Smells Like Christmas Simmer Pot

I pride myself on maintaining a non-toxic home.  This includes using eco-friendly cleaners free of harsh chemicals, and burning beeswax candles exclusively. With the arrival of holidays, I decided to create my own version of  a Christmas scented candle with this Simmer Pot recipe.

In a pot, mix together the following ingredients, bring to a boil, then simmer.  As the mixture evaporates, you can continue to add water and new orange peels, as the scents from this mixture will last up to 2 days. Leave the pot uncovered.

Smells Like Christmas
4 cups of water
1 cup of clementine or orange peels
2 Tbsp of ground cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 tsp of ground or whole clove
1/2 tsp of ginger or star anise

Enjoy! With love,
