Pumpkin Spice, it’s a cosy kinda day.
Pumpkin Spice wax melts, what do they say to us?
Oozing with autumnal character, pumpkin spice is one of those cosy aromas, that paints the mood for a snuggly night in, wrapped in a warm blanket in front of the fire. You know the scene; a nice old cabin in the middle of nowhere. No sound but you, nature, and a roaring log fire.
A woolly blanket, your best pair of winter socks, and your favorite mug of creamy, buttery, hot pumpkin spice.
Pumpkin spice wax melts are fruity, but they have a strong creamy aroma, infused with nutmeg, orange, lemon, ginger, and clove. On a base of caramel, tonka, and vanilla. That why we have placed them in two categories. Bakery, for all things foody, and also fruity, because after all, Pumpkin is a fruit according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
I don’t know about you, but to me, pumpkins scream Halloween. They are planted as early as April/May and harvested in October, Though notorious for their bright orange colour, we actually planted a new variety this year, called the ghost pumpkin. You guessed it, they were bright white! or at least they would have been; they didn’t even get as far as to sprout. This year it looks like we will be sticking to pumpkin spice wax melts.
Carving pumpkins, now there’s a subject. Have you seen the jack-o’-lanterns these days? I have never carved a pumpkin in my life! Mainly because Mother was dead against them. She just couldn’t stand the smell so we grew up in a pumpkinless childhood.
Needless to say, I didn’t take up the craft into adulthood either. However, I do love seeing the fruits of other people’s efforts. Until of course they tell me they cheated with a pre-cut template. Who knew!
