Today, I am using items from my yard…PINECONES! I thought that it would be super fun to make scented pinecones to go inside my house for this big chili cook-off I am hosting! So, in the process of cleaning up our yard (guys, it was still a construction zone from the demo/rebuild of our house…and I have legit put in over 40 hours trying to clean it up) I grabbed a few handfuls of pinecones and repurposed them!


  • Pinecones
  • Essential oils – I used doTerra Harvest Spice and Wild Orange
