What you Need

I sent the kids outside to collect some pinecones from the yard. We have a TON of them. If you don’t have pinecones you can pick them up pretty cheap from the craft store.  Since my pinecones came from the yard, I popped them in the oven at about 200 degrees for 20 minutes. I just wanted to make sure there were no bugs hitchhiking into the house.

I then put my pinecones into a gallon Ziploc bag and sprinkled them with a few drops of cinnamon essential oil. I zipped the bag shut and gave it a good shake. I actually let the pinecones sit in the bag for a couple hours before opening it. I felt like this gave the pinecones a good chance at absorbing the oils.

  1. I just read your post on making your own cinnamon pine cones. I would like to make some for my son and grandson.they love it.How often do you have to pick the oil on it to keep the scent going

    1. Janet, it really depends on personal preference, but I would say not often. I just opened my fall storage tote from the garage the other day and could immediately smell the pinecones. I did freshen them up with a few more drops of cinnamon, but you could definitely still smell them from last year (Which is amazing). Hope that helps.
