We are exploring essential oils as a family and have fallen in love with the scents of spruce, cinnamon and orange mixed together. They smell so warm and welcoming we are adding them to our tree this year.
SUPPLIES NEEDED TO MAKE YOUR ORNAMENT:
- Clear Glass Ornament
- Whole Spices (ex: cinnamon stick, anise stars, whole cloves, orange peel, sprig of a fir tree, etc).
- 2 Tablespoons of Grapeseed Oil
- 5 drops each of the following essential oils: Orange, Cinnamon and Idaho Blue Spruce.
We rinsed out our ornament as it had gotten dusty over the summer, nailed extra air holes into the metal lid for the ornament top. Make as many holes as possible, you want to let the scents escape.
Carefully pour the oil into the ornament, add the drops of oil and the spices. Put the lid back on and hang on the tree.
When the scent runs out, add another round of essential oil drops.
Ah, the smells of Christmas!
