Eventually the drinking took its toll on Jack, and he died. Flaky Jack's soul prepared to enter Heaven through the gates of St. Peter, but he was stopped. And Jack was told by God that because of his sinful lifestyle of deceitfulness and drinking, he was not allowed into Heaven. Jack then went down to the Gates of Hell and begged for admission into underworld. Satan, fulfilling his obligation to Jack, could not take his soul. To warn others, he gave Jack an ember, marking him a denizen of the netherworld. From that day on until eternity's end, Jack is doomed to roam the world between the planes of good and evil, with only an ember inside a hollowed turnip to light his way.

Irish Folktale, Date Unknown

The origin for the practice of making and lighting Jack o' Lanterns at Halloween comes from the ghost story of Stingy Jack, who tricked the Devil into not allowing him into hell, but was also not a good enough person to enter Heaven, nd so he was doomed to walk the earth as a spirit. This tinted balm shade is pumpkin orange, thanks to the legacy that the story of Stingy Jack leaves us at Halloween.
