When I think of fall, I can smell it. Warm baking, spices, the crisp air and seasons changing. Personally I love living where we have seasons. Something about the change is revitalizing. I’m also a huge sucker for the holidays. So to say I enjoy the fall might be an understatement. I think what I like the most though is gathering with friends and family.
The trees were blazing with autumn; red and gold and auburn leaves littered the ground like a many-hued carpet that crackled and rustled as they hiked along.— Ben Bova, Return to Mars, 1999
Creating an environment that smells good, is safe and feels cozy is our favorite thing to do with Simmer and Co products. Add Be Cozy simmer mix to your stove top, melt some Be Tranquil wax melts in your bathroom, place a Be Classy simmer medley in your linen drawer and spray some Be Refreshed simmer mist on your couch- all these natural aromas will make your home smell amazing!
Another fun way to enjoy the holidays is with mulled spice and we’re sharing our favorite recipe and ways to use it below!
There are three ways you can enjoy this mulling spice- see below:
