Fall Simmer Pot Recipes

I know I’ve said it many times, but Fall is my FAVORITE season! There’s nothing better than the smell of Fall: the scent that brings recollections of playing in the leaves, the hint of a bonfire, and that crisp cool breeze. In order to bring this scent into my home, I have been testing out different Fall simmer pot fragrances. There are SO many options out there, but this is one of my favorites.

Here’s What You’ll Need:


Place a few slices of orange & lemon into a pot of water. Add some cinnamon sticks, and a teaspoon of whole allspice and cloves {adjust the amount as you add more water}. Pour in a splash of vanilla, bring to a boil then simmer on low. Add more water as necessary. When you’re done with your recipe, store the fruit & spices in a mason jar with water in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it again.

And that’s all you need to do to enjoy the scent of Fall in your home!

    I have been doing this for years, and I love it. I have found if I save my orange and lemon peels and put them in a plastic zip-loc in the fridge, they will keep for me to use in my potpourri anytime I want to make some.
    My recipe calls for:
    2 cups of water, add orange and lemon peels/slices 3-4 of each, about 3 bay leaves, 2-3 cinnamon sticks, 10 whole cloves.
    Hope you like it.
