If you love the smell of Christmas around your home, then we want to share our favorite way to bring that scent into your home without candles. Say hello to the Christmas simmer pot!

If you're unfamiliar with a simmer pot, it is a glass heat resistant pot that you use to boil fruits, veggies, spices, and herbs to bring fresh smelling aromas into your space. What I love about a simmer pot is that you can reuse it throughout the holidays and mix up the smell by adding different fruits and spices.
