Scented Pine Cones
Nature is such a great place, go take husband, parent, kids, pet, neighbor, just someone and go out to the woods and find some pine cones. Maybe while you get a Christmas Tree look for some pine cones.
- Wash pine cones to clean off sap and any hitchhiking critters.
- Bake for about 30min at 200° F on an aluminum foil-covered baking sheet.
- Spray the pine cones with essential oil-infused water using your favorite Essential oil. I love Christmas Spirit or a Pine scent for the Holidays, or your own custom blend of oils. You can also sprinkle drops of essential oils directly on the pine cones. I will put them into a Zip Lock Bag and let them sit for about two weeks to get a more intense smell.
Scented pine cones can be used to make wreaths and garlands. You can also screw a small eyelet hook to the bottom of a scented pine cone to make Christmas ornaments.
