Thanksgiving Dinner Lotion

With Thanksgiving coming up, I have got food on my mind. Now you are probably thinking Thanksgiving Dinner Lotion? Who wants to smells like turkey and mashed potatoes? For the scent of this lotion I made a fragrance blend of Cupid’s Kiss and Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil. Cupid’s Kiss has a strong note of candied berries which makes me think of the traditional cranberry sauce that we always have around Thanksgiving time. I chose Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil, because of course, who doesn’t love a good pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving?

For the fragrance oil blend I did 5 parts Cupid’s Kiss and 1 part Pumpkin Spice.
