  2. I'll be darned, Adam!
    I have been searching for this on google and find that Honey, Lemon Juice, Almond Oil, Papaya or as we say here in Australia - Paw Paws, and Cucumber, but I'm buggered if I can find this pumpkin remedy. Do you have the link?
    Cheers

    2. Sorry I was at work most of the day today. I thought the quotation marks on cure would imply that this cure did not work. It was used along with some other things to basically be wiped on your face. Because when you got pumpkin and other stuff on your face, I guess nobody is going to see your freckles

    3. Thanks Adam.
      Well that ensures that those with freckles don't go out buying pumpkins
      to get rid of freckles!
      Amusing.

  5. How did this work? Does a person need to eat the pumpkin to get rid of the freckles?

  6. Did it involve rubbing pumpkin pulp on the skin? Inquiring minds want to know!

    1. Or you just rub your face all over the outside of the pumpkin?

      Inquiring minds really do want to know.
