The comforting smell of Fall – cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and an array of different spices – Fall smells divine and it’s so easy to infuse your home with these feel-good scents. Instead of reaching for a chemically laden, artificially scented room spray, try making your own potpourri simmer pot to infuse your home with autumnal scents.
Grab a large saucepan, fill it with water and bring to a boil. Then the fun begins! You can change-up this simmer pot to whatever you have on hand, or to whichever scents bring you the most pleasure.
Choose from any of the following to create your ultimate autumnal pot, or get creative and add your own:
-Orange and Lemon Rinds
Add your favorite ingredients to the pot and let the water boil for a few minutes before turning the heat down to a simmer. Be careful not to let the pan run dry – keep adding water if and when needed.
This is a great way to use up fruit rinds and skins that normally end up in the trash!
