Mmmh…do you smell that? Cinnamon, oranges and hint of pine? The warm and spicy scent of Christmas is in the air! Although it’s still too early to start baking Christmas biscuits and simmering that mulled wine on the stove, it’s pretty easy to create a cosy and warm atmosphere using only natural ingredients.
Having my home filled with this wonderful scent always brings back fond memories. Christmas is such a fragrant time of the year, but trust me, there is no need to buy expensive candles to make your house smell cosy and warm. Starting a simmer pot is the easiest way to boost the holiday spirit!
What you need:
- 2-3 orange slices
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3-4 star anise
- 1 tsp. whole cloves
- 1 branch of fresh pine
Just throw a couple of orange slices, a cinnamon stick, the star anise, a teaspoon of whole cloves and a small branch of fresh pine into a pot, add water and let it simmer on the stove. Yes, it’s as easy as that.
Of course, you can also use other ingredients like vanilla, cranberries, ginger or apples.
See you soon 🙂
