In fact, if anyone can help me find some more information on those horrid things, like their ingredients, and some good good cases or facts about how breathing the fumes in too long can lead to any sort of sickness, my co-workers and I are trying to at least present a case to get the damn things moved to an open area!!

common sense dictates that fumes of any kind can be harmful to some people.
All I can say is the d**n scented pine cones give me a migraine and I know it gives others migraines.
You might research some sites online for back-up information to present.

Hi - Im the orginal poster. Ive complained at my local JoAnns but haven't gotten much of a response. My local JoAnns (and Micheals ) get so crazy busy this time of year maybe they just dont care if those pinecones keep some of us out of the store.

You poor thing, I couldn't imagine working there - I cant really even go in the store til after Jan.

I've googles a little - lots of web sites on how to make your own pinecones and places to buy "homemade" pincones (ie etsy shops) but no real information about what the heck the ones from China are made from....

This is a permeating smell and does anyone know the answer? I love the smell but not sure the smell loves me...


Hi I am sorry that the Cinnamon Broom is bothering you however there is no drug or alcohol ingredient that could cause such symptoms. I know this because I make them. Especially if it is still in the bag. Now the headache that is a possibility due to the strength of scent on the broom and some do not handle cinnamon well. It will feel like a burn if your skin if it comes in contact and eyes burning are from the strength as well. Since you love the smell please know that we carry many other products and also have 46 other scents. The number is 1-800-635-1890. Speak with Angie she works in the mail order. Thank you for purchasing it and again I am sorry for the inconvienence.

Please know that the Pinecones that are in Joanns and Michaels do not come from our company.
