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?

Good grief - fancy that one!
Just on a quick note, a small pumpkin fell on the supermarket shelf yesterday and landed on my big toe - ouch! toe survived and so did I :)

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

Debra She Who Seeks said...

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

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

Inquiring minds really do want to know.

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

Huggybear said...

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

If this would have actually worked, I would have loaded up on pumpkin. I HATED my freckles when I was a kid!
