Perfumed Pinecones

Holiday


Mandi Ehman from Life Your Way gives us another easy, fast and awesome idea!! Earlier this fall – my children and I went on a nature walk. We accumulated a few pinecones and other odds and ends. They begged me not to throw them out, so they have sat in a dish since gathering dust. When I saw this idea I knew how I could salvage those pinecones!! Mine were already dried – but Mandi is very good & gives us directions on how to dry them if all you can find is fresh ones!

Pinecone

What you’ll need:

  • Pinecones (fresh or dry, for fresh see *helpful tips below)
  • Cinnamon Leaf essential oil
  • Water
  • Spray bottle
  • Large plastic bag

What you’ll do: 

  1. Place pinecones in plastic bag
  2. In spray bottle, mix 1 ounce of water and 20-30 drops of cinnamon leaf essential oil
  3. Spray the pinecones until the water is gone
  4. Allow bag to sit for 5-7 days, so the pinecones fully absorb the scent

 

*helpful tip: if you have fresh pinecones –> wash them in soapy water to rid them of the sticky sap. Then dry in an oven set to 200 degrees for about 45 minutes. This allows them to dry, melt off any residual sap and kill the nasty bugs that might be  hiding inside! Keep an eye on them while they are drying, the sap may cause some smoking!!

Once your pinecones are “done” – remove from the bag and place in a dish or basket and allow the lovely scent of cinnamon to waft though your home. For those of you with little kids – don’t despair – place these high enough so they are not at “face level” and make sure you’re using them in a medium-large room. Since this isn’t being applied directly to the skin – there isn’t any concern over irritation. ***DO NOT allow your children to play with these, and keep them out of reach of very young kids***

Spectacular Shower Disks

Holiday


I have seen a lot of these shower disks. Many times you add the scent prior to packaging them up. I wanted to easily be able to customize scents or purposes when I wanted. So I left out the essential oils in the beginning and only dropped it on the disk when I was ready to use it! Now, when someone isn’t feeling well we can use essential oils geared toward that! Need a bit of energy or a good realizing shower before bed? Again – easy to customize and these make great gifts with your own essential oil blends in small containers like these 2 ml sample bottles. Ok, let’s make this fun project…

ShowerDisks

 

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup water
  • you won’t add essential oils until you’re ready to use them, after baking

What you’ll do:

  1. Mix baking soda and water to form a thick paste
  2. Press into silicon mold of your choice
  3. Bake at 200 degree for 30 minutes
  4. Shut off oven, allow to cool
  5. Then move to counter and allow mold to sit overnight
  6. Un-mold after 24 hours
  7. Store in airtight container

 

To use, place on the back of the shower floor, not directly under water spray but close enough that some water hits it. Note that these are PLAIN and you can customize them by adding 5-8 drops of the essential oil of your choice (Energy for the morning, Sniffle Stop for a younger child with a cold, etc) They are pretty and functional!

We only have a few days of sales left! Make sure you’ve made your list – we still have a few surprises in store for you!! Stay tuned for tomorrows post with more packaging ideas!!

Today is Day 19 of 25 Days of Christmas

Packaging! Let’s put it all together!

Holiday-3


I’ve shown you a few creative ways to incorporate essential oils into your packaging this year! Now, let’s take a look at the final products!! You can see that I’ve assembled all the items I will need to get my homemade gifts packed up! I have a wooden crate, some old jars, labels, ribbon, scissors and my lotion bars, soaps, and other homemade goodies!!

GiftPackaging

Use that shredded paper in the bottoms on your  gift boxes or bags

Tins, glass containers, bottles and old

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use cheap materials, like brown lunch sacks. I used decorative scissors to trim the edge, then folded it over and punched hole through the bag & tag! Run a bit of ribbon through it and you’re done.

Screen Shot 2014-12-13 at 2.11.36 PM

 

 

 

 

 

The printable labels are great for on the gift itself, or to use as tags on the packages! You can even use fancy scissors to cut them out!

The final product! These are all

Containers can be customized using spray paint, awesome chalkboard stickers, or other creative scrapbooking items! Truly the sky is the limit here, and I encourage you to reuse things that you might otherwise throw away!! Have fun, involve the kids and I hope that all your packages come out looking as fantastic as the products you made for your friends and family!

Packaging Ideas Part 2

Holiday


We all want to have pretty packages under the tree!! Use these fun ideas to make your packages extra special and reuse some materials you might have around your home! I buy most of my canned goods in glass jars. I have tons of peanut butter, pasta sauce, and pickle jars. I wanted a way to use them up – but still have them be presentable and pretty for gift giving! First, I needed to clean them up. Then I used spray paint to make the lids beautiful! I use chalkboard paint so I can label the top of the jar. However, you can use any color you wish! Now – just add a cute label and you have the perfect container for your homemade gift!

What you’ll need:

  • old, glass jars
  • a sink full of hot tap water
  • 10 drops any citrus oil (I prefer lemon or orange)
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 TBSP hydrogen peroxide, you may need just a bit more
  • a medium cardboard box
  • Chalkboard or another color spray paint for lids

What you’ll do:

  1. Soak jars in a sink full of hot tap water
  2. after about 20 minutes, peel off as much of the paper you can
  3. Mix citrus oil with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in small glass dish
  4. Use this paste to scrub off the rest of the stickiness left from the label & glue
  5. Rinse well and allow to dry
  6. While your jars are drying, place your lids inside your cardboard box (the box is to keep the overspray from getting everywhere)
  7. Spray the lids! They may need several coats
  8. Now you can use your jars and freshly painted lids for your projects

Below, you’ll find printable labels that you can use for your gifts! The circles are perfect for wide mouth mason jar lids (or jars with a similar sized lid) and the others can be attached with rubber cement or any adhesive you wish! You can even find full sticker sheets in the office section of most stores now. You can print them off and cut them out to stick onto your homemade creations!

 

And now – what you’ve all been waiting for:

{Check this out —> this is our NEW body care line!}
