Do you buy scented decorations from the store to put up in your home during the holiday season? Most items that you will find at the store contain various chemicals and harmful additives. If you want something that is homemade and chemical free, then you can easily make cinnamon scented pine cones to display. You just need real pine cones.

Making your own cinnamon scented pine cones is actually really easy to do. Your oven will be an important part of this process as the pine cones need to be heated. Heating the pine cones opens them up and also helps to kill bacteria or any bugs that are present.

The key to making cinnamon scented pine cones is using cinnamon essential oil. This oil is potent and a little will go a long way. The only downside is the pine cones will need about four weeks or so for the cinnamon scent to completely infuse. Additional scents can also be added.
