Spring is the season of new beginnings and fresh starts. With spring comes the season of cleaning and purging, which is a great way to get rid of unwanted items and make space for new things. One of the best ways to eliminate unwanted odours in your home is by using a simmer pot filled with natural ingredients that will make your house smell amazing!
The benefits of using a simmer pot are endless. Not only will it make your house smell incredible, but it also creates an inviting atmosphere for family and friends.
One of the reasons we love simmering pots is because they're fun! It's easy to get bored with candles and perfumes because they can be expensive and sometimes toxic. Making your own simmer pot allows you to have control over what goes inside, so you can chop and change the ingredients based on your mood, season, scent preference, or the benefits you are seeking from it.
Here is one of our favourite Springtime simmer pot recipes:
Lemon and Rosemary Simmering Pot Air Freshener
1 large fresh lemon (sliced)
4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups of filtered water
Simply place all of the ingredients into a pan and simmer on very low heat on the stovetop. As the water begins to evaporate, keep topping up the pan with more water. We recommend using this method once or twice a week to keep your home smelling and feeling super fresh and clean. The liquid can also be cooled and decanted into a glass spray bottle and spritzed around the house as a handy room freshener.
