PSL. Ultimate cult classic to some, epitome of crimes against tastebuds to others, here at Vellum St we fully embrace the Pumpkin Spice trend, as long as the goods actually contain that big orange bulbous beast of bounty!
Warm and tasty pumpkin is a crowd favorite, both for the mouth AND the skin, and we add it by way of dried and pureed local pumpkins left over from last seasons pies and muffins, while the wafts of warm coffee and vanilla will have you thinking Jack-O himself is in the room! Pumpkin is full of skin smoothing vitamins (particularly A, C, & E), as well as fruit enzymes which are a gentle natural exfoliant.
Cinnamon, along with the black tea and various other spices in the Chai blend we give a continued life to after Random Tea Room brews heaps of their signature Chai Masala, an aromatic brew composed of Harmutty Estate Assam blended with hand-ground spices. Green cardamom harmonizes with cinnamon, cloves, star anise, black pepper, cayenne and nutmeg. There’s nothing quite like it!
But once the tea is brewed, the leaves and spices still have much to give! While not robust enough to brew more tea, there’s plenty left to infuse our grass fed tallow with both the scent and the skin loving benefits of the mix, combining to offer an array of skin soothing benefits, providing increased circulation, and antiseptic qualities to help cleanse any small cuts and scrapes you may have acquired. They even give acne a run for their money.
With our own signature blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, & ginger essential oils, vanilla absolute, and coffee oil, it’s a culmination of something we’d gladly chug a hot cuppa…or suds up and slather liberally with!
The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker...we don't think there's a product on the market that comes closer to bringing these three together! What you breath IN is just as important as what you put ON your skin or IN your mouth. Tallow & beeswax burn clean, as do our standard Wooden Wicks (which come with the audible bonus of a relaxing crackle). Scented with essential oils & colored with plants & clays, our candles can safely be used for aromatherapy or massage. For best results, trim wick to ⅛” before burning & allow melt pool to extend to edges before extinguishing, especially on the initial burn. Never burn candle unattended, or on uneven or flammable surfaces.
*As always, made with the best dang skin loving, grass fed, local tallow we could find, and local, unadulterated beeswax
