What Is a Simmer Pot?
A simmer pot is basically a DIY air freshener made by heating fragrant herbs, fruits, and other spices in a saucepan filled with water.
- Fill your saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil.
- Add your scent ingredients and let the water continue to boil for a few more minutes.
- Lower the heat until your ingredients are—you guessed it—simmering. You can leave the pot simmering for a few hours at a time, as long as the heat stays low enough to keep it warm but not boiling.
Tip: To avoid running out of water or burning your pot, top it off with fresh, room temperature water every 30-45 minutes.
