IF IT SAYS PUMPKIN SPICE… IT AIN’T NATURAL!
Autumn is here! Vegetation is slowly dying all around us, but the colors are lovely! Let’s put pumpkins in stuff!
Record scratch. Cozy aromas are one of the best things about fall, but did you know there’s no such thing as “pumpkin spice” essential oil?
Alas, it’s impossible to distill and capture the pure essence of a fresh-baked pumpkin pie. If there was, believe us, we’d be huffing that stuff like junkies.
Synthetic fragrances have produced very convincing copies of that “pumpkin spice” smell. Just a little FYI when you’re shopping for home goods and toiletries this time of year.
But here’s some wonderful news for those who wanna whiff on the natural stuff. There are so many amazing essential oil combos out there, and endless possibilities for getting your autumn-aroma fix, sans preservatives or fake fragrance.
