Pumpkin Seed Oil is one of my favorite fall/winter oils to
use because it so rich in vitamins that your skin needs to stay healthy and
soft. Pumpkin Seed oil is rich in vitamins
A, C, E and mineral zinc which give your skin a boost just like an energy drink
but the lasting power of eating an apple to maintain your energy. It’s a rich deep color with a powerful
pumpkin seed smell so you only need to use a little bit to get results.
I use this oil in my
Pumpkin Spice lotion to use after my Pumpkin Spice Face & Body Scrub. The smell is amazing with rich vanilla and
pumpkin pie blended together. Whenever
anyone needs help with super dry skin I always recommend pumpkin because it has
the enzymes to break down all that dry skin and make your skin smooth as a baby’s
Here is an easy beauty recipe to give your skin a good
Pumpkin Pie Mask
1 tb. pumpkin puree
1 tb. pumpkin seed oil
¼ cup Greek yogurt
2 tb. honey
3 tb. wheatgerm
a pinch of cinnamon and ginger
Just mix all ingredients in a small bowl and apply to your
face. Leave on for about five minutes. Rinse face and pat dry.
Pumpkin Seed Oil is great to cook with too!! I have used a
little when making pumpkin muffins, cake, or granola for a boost of pumpkin
nutty flavor. Once again beauty and food
go hand in hand.
