Cedar

  • 1/4 cup almond or other carrier oil
  • 8 drops pine oil
  • 8 drops cedar
  • 5 drops juniper
  • ground myrrh – approx 5 or 6 small lumps
  • ground frankincense – approx 5 or 6 small lumps

Grind the frankincense and myrrh into a very very fine powder. Heat them with the carrier oil over very very low heat or in a small potpourri cooker for about an hour or so – when the fragrance is released you will know it is time.

Once that is done add your essential oils and combine all ingredients. For a decorative touch, add a sprig of pine or cedar to the bottle.
