Pumpkin Is The Obvious Choice

I concocted dozens of batches, most ended up in the garbage immediately. We are now finished with our formulating and testing and we all love the scrub. My mother has visited a number of times and commented on the smell of my garbage... "You have the best smelling garbage of anyone I know!" Hmmm. Strange comment. I suppose she is right; My garbage smells like pie!

Pumpkin is great for your skin- the enzymes found in pumpkin dissolve dull skin and contain essential fatty acids, antioxidants, zinc, and high levels vitamins A and E which can diminish the appearance of wrinkles, and some say can soften the effect of stretch marks. It also contains high amounts of antioxidants. Free radicals are the primary agents in the advancement of the aging process, and antioxidants, applied topically and eaten, are the best defense... So, if you eat plenty of pumpkin and rub it all over your body, you are ahead of the game. Sounds good to me.

It will be available September 1st, just in time for Fall - weighing 9.5 ounces. And priced under $20! I am still working on other Autumn surprises, including the Honey Scrub which is still going through our vigorous testing process. We are close for those who have been asking.

As I have said before, I welcome comments; I love to hear from you, so please let me know your thoughts.

Yeah! I can't wait to see this yummy concotion. Isn't there some strange study that says that Pumpkin is the sexiest smell to a man or something like that?

Anne-Marie, I haven't heard that, but from the response I've gotten, people are going nutso about it!
