      herbal fire starter - Pinecones and dried herbs such as rosemary, sage leaves, and cinnamon sticks make fragrant kindling for a winter fire. 1. Bundle dried herbs and small pinecones in a sheet of newspaper and secure the ends with raffia or cotton twine. 2. As you pile up logs for your fire, nestle the herb bundle underneath, with paper ends sticking out. To start the fire light the newspaper ends. We don't have a fireplace, but this would be fun in a fire pit one evening.

      Herbal Fire Starters – Pinecones and dried herbs (rosemary, sage, cinnamon sticks, etc.) come together to make earth-friendly fragrant firestarters that don’t require chemicals or lighter fluid to ignite the flame. To make: Gather dried herbs and small pinecones in a sheet of newspaper and tie the ends with raffia or cotton twine. When you stack the logs for your fire, nestle the herb bundle underneath, with paper ends sticking out. Light the newspaper ends to start the fire

      Great gift idea as well 24. Herbal Fire Starter Pinecones and dried herbs such as rosemary, sage leaves, and cinnamon sticks make fragrant kindling for a winter fire -- and, unlike composite firelogs and lighter fluid, don't rely on chemicals to ignite the flame. 1. Bundle dried herbs and small pinecones in a sheet of newspaper and secure the ends with raffia or cotton twine. 2. As you pile up logs for your fire, nestle the herb bundle underneath, with paper ends sticking out. 3. To start the fire, light the newspaper ends. As the paper burns up, the herbs inside will ignite and incinerate, giving the logs a chance to catch fire. Cost: less than $10

    Forget Kindling: Start Fires With Orange Peels

    You know that wonderful smell when you walk into Williams Sonoma? Here’s how to get it: water, sliced lemon, 3 springs of fresh rosemary and about a teaspoon of vanilla. Simmer on the stove....this smells amazing! I used 2 lemons, 3 sprigs of rosemary and about 2 tablespoons if vanilla. It only took 5 minutes to make the whole house smell fresh!
