How to make scented pine cones? 5 Simple steps

   Easy and Free

   If you're new to my blog you may not know that I advocate green living and help others find ways to incorporate them into their lives. (and some other totally cool things like repurposing see Dollar Tree Crafting)

    Chemicals hidden in everything nowadays and with no regulations for companies to abide by. We will never know the dangers we inhale or worse let our skins absorb, unless we actively research. 
    Common issue: we want our homes to smell fabulous. But is it really worth the risk? 
So today I bring you a solution. Scented Pine Cones

Alright, first thing first. Lets gather your supplies. There's no shortage of pine cones around here and you can't beat FREE, right?
Once you have gathered the pine cones. It's time to get those pesky little hidden creatures out.
 1.soak those pinecones for about an hour 
 NOTE:they will float. place a plate on them to keep them soaking.
 2. Bake on a foiled cooking sheet for 30 mins at 200 degrees.
 3.Add cooled pine cones to the ziplock bag. 
 NOTE: your call on scent but heres what I use 20 drop of Cinnamon Leaf essential oil and 10 of Orange essential oil. (our favorite combo.)
 4. Let them soak up the scent for at least a week. Longer they sit, the better the potency. 

Now, added them anywhere you wish. I absolutely adore these in the bathroom placed around a candle. This year I think I will and them to the family center piece. 
  Where will you add them? Better yet show me your decor!

Limelight Review

As the majority of my readers know, I am friends with many amazing direct sellers.  From Tupperware to bags, to natural products, to self-defense, the direct seller's community is rapidly growing in many areas of needs. When I heard there was another makeup company, I was excited to see what would set them apart from the rest.
Upon looking at the site, I was intrigued and disappointed. I loved the website and their colors (truly perked my interest), but the prices were not budget friendly for me. Let's face it, I always feel guilty about spending money on me but if it's cheaper I feel less guilty. Make sense?  I have tested and reviewed many products over the years and naturally, I am always kinda skeptical since so many claim results but far and few provide them.
