I’m currently obsessed with this orange cinnamon lemon ginger room simmer.  Like I simmer it every day.  It is so cozy and bright, perfect for the seriously frigid temps I’m dealing with here in Utah right now.  15 degrees F felt warm to me last night.  It’s coooooooooold.  I hope you are staying toasty wherever you are.  And if you are, don’t tell me, I will hate you.

So, here’s my newest simmer love:

orange cinnamon lemon ginger simmer

1 orange, sliced thin, or just the peels…I simmer the peels and my kids eat the segments
1 cinnamon stick or 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 lemon ginger tea bag, I use Stash Ginger Lemon Tea
Combine ingredients in a small sauce pan and cover with water.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer.  REMEMBER: check often and continue adding water as needed!

You can use the simmer for 2-3 days if you put it in the fridge over night.  It will look absolutely disgusting but it will still smell good.

Simmers are a great way to add moisture to the air.  Heaters dry out the air inside which leads to dry skin and hair, bloody noses, everything you touch shocking the living daylights out of you, and it dries out our mucous membranes (‘germ trappers’) so we are more prone to sickness.  Plus, simmers smell good.  Real good.
