Sea Buckthorn Oil
Sea buckthorn berry oil provides great skin support. The berry oil contains omega 7 which is essential for cellular health and moisture. Sea buckthorn oil has been used to help recover skin from various conditions. Many people use them for issues like eczema, burns, wounds, skin damaging effects of sun, and more. To top it all off, pumpkin has some benefits of its own.

Then add in your drops of sea buckthorn berry oil.
You are going to want to stir the oil in until it is absorbed.
How to use:
Using a spoon you can scoop some of the mixture into your hands. Or if you are feeling particularly into the halloween spirit, you can scoop it up with your hands.
