Easy Simmer Pot Recipe

An orange slice and cinnamon sticks

Take a moment to think back on a special memory you have from your childhood—maybe it’s playing in freshly fallen snow, cookies made by your grandma or opening your pencil box on the first day of school. As I brought up each of those scenarios, I almost guarantee you could SMELL every one of them. Smell is such a pivotal part of our senses, making it a powerful tool to have in our hosting belt.

Each time I invite guests over, I love to have a candle going to make my house smell welcoming. However, as more and more people become conscious about trying to reduce toxins in their lives, you may be looking for a more natural alternative to making your home smell inviting.

Enter the simmer pot: an all-natural way to make your house smell cozy during colder months. Simmer pot ingredients can also be placed in a jar and make wonderful gifts for Christmas, or hostess presents!

Easy Simmer Pot Recipe:

  • 4 cinnamon sticks

  • 5 orange slices

  • 5 lemon slices

  • 1 cup of cranberries

  • 2 teaspoons of nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon of cloves

Fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add ingredients and let them boil for a few minutes, then reduce the heat and slowly simmer. Add more water as needed throughout the day and enjoy!
