LABOR DAY

Sometimes, after working several hours, we just need a break! Thankfully, Labor Day gives us the ability to enjoy some relaxation. Labor Day pays tribute to the efforts and accomplishments of American workers. This holiday was developed by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Thus, the reason behind the backyard barbeques and late-night fun. It is a time to reflect on the hard work Americans put forward and spend time with family and loved ones.

While celebrating Labor Day, our P&J Trading family wanted to highlight one of our favorite fruity fragrance oils. This oil of the month is our Watermelon Fragrance Oil. Our Watermelon scented oil is the perfect way to celebrate Labor Day; all while saying goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Our P&J family loves to eat watermelon as it brings back the memory of our yearly Labor Day barbeques.

DIY: WATERMELON SCENTED FAIRY LIGHTS IN MASON JARS

One way to celebrate Labor Day with your loved ones and kiddos is a little DIY fun. Throughout the day, you can keep the family entertainment going by creating fairy lights! As the day begins to wind down and the sun sets, once the fairy lights are ready, they will begin to glow. You can even check out our fragrance oil of the month, Watermelon, to place in your fairy lights. The lights will fade the morning after, but the smell of summer will stay for good.
