Natural Orb Candle Set

$55

Expand product description

Sold in sets of six by home decor brand HANDS, these Natural Orb candles function like tea lights but favor a handmade look and feel. Two inches tall and three inches wide, they fit into most places the common iterations do, but with a noticeable, design-forward presence. With a bulbous middle, they melt in on themselves when burning (and can become a bit messy). Depending on how long you leave them lit, the burn patterns will differ between candle, as they’re all poured by hand from 100% all-natural food-grade materials. They’re scentless, thus ideal for those with a sensitivity to airborne allergens, and colored with annatto, matcha, spirulina, black tea and safflowers.

Now in its second printing, Melodie McDaniel’s Riding Through Compton is the result of several years of documentary and portrait photography, capturing striking and tender equestrian scenes in the LA County city. In 1988, Mayisha Akbar (who provides an essay in the book) founded the Compton Jr Posse—a program made for local kids to enjoy riding horses, but also to build self-esteem, confidence and a sense of responsibility. Several members from that program went on to create Compton Cowboys (also a non-profit benefitting youth in the area) and leader Randy Savvy also contributes an essay. Within are interviews by Amelia Fleetwood, a poem excerpt by Robin Coste Lewis and an afterword from Youth in Focus founder Walter Bodle. Riding Through Compton is a stunning book that will delight and move readers.

With a faint eucalyptus scent, it lathers up nicely, but doesn’t leave hair feeling stripped. Especially useful for those with fine or weak, damaged hair and individuals who are seeing more hair loss due to weather and stress, this shampoo is effective but gentle.
