The Best Holiday Simmer Scent (Ever!)

It is the first full week of November and it feels good to finally be heading towards Thanksgiving. 

The kids.

The food.

The shopping chaos.

Clark Griswold and Cousin Eddie.

And the scents of the season…

The best.  (Ever!)

Here is my simple, but oh-so-heavenly simmer scent that will quickly turn your house into the place everyone wants to be.

Holiday Simmer Scent

Apple Cider

Sliced Oranges

Cinnamon Sticks

Whole Cloves

Simmer together being sure to check the liquid level occasionally as it will evaporate over time.

I’ve been doing this for years.

Best ever.
