurposed once the candles have burned. Chasity also offers a monthly subscription program that allows customers to try new fragrances often. For people like me, this is one of the best things about Noura Blanc. I love lighting candles and I love the idea of candles arriving on my doorstep monthly and ready to use. Also, they are made with non-toxic ingredients so I know that lighting these candles in my home will not harm us.
I spent some time with Chasity in her home (where she runs Noura Blanc) and I watched as she made a batch of candles. Y’all I realize now how much time and diligence goes into making one candle! I can tell you that Chasity orchestrates everything from the ingredients to the packaging and she makes sure to complete each step with perfection. This fall she is launching a new line of handcrafted candles… new scents and new colors! You don’t want to miss out on that launch this September.
If you are a candle junkie like me… and you are serious about non-toxic fragrances in your home… you need to check out Noura Blanc. In my opinion, it is a fragrance brand that I can see growing so quickly in the next few months!
