Its just something ive read im not entirely sure if it works))
YAY!!! Now I have a REALLY good excuse for wanting to collect pine cones and bring them home. Can't stand spiders. . .cold sweats, shakes. . .yep I hate them!! LOL

I've done the candle wax with cinnamon and nutmeg. . .smells terrific.

Thanks for posting this very useful tip for me to find!!!

Wow you guys are so creative! I live in the city so I don't have the fortune of having that stuff laying around. If I want that I either have to drive out to the burbs or buy fake cones in the store.

I'll let you know if pinecones keep spiders at bay - I live in an old house and there are always a lot of them around.
