Influence Your State of Mind...with your pantry

Few things affect our state of mind more than our sense of smell. We can get a whiff of something and be transported through time to our most significant memories.

Recently, I was cleaning my fridge and found an orange that was, shall we say neglected. It was not technically bad, but it was beyond the realm of ripeness that I'm ok with. Thus began my simmer pot experience.

I checked my pantry and next thing I knew, I had a pot of sliced orange, cloves, cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla simmering away. I felt like a mad scientist.

The smell was amazing!

Simmer pots really can not be much simpler. If you have a container for heating, your fave fall fruits and spices, and water, you're set!

Popular ingredients are apples, oranges, cranberries, lemons, whole cloves, bay leaves, star anise, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, rosemary, and whole cloves, just to name a few.

Mix and match however you like, even creating your own signature scent combination. Let your creativity shine!

These scents will inspire nostalgia as well as acting as a humidifier for the dry winter months ahead.

On a side note, a jars of dried ingredients for a simmer pot would make excellent presents in December. Thoughtful, easy, and enjoyed by all!
