After cooling them, place them in a large resealable plastic bag and close it properly. Put some drops of essential oil and add a bit clean water in a spray bottle. Shake it up and generously spray the pine cones. Leave the bag tightly closed for four to seven weeks in order to infuse the pine cones with the scent.

Scented candles:
Gather the essential materials including braided wick rope, wick tabs, unscented soy candle wax and essential oil. Assemble wicks properly. Now melt some wax. Cool then down. Pour the cooled wax in a container and allow it to sit for a few moments, watch the top and bottom to begin to solidify around the container, and then drop in the assembled tab and wick. Let the DIY candle solidify for some hours and then trim the wick down to 1/4th inch.

Peppermint sugar scrub:
You need 2 cups of sugar, ¼ cups of coconut oil, red food coloring and essential oils. Pour sugar into medium sized bowl. Mix in coconut oil, add a few drops of essential oil and divide your sugar mixture into two equal sized portions. Mix in a few drops of red food coloring to one portion. Add sugar in layers to the jar, press the sugar down with a spoon. Alternate between the pink and white layers. Add a label and ribbon to the jar.
