The Perfect Fall Potpourri
Speaking of naturally cozy autumn, here is the latest simmer pot mix that I've been thoroughly enjoying for the past few days. It’s very autumn-y and totally fitting for this week since the calendar autumn is just 3 days away! Crazy right? Anyway, when my friend Sofia came over yesterday she said it smelled like the perfect fall potpourri. The mix of orange peel, cinnamon, apple, almond, cloves and vanilla reminds me of all things special about this cozy little season. Ah, I’m ready, you? xo
Here is what you will need:
- the peel of one orange
- one cut up apple
- 2 large cinnamon sticks
- 1 tablespoon of cloves
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of almond extract
- 1.5 cups of water plus plenty more for refill
Place all ingredients in a cooking pot and simmer throughout the day while adding a bit of water from time to time. Also, you can reuse this mix for three days and store it in the fridge overnight. Ta dah!
P.S: Here is another great combination that you might also like.
