The deeper we are in the fall, the more beautiful are the colors that surround us. In addition to the impressive and carefree autumn walks between the vibrant foliage and the purple vine, we are again fascinated by the view of ripe orange pumpkins. And since the Saturdays are Flower and Spice pampering day, we decided that today is the day we treat our soul and skin properly.
We will make our nan's famous super spicy pumpkin soup with buckwheat popcorn and pumpkin oil.


The process is very simple and the meal is delicious, healthy and warming.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and swirl to coat. Then add chopped red onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, pumpkin, and salt and for cook 5 minutes more, stirring often. Add stock and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let it simmer for another 25 minutes or until pumpkin is tender.
After that blend all the ingredients, add some chilly seeds and sprinkle it with buckwheat and pumpkin oil. Enjoy every sip.


When you're finished, take time for your skin. Use Flower and Spice Instant glow calming exfoliator, apply a generous amount onto dry skin and gently massage it with a circular motion for a minute. Leave it on for another minute than rinse it off with a warm water or warm wet towel.
There. You are now »inside out« ready for your Saturday evening.
It's all about the time you take for the ritual.
