Today's Tip
Holiday Fireplace Logs
When making Holiday logs use 1 drop of essential oil per log and only one log per fire. After applying the essential oil to the log be sure to let it sit for enough time that the essential oil soaks through the log. If not, it may spark, as essential oils are flammable. Some choices are Sandalwood, Frankincense, Myrrh, Cypress,Pine, Spruce and Cedarwood. Sign up for more daily tips at Yahoo Groups
