I've never done a stove simmer, but I've mostly banned candles thanks to two rambunctious toddlers (too scary!) so I'm really looking forward to trying these!


What a fabulous idea!! It warms up the house and smells amazing! The lemon one must smell delicious!


My mom always did this. It doesn't seem like the holidays without these amazing scents. ♡♡

They also add moisture to your home which is really nice during dry winters. :)


This is such a good idea! http://www.hannamarielei.com


This is a brilliant idea, I'm such a fan of my home smelling lovely (as I'm sure everyone is!) but not that big a candle buyer this sounds perfect for me, can't wait to give it a go!

Dear Elsie,


I never saw that in France but I'll definitly try to make a stove simmer for my house . It's such a wonderful idea and I have a lot of pine cones in my Provencal garden that await to be used.

Just home on a rainy afternoon and the house has a not too appealing wet dog aroma wafting about - as I have all the ingredients for the first suggestion here to hand, it may prove the perfect solution to my problem.

You guys know I have a deep and abiding love for all things cozy. I have shared my go-to stove simmer recipe in the past but wanted to branch out and try some new recipes this year.


If you've never used a stove simmer, here are the basics! You fill pot with water and some ingredients that will create a lovely smell, then you leave it simmering on low heat and your home will fill with the scent. It's natural and smells stronger than any candle I've ever used. You can use it for a couple days (refilling the water as it get low) and it will keep working, although it gets REAL ugly by the end. If you've never tried it, I insist you must!


Recipe 1- Bay leaves, lemon slices, lime slices, 2 cinnamon sticks and some cloves in half a lemon.


This simmer is light and fresh. I made is specifically for those of you who don't love the heavy spice scent (which I do love!). After an hour of burning, it wasn't quite strong enough for me. So I added a few sprigs of eucalyptus and an extra cinnamon stick and you could smell the light fragrance throughout all our living areas. So fresh and clean!

Recipe 2- One orange halved with cloves, 3 cinnamon sticks, fresh cranberries and lemon peels.


This one smells like apple cider (but better) and every person who walks into your home will ask you what you're baking!


Recipe 3- Pine cones, apples and cinnamon.


This one is perfect for fall! It smells like you're baking an apple pie in EVERY room of your home. So good!


Let me know which ones you guys love! I wish I had a scratch & sniff feature here on the blog so you could test them out. :) xx- Elsie


Note: Be sure to use only natural ingredients without dyes or artificial scents.
