This is a romantic Valentine’s Simmer Pot that will fill your home with a spicy aroma and looks beautiful on the stove too!
I am obsessed with smells. And while I love burning candles and using my diffuser, simmer pots are one of my most favorite ways to make your home smell good and feel cozy and fresh too!
What is a simmer pot?
A simmer pot is basically a pot of water filled with herbs, spices, fruits or florals that you heat over the stove and makes like a natural potpourri for your home.
I’m sharing this romantic Valentine’s Simmer Pot and it’s a great way to use those leftover rose petals after love day <3
Romantic Valentine’s Day Simmer Pot
- rose petals
- a few slices of fresh grapefruit
- chopped ginger
Start by adding some rose petals to your simmer pot.
Add the grapefruit slices, chopped ginger, peppercorns and cloves.
Fill with water.
Let simmer on low for several hours. You can add more water as necessary.
A few other things you could add to your simmer pot:
- citrus slices
- fresh rosemary
- fresh cinnamon
- all spice
- vanilla bean or extract
My favorite winter combo:
- fresh cranberries
- orange slices
- cinnamon sticks
My favorite spring/summer/all year long refresh combo:
- lemon slices
You can use any pot but I think this glass one is just beautiful!
It makes a great housewarming or hostess gift too! Click here to see my simmer pot gift idea.

I bet this smells delightful! I should try this since I can no longer have candles burning in our home due to health reasons. Thank you for sharing your inspiration!
