Remember right before Christmas when you were baking all those luscious cookies and candy? Remember how warm and inviting your house smelled? The aroma of cinnamon and cloves that wafted up from the oven as your pumpkin pie or snicker-doodles baked inside? I love that smell. There is something so cozy about a house that smells like something delicious has just come out of the oven. Of course, if I want to fit in my pants, the holiday baking has to come to an end eventually! Never fear though....your house can still smell good! With these heavenly orange and ginger simmering spices, your house can continue to smell divine even though you are making salads instead of cookies!
These simmering spices use no essential oils and are added to a pot of simmering water on the stove. This also helps keep moisture in the air which is good for dry skin during the harsh winter months. Just make sure you keep your eye on the pan of water. You don't want all the water to evaporate! If you prefer to not simmer them on the stove, it can be placed in a small bowl on the counter with a few drops of essential oils added on top. These simmering spices would also make a lovely and inexpensive gift. I'm sure we are all pinching a few pennies right now to make up for our rash holiday spending!
