PRO TIP: use Thieves Spray or a stronger dilution of Thieves Cleaner to help keep your carved pumpkins from turning to a moldy-mushy-mess the next morning.
* Wash the outside of the pumpkin with Thieves Dish Soap. Dry the pumpkin.
* Carve the pumpkin.
* Spray the inside, carved surfaces and the top with Thieves Spray.
* Repeat the spray daily for best results.
We love this non-toxic way of helping our carved pumpkins perky for a few days longer!
Alternative: You could also use a solution of 1 tsp castile soap or Thieves Dish Soap, 20 drops of Thieves essential oil, and water combined in a 2 oz spray bottle. * Personally, I would add a bit of alcohol as well. I feel this is what makes the Thieves Spray work the best for the pumpkin preserving.
Don't Forget: Save those pumpkin seeds for roasting!
Have you tried them flavored with Thieves Vitality?! Oh - doesn't this recipe sound amazing!
