Sally is currently obsessed with this beeswax candle, handcrafted in Durham by a Duke alumna and yogi duo. Miel Candles are made from locally sourced 100% pure beeswax blended with organic coconut oil. Beeswax candles are slower and cleaner burning than their candle-counterparts, such as paraffin and soy. Get one for yourself at their etsy shop: etsy.com/shop/MielBeeEnlightened

Upcoming Events

Science of Attraction

Science of Attraction

Cheeks flushed and pulse pounding? Butterflies in your stomach? Discover the science behind feelings of love at this AfterHours event on July 17 at the Museum of Life and Science. Attendees can explore a wide variety of attractive forces, from electromagnetism to the birds and the bees. As with all AfterHours events, adults ages 21 and older have the chance to explore the museum and hang out with friends - without the kids. Guests receive a free drink ticket with the cost of admission, and there will be food trucks on-site, a DJ and lots of cold Triangle Brewing Co. beer to go around.
