Ice cream season is upon us. Nearly. And hey...so is Halloween, not that I think of that being a thing, but it kind of is becoming a thing yes? In my neighborhood it is at least. And I am in the USA as I write this and am surrounded by pumpkin carvers, decorations, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING and Disneyland is fully themed with Halloween. I had no idea...I lived here for years, not sure where I was each Halloween, but really?? Never knew till this trip. SO here is my salute to pumpkin spice and summer pending. You do need doTERRA oils to get the full benefits of flavour, but you can replace all of the oils with dry spices. Use about 1/2 tsp of anything but ground cloves. Use a pinch of cloves if you don't have the oil.
Happy Summery, Halloween!
