DIY: Scented Holiday Pinecones and Cards

· Essential Oils

The scents of pine, gingerbread, cinnamon, and citrusy orange are almost inseparable from the holiday season. Catch one hint of these aromas any time of year, and you may be instantly taken back to childhood sledding races, homemade gingerbread houses, or sweet memories with family and friends. Capture the nostalgia with these homemade scented pinecones and cards.

Scented Pinecones
Items Needed:

  • Dry pinecones
  • Your favorite essential oil

Instructions

  1. If pinecones have been collected from outside, cook in the oven at 200 degrees F for at least 30 minutes, or until the pinecones have opened.
  2. Put one drop of essential oil on each pinecone. Some of our favorite oils include Cassia, Clove, Holiday Joy, Wild Orange, Siberian Fir, or Wintergreen.
  3. Place pinecones in a decorative bowl or on your Christmas tree.

Scented Cards
Items Needed:

  • Cotton balls
  • Plastic or paper bag
  • Your favorite essential oil

Instructions

  1. Put 2-4 drops essential oil on cotton ball. We suggest Douglas Fir, Frankincense, Wild Orange, Cinnamon Bark, or Holiday Joy.
  2. Place cotton ball inside bag with cards.
  3. Seal bag and let sit overnight.

Tip: You can also make scented wrapping paper using the same directions for the scented cards.
