A Fall Potpourri Simmer Pot!

When I was growing up, my mom would buy potpourri simmer pots and they always made our house smell soo good!  

And as great as a fall candle is, there is something even more amazing about real ingredients simmering away on your stove top making your house smell like the most delicious fall ever - I am not even kidding, can you tell how passionate I am about this?  This stuff iz goooood.

Anyway, this simmer pot is great for a day when company is coming over, or any day that you feel like being fancy and celebrating fall!


Put all of your ingredients in a small pot, add a bit of water, and put on the stove over low heat.


The water will eventually evaporate, so make sure you add more water as needed.

  5. Oh my goodness! I love this. I've boiled the cinnamon sticks before, but never fruit combined! This sounds like the perfect idea for Thanksgiving day or a Fall Saturday with the windows open :) I LOVE Fall!

  18. I love these yummy warm scents! Unfortunately, we have a gas stove (which is great for a lot of things!) and I can't just go crazy and leave her burn all day... which is what I really want to do!

  24. I've seen these types of things on Pinterest and always wondered if they really work! This looks like all of my favorite fall type scents in one-- now I'm wondering if I can create a sweater weather scented simmer pot :)

  25. I LOVE this! Totally pinned to try it. Something about fall and having doors/windows open makes me want to light candles with a fall scent- this will be even better!!
