You can make pillows, home decorations and easy and fun gifts using herbs and essential oils. Using pure essential oils instead of synthetic fragrance oils may cost a bit more, but when you add a few drops of organic cinnamon to a Christmas candle you not only get that holiday aroma, but antibacterial fighting properties as well. Real oils have healing properties that synthetics just cant' match. Use essential oils to scent potpourris, holiday wreaths, even wrapping paper. The only limit on how you can use essential oils is your imagination.
