And if you think that everything thing with Pumpkin Spice flavor actually has real pumpkin in it, think again. As we learned with “Pumpkingate,” real pumpkin rarely makes an appearance in the ingredient label of these products.
Our Pumpkin Spice soap is made from organic pumpkin puree and organic vanilla bean pods straight from our pantry cupboard and we used real stream-distilled cinnamon leaf and clove bud essential oils to bring up the spice note of this soap. The real pumpkin adds an amazing and authentic pumpkin essence to the soap and also colored it a warm honey-amber color that is reminiscent of fall. We used real ground cinnamon from our pantry and sprinkled a layer right in the middle of the batch so that each bar has an interesting color line in it that also adds more real natural essence. Our Pumpkin Spice bars smell amazing on the curing racks right now and the first batch should be ready in a few more weeks. We’ve had some friends stop by to do a little “sniff testing” on some of our new batches and they declared our Pumpkin Spice soap to be a real winner.
