Today I have a super cute and simple idea for you: making your own simmer pot to make your home smell great. I love cosiness in my home and a nice scent completes the picture. Especially now, during the cosy winter season!
Make your own simmer pot: natural fragrance for your home
A simmer pot is really nothing more than a pan of water filled with natural fragrance ingredients, which you let simmer gently on the cooker. The whole house then fills with the most wonderful scents.
What you need
- A pan or small soup pot
- Natural ingredients for the fragrance (here are some ideas):
- For a warm winter fragrance: cinnamon sticks, orange peels, and a few cloves
- For a fresh spring scent: lemon peels, rosemary and a vanilla pod
- Feel free to experiment with what you like!
How to make it
- Fill the pan about two-thirds full with water.
- Add your chosen fragrance makers. Don’t be too sparing, especially citrus and spices are best in generous amounts.
- Bring the water to the boil and then turn the heat very low so that it simmers gently.
- Keep an eye on the pot and top up water if necessary. Don’t let it boil completely dry!
