The Best Christmas Simmer Pot Recipe (and how to make it into a cute gift!)

Hygge is about creating a cozy, warm and inviting atmosphere in your home. What better way to get this scene started than by infusing your home with the pleasant aromas of gorgeous natural ingredients warming over the stove? Let’s give it a go with my tried and true recipe for the holidays!

What you’ll need:

1-2 oranges (you can absolutely just use the peels if you prefer)

A few cinnamon sticks

1/4 cup cranberries

3-4 Star of Anise

1 tsp cloves

1 tsp nutmeg

1 few sprigs of pine (or fir)


Fill a large pot with water and add your simmer pot ingredients. I’d say roughly 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. Check water levels regularly as needed. Enjoy the delicious smell of the holidays throughout your home!

To make this a gift:

Add dry ingredients to a mason jar and tie with a ribbon, include the instructions on a gift tag and voila!

Have you given this a try? It’s such a simple and lovely way to add a cozy touch to the holidays!
