Seasonal Simmers: Fall Inspiration
Simmers are a special mixture of herbs and spices, which are combined
into a blend or potion, created to bring the power of aromatherapy
and intention into your life. They are also designed to capture the
attention of those around you and creates a wonderful tea. You will also find
some of my favorite Fall essential oil diffusions.
Based on folk remedies, grandma's recipes and the ingredients
provided by nature, these simmers are recipes used to make your
kitchen smell delightful. They can be used along with a "special
intention" and later, can even be enjoyed as tea!
Used for: scenting the kitchen/any room with aromatherapy, inviting
Fall, honoring Halloween, as a love potion.
-Blend 2-4 cups of apple cider or apple juice with:
-1 apple cut into small pieces
-1 pinch of nutmeg
-1 cinnamon stick
Slowly simmer on the stove. Allow the smell to permeate the room.
Walk In The Woods
This is a nice recipe for an essential oil diffuser.
Add water to the diffuser and light the candle underneath
- Add 3 drops of Vetiver
- Add 2 drops of Patchuoli
- Add 2 drops of Cedarwood
A Spicy Fall Blend
-Add 10 drops of Lavender
- 5 drops of ginger
- 2 quarts of water.
Set your stove on extremely low to allow the steam to diffuse into the air. You
can also do the same with a tea pot without a whistle. Remember to always watch
the stove and turn it off when no adults are present.
Fall Citrus Delight:
- Add 10 drops of Bergamot
- 4 drops of Clove
- 3 drops of Cinnamon
- add to water in a diffuser.
Light a tea light under the oil to gently diffuse the scent into any room.
With each simmer you can:
-take advantage of their aromatic properties.
-say a positive affirmation, invoking words, a special prayer or give
-use them at the start of each season to give honor to yourself and
your intentions for that season.
-as it cools, share, drink, these simmers as a tea.
-the health properties of these ingredients are appropriate for each
season, relate to the internal organs and are associated by taste,
temperature and color.
