‘Allow to simmer to fill your home with fragrance,’ Chantel wrote and carefully carried the pot of scented water around her home.
‘Remember to keep topping up with water throughout the day.’
The DIY insight is a suitable budget alternative to purchasing expensive candles or incense sticks.
Other TikTok users were thrilled with the insight, and one woman questioned how the leftovers should be used.
