With winter in full swing and Christmas almost here, our feelings of excitement, joy, and stress are all mingled up together. So, I thought to bring some calm to our household. I will fill it for the next two weeks with calming scents to fill our living spaces with warmth and Christmas joy.
I picked two easy DIY shimmering pot recipes with some of my favorite scents, cinnamon, lemon, and rosemary.
Follow the easy to use recipes and fill your home with the fragrant smell of warmth and Christmas
A simmering pot of aromatic herbs and fruits is an instant way of making your home feel and smell warm and cozy
Cinnamon winter scent
Combine the cinnamon sticks and water in a small pot. Add an equal amount of cinnamon sticks to the water. So, if you are using 5 sticks add 5 cups of water to your pot.
Once your pot is filled bring the water to a boil and leave it to boil until the water starts to turn brown.
Then reduce the heat to a low temperature and let it simmer, allow the pot to simmer for at least 5 minutes before turning off the heat.
Lemon and Rosemary winter scent
You will need
- 1 lemon, sliced
- sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups of water
Mix all your ingredients into a pot and let it simmer on low heat. Turn off the heat when that beautiful scent of lemon and rosemary has filled your whole room leaving it smelling great and feeling warm and cozy.
