Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil Ornaments

These simple homemade cut-out ornaments are charmingly rustic and old-fashioned with a spicy, cinnamon leaf aroma.


1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil
1/2 teaspoon Clove Bud Essential Oil 
3 cups All-purpose Flour
2 cups Salt
1 cup Cinnamon
2 cups Water
Parchment Paper
1 plastic straw
Ribbon, raffia


1. In a large mixing bowl, measure and mix dry ingredients. Add water and oil gradually, stirring continuously until liquid is completely absorbed. Knead for a few minutes. Cover and place in refrigerator for 1 1/2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
3. Roll dough flat on parchment paper to 1/4-inch thick. Cute with a cookie cutter or make your own designs with a small knife. Using straw, place a small hole in the top of each cut-out.
4. Place ornaments on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 1 hour.
5. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven, turn ornaments over and place back in oven. Bake for 1 more hour, or until ornaments are very firm, them remove and set aside to cool.
6. Thread with ribbons and hang on tree!

To renew the scent, just add a few drops of essential oil to the surface of the ornaments.

Where did you get the cute cookie stamp? Joann’s didn’t have any…

How long will these last?  Will they spoil?  They are beautiful.
