Our temps here have been dropping down to freezing the last few nights.
I love walking in these sparkly frost covered mornings, breathing the cold air while my body is warmed with layers of cozy clothes and movement.
What I don’t love is how dry my skin gets and how running the heater makes this issue even worse.
Simmer Pots to the Rescue!
These kitchen potions are perfect home magic for this time of year. They smell amazing and infuse magic into every corner of your residence.
A Simmer Pot is a Pot of Water that you bring to a boil then
turn down to a gentle simmer on your stove or create in your crockpot
Adding herbs, plants and fruits to the water creates a scented steam
that fills your house with a wondrous scent and when done with
intention,invites in the energy you desire into your home space.
Step One: Create an Intention
What is the purpose of your Simmer Pot?
Step Two: Choose correlating plants and herbs
Step Three: Add Water to your pot
Step Four: Add your herbs and plants
Be sure to speak your intention to the plants as you add them or state it clearly once the herbs are in the water
Step Five: bring to boil then turn down to a low simmer
(if using a slow cooker you can just turn it on)
Step Six: check the water every 30- 60 minutes (depending on the size of your pot and amount of water)
and add more water as needed.
You can use these same herbs for a full day and compost or bury them when the spell is complete.
