Pop a few grocery store ingredients into water on the stovetop, and enjoy a fragrant holiday home!
Filling your home with amazing seasonal fragrance is a part of making cozy during the holidays. Yes, you can burn fragrant candles, but even easier and less expensive is to get some stovetop holiday simmer going. Here’s how to make Super Simple Holiday Stovetop Simmer to enjoy all season long!
Super Simple Holiday Stovetop Simmer
I had totally forgotten that my mom used to do this during the holiday season, mostly when we were hosting. But once I tried it myself, we’ve been enjoying an amazingly fragrant, holiday smelling home everyday! Along with the twinkly lights and Christmas music, one can almost forget all the challenges this year has brought!
Grab some simple grocery store ingredients
All you need to do is add a couple grocery store ingredients to a few cups of water in a saucepan:
- orange slices
- whole cloves
- cinnamon sticks
I might try adding some fresh rosemary sprigs next time, too.
Just set the burner on a low simmer. Once the blend gets warm, the amazing fragrance will start wafting throughout your house! Instant festivity!
I leave it on all day, adding water as needed. Obviously, you don’t want it to go dry. And remember to turn it off before you go to bed!

Light some candles; now we’ve got all the cozy holiday feels going!
Hope you’re enjoying the Merry this year! Go start some Super Simple Holiday Stovetop Simmer!
