Ask a Stoner: What’s the Point of Weed-Scented Candles?

Dear Stoner: Who would want a marijuana-scented candle or air freshener? Saw them at the mall and couldn’t think of a reason — and I smoke weed.
Sasha

Dear Sasha: If you can’t think of a reason, then that obviously means no one else can, either, right? Wrong. Time to smoke some weed (or more, since you already do) and expand your mind, Sasha. There’s mischief to be had here.

Live in a college dorm and can’t stand one of your dormmates? Hide a few pot-scented air fresheners in the room and call the R.A. Want to freak your parents out one day? Leave a Kush Candle burning in their bathroom after a family dinner. You could even mess with the cops when they pull you over. If your car is clean and you don’t have any THC in your blood from the day before, it might be fun to watch them search for nothing. Even if they don’t put your car all the way back together, it could still be worth it.

Some people like the smell of weed so much that they'll buy candles and air fresheners that smell like the plant — and some of us just want to play a prank or two.

6 Simmer Pot Recipes to Make Your Home Smell Great

If you love to keep your home smelling fresh but hate overpowering fragrances, might we suggest a simmer pot? It combines natural ingredients with boiling water to bring a subtle but pleasant scent to your home. Perfect for right before guests arrive, it smells like something amazing is brewing without being overpowering. Here are some of our favorite scent recipes to mix up.

Pumpkin Spice Simmering Pot

If you love everything pumpkin spice, make your own fragrance at home. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least two cinnamon sticks, 4 pieces of ginger or candied ginger, and one clove of nutmeg. Lower the heat to simmer the water and ingredients, checking the pot every so often to make sure there is enough water in it.

Apple Cider Simmering Pot

There’s nothing that screams fall more than the sweet scent of apple cider. Here’s how to mix up that amazing smell in your own kitchen. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least two apple peels, one cinnamon stick or more, and three whole cloves or more. Lower the heat to a simmer and check the pot every so often to make sure there’s still enough water.

Gingerbread Simmering Pot

The perfect transitional scent from fall to winter just might be gingerbread. You won’t believe how easy it is to mix up in your own house. The spices are almost spot on to what you’d use in the real thing. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least two cinnamon sticks, four pieces of ginger, one tablespoon of pure almond extract, and one tablespoon whole cloves. Lower the heat to a simmer, and check on the water level every so often.

Mulled Wine Simmering Pot

No wine on hand? No problem. This mixture gives your home the rich aroma of mulled cider without the alcohol. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least one orange rind, one apple peel or more, two cinnamon sticks, at least two whole cloves, and two-star anise. Lower the heat to a simmer and keep an eye on the pot every once in a while to make sure there is enough water.

Pine & Juniper Simmering Pot

Mmmm! Inhale the minty smell of a forest without having to step foot outside. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least five juniper berries, four pine branches, and one lemon peel. Turn the heat down to simmer and watch the water level to make sure it doesn’t get too low.

Bay Wreath Simmering Pot

Earthy and herb-y, this subtle scent will fill your kitchen with a clean fragrance. In a pot, bring water to a boil and add at least five bay leaves, three sprigs of rosemary, and one sliced lemon. Lower the heat at a simmer, checking the pot every so often to make sure there is enough water in it.
With all of the recipes, you can add to and take away, really play with the scents and see what you like best. There are no rules, only suggestions! Enjoy!

Ditch artificial air fresheners in favor of simple simmer pots that you can make with ingredients from your pantry.
