Simmer Pot Recipes

I’ve mentioned on the podcast that I really have a deep love for simmer pots to cleanse, protect and in general add aromatherapy to the home. My Sunday afternoons always feel so empty when i don’t set a pot on the stove after lunch. I’ve mentioned a few scent combos on the podcast, but wanted to share some of my favorite blends. All of these have great magick associations, but I will leave those interpretations to you so you can fit these into your own kitchen witchery.
