Let’s make your house smell like Christmas!
You know what guys? As I’m typing this, it’s 9:45AM and I am STILL in my PJs. STILL trying to get caffeinated. STILL not wanting to get up and do anything. It’s just one of those “But my PJs are SOOOOOOO comfy days.” Ya hear me? Anybody else have days like this? I know I’ll force myself to get off the couch soon and stop playing Bubble Mania on my phone and make a day of it. Cause, you know, guilt. It’s a bitch.
Let’s make your house smell like Christmas! For reals this time……….
You know what I’m a total nerd for? POT SIMMERS! Love em. You just throw handy stuff into a pot and it makes the house smell great! Not fake. Not artificial, although I am loving the Thymes Frasier Fir cleaner these days, not perfumey, great. It just smells great. Like the wintery outdoors in a perfume bottle. Like a giant hug from Santa himself. GIANT HUG FROM SANTA!
Aaaaaaaaaand I just heard my roommate turn on the shower. Guess I’ll have to wait until he’s done to take one myself. hee-hee.
Really though, this pot simmer is:
- 2 slices large orange
- 1/4 cup juniper berries
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- 4 cups water
Place all ingredients in a pot and simmer on your stove for at least 1 hour. Continue to simmer, adding water as needed, throughout the day for a stronger scent.
This pot simmer can be stored after use and reboiled for up to 3 days.
