These pine cones make a beautiful decoration for the holidays and they smell amazing. :))) Perfect for Yule!
What You Need
– Pine Cones
– Spray Bottle
– Cinnamon Oil
– Clove Oil
– Mandarin Oil
– Pine Oil
– Myrrh Oil
– Plastic Bag
– Optional decorations
First we want to make the Yule essential oil. Combine the following into a suitable container. Please note this oil is strong. We will be adding it to water for the pine cones. Later you can add it to a suitable oil if you wish. :)) If you wish to just make one pinecone you can divide this oil by 10 to give you the right amount for one.
– 20 drops cinnamon oil
– 20 drops clove oil
– 10 drops mandarin oil
– 10 drops pine oil
– 20 drops frankincense oil
– 20 drops myrrh oil
Once your oil is ready mix a bit of it with water in a small spray bottle. You don’t need to fill the spray bottle. Just about 1/3 of the way, dependent upon how many you are making.
Dust off the pine cone and make sure it is free of any debris.
Spray it with the water and essential oil mix. Be generous with the spray but do not soak the pine cone.
Set it into a plastic bag that seals.
Let it stay in that bag for 24 to 48 hours.
Once it is set you can decorate it if you wish with sequins, ribbons, glitter, or anything else to make it festive. You can also use fake snow or paint on them. Another idea is to string them as a garland.
They are wonderful to hang around the house. :))))
Love and Blessings,
