Simmer Pot Recipes
When I say simmer pot, I really mean a small normal pot on the stove on low that I switch on and off through the day. I should probably invest in a 'real' one though.
I adore a happy, comfy smelling home, especially the au naturale way.
My favorites are:
Pumpkin pie spices and sometimes a cinnamon stick in plain water.
Apples (I save peels, or if they are almost bad cut them up and put them in the freezer) + a cinnamon stick in water
Citrus peels in water (same as the apples, just stick the peels in a bag in the fridge) I've tried all but grapefruit. Orange and spice works well together. Lemon and lime work well together.
A stranger one, lime and mint. Makes the house smell mega-fresh.
I'd like to try some plain mint or mint and cocoa powder around the holidays. I'll let you know how that goes.
I will usually use the same concoction a few days in a row.
What about you ladies? Do you have any homemade simmer pot ideas to make the house smell lovely?
