Scented Pinecones
Items Needed:

  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.
