Halloween might just be the best holiday of them all. How do I know this? Take a look at all the fun we’ve been having here at Organic Authority this year, with ideas and tips for you from Halloween cocktails to freaky food ideas. Here’s a sneak peek at how we put a little organic style into this festival of fun.

Whether you’ve got little ones or not, everyone can enjoy a good jack-o-lantern carving. Scents and smells can strongly trigger memories because your olfactory bulb (the nose in your brain) is in the limbic system, which is linked to memory and feelings. In other words, as soon as your blade punctures the orange pumpkin flesh, you’ll most likely time-travel back to your childhood Halloween days. Maybe your inner-child will deliver an artistic surge that can help you win the Organic Authority Pumpkin Carving Contest. And if you need some pumpkin carving tips, check out our 17 Dos and Don’ts of Pumpkin Carving.
