Simmering Scent that I made.
There are a variety of different items. The only prep work needed is to thinly slice and dry lemon, apple, and orange slices in the dehydrator. Once that is done, it is simply a matter of combining the items in a large bowl and placing them in clear bags with a label and instructions for use.
When I went to purchase some of the items, I was surprised at the cost. Cinnamon sticks and whole cloves are quite expensive. So instead of using the recommended quantities below, I adapted them based on the package size.
Below is the recipe from Dandee Designs for what each individual packet would include. What I used instead for the entire batch that will be divided up is noted in parentheses:
5 cinnamon sticks (1 container - there were about 8 sticks)
1 dried lemon slice (1 whole lemon sliced and dried; and then broken into smaller pieces)
1 dried orange slice (1 whole orange sliced and dried; and then broken into smaller pieces)
1/2 cup whole cloves (1 small container)
1 tbs. nutmeg (1 tablespoon)
1/4 cup whole allspice (4 tablespoons)
1 tbs. bay leaf pieces (1 container)
3 dried apple slices (1 whole apple sliced and dried; and then broken into smaller pieces)
Combine ingredients. Add water to simmer on stove top.
