This is the perfect time of year to make your own natural aroma simmering pot recipes. With fall and winter we tend to move indoors more and adding some scents of the season makes it that much more homey and appealing for our family and friends. You will love the way these simple ingredient stove top scents will make your home so inviting for those long colder nights indoors.
Maybe you like burning seasonal scented candles, but haven’t tried any natural scents. Or maybe you would like to have a more natural alternative for adding scents to your home. Whatever your preference there couldn’t be anything more quick and easy than homemade aroma recipes that you can simmer on your stove with common ingredients from your kitchen.
I have created 5 natural aroma simmering pot recipes to get you started, but feel free to change these up and make them the way that appeals to your senses. Look in your cupboards and refrigerator and see what you have available.
Here is a list of the type of herbs, spices, fruits, and essential oils you will want to look for:
•Fruit peelings (Essential Oils) : orange, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit or apple
•Herbs (Essential Oils): lavender, peppermint, sage, thyme, etc.
•Extracts (Essential Oils) : vanilla, almond, orange, and lemon, etc
•Spices (Essential Oils) : cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, etc
•Fill a saucepan ¾ full with water along with your desired combination of peelings, spices, herbs, extracts or essential oils. Bring mixture to a boil. As soon as it reaches the boiling point, reduce heat to low and simmer. You can also use a small slow cooker to do this. If using a slow cooker, just set heat to high and then turn down. Replenish with more water as needed.
•You can reuse your mixture 1-2 times, depending on the ingredients you put in your mix. Just store in a glass jar with a lid in the refrigerator. The mixture will keep for a few days.
•As you cook stovetop scents you will notice that the ingredients don’t stay pretty looking. You can always refresh your mixture with some new orange or lemon slices to float on the top.
Have fun trying your own combinations of fruit peelings, herbs and spices, and use what you have on hand. You will love how nice and cozy your home smells!
