DIY: Holiday Scented Pinecones

The best thing about fall is the holiday scents… what am I saying? The best thing about fall is EVERYTHING!! 

But mama can’t be simmering a pot of apple cider on the stove every day, amiright?

and I don’t love burning candles… fires and kids sort of make me visualize this happening in my house:

Plus, you really don’t know what you are breathing in when you burn a conventional candle. Most are filled with artificial scents – and I’m just not sure I want to be breathing that in all day. read more

Favorite Fall Essential Oil Blends

Fall is my FAVORITE season…

I love getting to pull out my boots… my sweaters… my favorite coffee mugs…

and I love the scents that fall brings!

 

But one thing I learned was that burning scented candles not only wasn’t safe with little kids around… it also wasn’t HEALTHY! 

 

Just think all those chemicals and artificial scents that you are burning are going into the AIR and you are breathing them in… without even knowing.

 

So what is the answer?

    Essential Oil Bathtub Crayons

    When a rainy day strikes, bring the fun inside with bathtub crayons. Add a little Essential Oil for play time that can be as calming or energizing as Mom wants!

    The girls have really enjoyed these, and sometimes it’s nice to have something that can be messy in a controlled way!

     

    =&0=&

    • 1 bar Unscented Castile Soap (grated)

    • 2 Tbs. hot water

    • Natural food coloring (I like this one myself)

    • Small ice cube tray, silicone mold, or cookie cutters on a baking sheet

    • Small mixing bowls

    • Essential Oils (Lavender, Lemon, Chill, Clear, & Eucalyptus have all worked great for me!)

     

     

    How to Make:

    1. Put grated soap into a medium bowl and slowly pour water onto the soap while stirring. (Note: the more water used, the longer it will take for crayons to dry)

    2. Spoon equal amounts of the mixture into small bowls and add desired Essential Oils and food coloring to each bowl. Mix to consistency of a thick paste.

    3. Scoop out and tightly pack into your molds.

    4. Set in a warm, dry place to harden for 5-7 days or in the freezer for a few hours.
