Warm Smells for Chilly Days

When the air begins to cool, it can be of great comfort to come in to warm and soothing aroma's.  In our Centre we are not able to light candles, so a homemade potpourri is often set to simmer on the electric hot plate.

In a medium, heavy pot, place 3 cups of water and a combo of the following:
  • Apple peel and cinnamon stick
  • Orange peel and cloves
  • Lemon peel and a nub of fresh ginger
  • Lime peel and coconut extract
You can also experiment and create your own scents! 

(*Notes: keep an eye on the water level and refill as it evaporates, be respectful of children/staff that are scent-sensitive or have allergies, never leave the hot plate on when you leave the room and keep the hot plate at a safe distance from curious hands & fingers)

Until You Read Again.....
