I love a fragrant home!  Especially during this time of the year, the warm scents of fall and winter in the home make the atmosphere a little more cozy.  There are products all around to help enhance the scent of the home - I've tried most of them!!  But this article shared some simple ingredients to simmer on the stove to fill the home with fabulous scents!

Fragrant Home: 15 Simmering Pot Recipes

  • Fill a saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the ingredients from your favorite recipe, boil for a few minutes, then turn the heat down to simmer all day. Top up water as needed.
Caution: Set your timer for 30 minutes so you remember to top up with water. You don’t want the pot burning dry. Do not leave the house with this left heating on the stove.
