Good Monday morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I started bringing out some of my Christmas decorations over the weekend (it will be in stages because I just can’t quite bring myself to have the tree up before Thanksgiving). Every year I pull out the decorations it never fails that there’s at least 1 that I forget about and then get so excited about it all over again. I guess there are some advantages to having the worst memory ever. 😉
Something I always love pulling out of the decorations that really gets me in the Christmas mood is my basket of cinnamon pine cones. Except that when they’ve been in a bin in the crawl space for almost a year, they’re not so cinnamon anymore.
I’ve found the solution and have made it into a gift idea that’s perfect for a hostess or holiday gift. Using Nature’s Truth Cinnamon Essential Oil, I made a wonderful spray I call Christmas in a Bottle because that’s what is smells like to me! You know I love my essential oils in sugar scrubs and linen spray and I’m loving them in this warm and cozy spray! It’s super easy to make, and I’m even sharing my printable label and gift card insert!
“Christmas in a Bottle” Cinnamon Pine Cone Spray
- ¾ cup of distilled water
- About a half cap full (or 6 – 7 drops) of Nature’s Truth Cinnamon Essential Oil
- Spray bottle (I use empty body spray bottles)
- Add ¾ cup of distilled water into a spray bottle and add essential oil, mix well.
- Shake well before each use.
Place Cinnamon Pine Cones, Christmas in a Bottle spray and gift set insert into a festive basket for an adorable (and wonderful smelling!) gift! Bonus points for some pine branches if you can get your hands on any. 😉
Another of my favorite ways to use essential oils is with a diffuser, it’s such a cozy and relaxing feeling to have wonderful smells permeating the air with a steady stream of scent!
I got my Nature’s Truth Cinnamon Essential Oil and Diffuser on Target.com, but you can find their large selection of essential oils in many stores in the vitamin aisle.
