It’s beginning to smell a lot like winter: healthy simmering pot
Simmering pots are a great way to make your home smell wonderful without exposing yourself and your family to harmful chemicals.
Here is an easy, all natural recipe to fill your house with the warmest winter scent ever:
- 2 sliced oranges
- 1 apple, sliced in half
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 3 star anise
- 1 teaspoon-sized knob of fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon cardamom pods
- 1 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- Optional: fresh Christmas tree or wreath stems
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and fill up with water, leaving about one inch from the top. Put it on the stove and keep it at a low simmer all day long. Be sure to monitor the water level, and add more water as it simmers off.
