I love having a nice smelling home but really hate using chemicals so I’m always trying to experiment with new simmering pot recipes. Last autumn I shared a lovely simmering pot recipe and this year’s variation smells just as heavenly.


For a standard simmering pot add all ingredients to a small saucepan and add 2 cups of water.  Heat on low throughout the day, remembering to add water periodically.  You can pour the simmering pot into a container and refrigerate overnight and reheat the follow day-up to one week per pot. {It goes without saying to NOT leave the pot unattended!}

For gift giving you have a couple of options.  You could simply give the dry ingredients in a jar with one of these free printable gift cards attached, or you could put a whole apple in the jar with the dry ingredients for the recipient to cut when they prepare their simmering pot.  If the pot was going to be used immediate you could pre-slice the apple and fill the jar with water as well.  It’s very flexible.

    1. Hi Janet, I found mine in the normal spice area of my grocery store (Harris Teeter). You may try a more “fancy” store like Whole Foods or Fresh Market if the regular grocery store doesn’t carry them. Hope that helps! Melissa

  1. Olá Yvonne, estou amando as suas receitas mas tenho mais uma duvida, ando procurando um pulverizador para espalhar pela casa cheirinho bom, depois de por na panela tudo, passo para um frasco de spray para espalhar pela casa o cheirinho?
    Desculpa a maçada, mas ainda estou no inicio.

  2. Howdy! I simply wish to give an enormous thumbs up for the great information you’ve here on this post. I might be coming back to your blog soon.

  3. You could also fill the jar with oil, let it infuse add a wick through the lid and you have a scented oil candle.

  4. You could also use one of those candle/coffee mug warmers to heat it low and slow (looks like a small hot plate). Maybe wouldn’t have to watch it as closely, but still don’t leave unattended! 🙂

  5. This would be ideal done in a slow-cooker. We have two, so I think I’ll commandeer one just for simmering!

    Love your newsletters, thanks for sharing.

  6. I simmer it on the woodstove. I have a big cast iron pot on it to add a bit of humidity, we live in a very arid area summer and winter. It does add a lovely scent to the house as it simmers. I also just simmer eucalyptus oil in water during cold and flu season, it kills virus’.
