We all do this every time we cook: fill the house with good (or sometimes fishy) fragrances. Heating ingredients releases their aromas into the air; the fragrance may last just a few minutes or for hours.
So why not harness the power of your stovetop to create a wonderful natural air freshener? Do this by using ingredients like citrus and herbs and gently simmering them in water to bring out an incredible airborne scent.
Amanda at Three Pines Farm just came out with a super simple, but very aromatic recipe for a spring simmer pot that we’d like to share with you. Take a peek at her blog to get the whole story.
Rosemary and Lemon Simmer Pot
Bring a large saucepan or pot of water to simmer. Add a handful of chopped fresh rosemary, one teaspoon of vanilla extract and one sliced lemon to the water. Enhance with a few drops of lemon and/or rosemary essential oils if you have them. Let simmer very slowly until your home is infused with scent.
