It’s that time of the year again when we welcome the holiday season starting with Halloween. Fall is such a magical time of the year. The beauty all around is intoxicating and we just can’t help but jump in with our 2023 holiday series. Over the next three months, we will bring you several recipes of beauty products you can make at home for your friends and family. This edition features our pumpkin seed oil. There are pumpkins everywhere on the porch and in the kitchen waiting to be used for pies, cakes and bread loaves. That is not the only place pumpkins belong, they also belong in your beauty cabinet because of how highly beneficial they are to skin and hair. Pumpkin seed oil is obtained from processing pumpkin seeds to release a rich dark brown oil that nourishes the skin and strengthens hair.
Our organic extra virgin pumpkin seed oil is an unrefined oil with a characteristic rich olive green to dark orange color and a characteristic nutty pumpkin smell and flavor. Extra virgin pumpkin seed oil, also referred to by the botanical name Cucurbita pepo, is cold-pressed extracted, unroasted and non-GMO. This high quality oil is a preferable culinary or cosmetic ingredient due to its naturally occurring essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamin content. Extra virgin pumpkin seed oil is used in a wide range of culinary applications such as salad dressings, cooking oil, dipping oil for bread, marinades or even as a complimentary drizzle on desserts. It may also be used in cosmetics as an ingredient in skin creams, lotions, balms and massage oils. Extra virgin pumpkin seed oil has a relatively high level of unsaturated Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids which may also result in natural health benefits.
