There’s something about the smell of Christmas that immediately puts a smile on our faces. It’s the only holiday with a signature scent, and we’re all for getting your fill while the season’s here.
To quickly and easily fill your whole home with the warm aroma we associate with the holiday, simply make your own scented pinecones that double as seasonal décor. Grab your little ones and head out for a walk to gather pinecones. We love how this looks when you grab a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. Once you’re back at home, all you have to do is wash the pinecones, dry them in the oven, and let them sit in a plastic bag with essential oils of your choosing for a week.

As they sit, the oils infuse into the pinecones, so you can scatter them around the house after a week to make your whole home smell delicious. Or pile them into a glass bowl or cloche for a stunning centerpiece that fills the room with a warm, cozy scent that will make all your guests feel at ease.
