If you find yourself sneezing or bothered by watery eyes and an itchy, runny nose at this time of year, the problem could be your Christmas tree.

Scented Beeswax Heart

December 16th, 2007

Scent a room with this decorative accent. Use a cookie cutter to cut a heart shape from a Sheet of natural Beeswax. Wrap the heart in cheesecloth and infuse it with a few drops of Rose Otto. Place the wrapped heart in a plastic bag for a week. Remove and discard the cloth and glue a ribbon hanger to the back of the heart. You can even decorate it with dried flowers and a bow. Hang it in the kitchen or even the bath!!
