Cinnamon Pine Cones Recipe 1

Everyone’s familiar with cinnamon pine cones. Every year when Christmas rolls around stores start stocking their shelves with the heavily scented décor. You can smell then from a mile away! And I LOVE it!

But why buy when you can make your own? It’s SO easy! And pretty cost effective too (have a pine tree in your backyard? Collect your own pine cones!)

Here’s how:

You’ll need some pine cones (obviously). If you don’t have a backyard supply, no worries! Bulk Apothecary carries a variety of unscented ones.

If you’re collecting them from your backyard, you’ll need to dry them out- which will also open the cones and kill any germs. To do this, Place your pine cones on a cookie tray and stick them in the oven at 200 degrees for about 2 hours.

If you pick up a bag of unscented ones, you’re good to go!

In the spray top bottle mix the essential oil with a splash of water (just as you would if you were making potpourri), reserving a small amount of oil for later.

Shake the bottle and liberally spray the pine cones. Make sure to toss the pine cones and spray to get every side.

With the small amount of reserved oil, use the dropper and place a few drops of the concentrated cinnamon oil on each pine cone. This can be repeated anytime you feel the pine cones aren’t as strong as the originally were.

Place in a bowl and distribute around the house for easy décor and wonderful fragrance during the holiday season! So easy, right?!

I mixed mine with a few cinnamon sticks and some red botanicals for a little pop of color.

  1. I want a Christmas tree scent for my cones. So I’m going to try the pine needle essential oil to do mine. Only, I put mine in a sealable bag and let them sit for a couple of weeks then put them out.
