Scent Your Home Naturally with these Simmer Pot Recipes

Simmer Pot Recipes

Avoid harsh and unhealthy petroleum-based paraffin, artificially scented candles. Instead use a simmer pot to make your home smell like you’ve been baking delicious goodies all day!

Instructions: Fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the ingredients from your favorite recipe, continue to boil for a few minutes, then turn the heat down to simmer. Add water as needed, usually every 30 minutes or so.

Caution: Set your timer for 30 minutes so you remember to top up with water. You don’t want the pot burning dry. Do not leave the house with this left heating on the stove.
