3 Fall Simmerpot Recipes – Seasonal Home Scents

Also known as stovetop potpourri, Stovetop Simmer Pots are a simple way to bring scents of the season into your home. By filling a pot on your stove with water + common ingredients found in most kitchen pantries, you can create your own delicious simmer pot.

Bonus: if you live in an arid climate, this is a fabulous way to add some moisture to your air.

These are very popular in fall and around the holidays but I love to use them year round with whatever fruits or herbs I have around.

To get you in the fall spirit, here are 3 of my favorite fall stovetop simmer pot recipes.
