How cute are these? Set of 10 wood slice tags (each is 2-2.5 inch diameter). Perfect for a gift tag or ornament. Add a few drops of white fir or douglas fir essential oil and even your artificial tree will smell like it was just cut fresh from the Christmas tree farm. Add a couple more drops of essential oil every few days as needed.

4)  Cinnamon-Scented Pinecones

If you have collected pinecones from your yard or nature, then first start with baking the bugs out of your pinecones.  Bake in 200 degree oven for 1 hour and then let completely cool

If you bought your pinecones at a store or are reusing ones from your collection of decorations, then you can skip the baking step.

Place your pinecones in a large glass or stainless steel bowl.  Sprinkle  pinecones with 15-20 drops of cinnamon essential oil (or Christmas blend of your choice).  Toss them to coat.  Cover bowl tightly.  Every couple of days shake pinecones to distribute essential oil and scent.  After a few weeks the pinecones are ready to use.

6) Rosemary & Spearmint Gel Air Freshener

Have you tried making a gel air freshener? These are incredibly simple to make. It’s just polymer absorbent crystals (like these), water, and essential oils. Couldn’t be easier.

Here’s the recipe: 1 tsp water-storing crystal (like this), 1 cup hot water, and 20 drops essential oil. Stir together until well mixed. Keep gel freshener in glass jar without a lid (so that the gel/oil mixture can easily scent the air).
