k o o b e t o Idea N Autumn Pinecone Firestarter WHAT YOU NEED Soy wax or beeswax Pinecones Cinnamon essential oil Clove essential oil Wild Orange essential oil String for dipping into wax Colored crayons (optional) Salt (optional) Tip: Depending on the salt, the flames of the starters will burn a certain color (Epsom salts, white flame; table salt, yellow flame; salt substitute, violet flame). *Note: After you are done dipping you pinecone into the wax, leave 1 inch of wax-covered string to serve as a wick for easier lighting. INSTRUCTIONS Cut the string long enough to use for dipping the pine- cone into the wax and tie a knot at the top of the pinecone.* In a double boiler or a metal bowl resting in pot of water, melt 2–3 crayons along with enough wax to coat your pine cone. Add essential oil; the more drops you put in, the stronger the scent will be. Holding the string, dip the pinecones and set them on wax paper to dry. Keep dipping and drying to create a thick layer of wax on the pinecones. Coat with salt immedi- ately after the last wax coat, if desired.
