Holiday Tree Ornaments

What you need ::

1 cup applesauce

1 cup ground cinnamon

15 drops Christmas Spirit or Light the Fire essential oil

Decorative string or ribbon

Directions ::

In a bowl, combine the applesauce and cinnamon. You want the dough to be able to form a ball without being too sticky. Add additional applesauce or cinnamon if needed. Sprinkle a clean surface with cinnamon. Place the dough on the surface and sprinkle with more cinnamon. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to ¼ inch think, sprinkling with more cinnamon to keep from sticking. Cut out into desired shapes and place on a sheet pan so that they aren’t touching. Use a skewer to poke a hole into each ornament (to attach string). Bake at 200 degrees for 1.5-2 hours or until rock hard. Loop a decorative string through the ornament and hang on your tree.

Kiss Me Under the Mistletoe lip balm

What you need ::

2 tablespoons beeswax pellets

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons shea butter

1 tsp cocoa

36 drops Peppermint essential oil

12 lip balm containers

Directions ::

Melt beeswax in a small pan or crockpot over low heat. Add coconut oil, cocoa, peppermint eo, and shea butter until all ingredients are just melted. Using a small medicinal dropper, pour the melted liquid into your lip balm containers. Add a few extra drops to the top after filling each container as the ingredients will shrink as they cool.
