TikTok crafter Carolina Mccauley shared a simple recipe for a holiday simmer pot. A simmer pot is a great alternative to scented candles, which have petroleum-based paraffin and artificial fragrances. All you need is some fruit, herbs and spices to fill your home with a nice, comforting aroma. 

“Make your home smell like Christmas,” Mccauley wrote in the caption. 

You’ll need:

  • Citrus fruit, sliced

  • Dried cranberries

  • Cinnamon sticks

  • Fresh herbs

First, Mccauley added water to a pot. Then she placed in sliced citrus fruit, such as pink grapefruit. 

Next, she tossed in dried cranberries, cinnamon sticks and fresh rosemary. 

Finally, she let the pot simmer on the stove to allow the aroma to fill her home. 

TikTokers appreciated Mccauley’s Christmas simmer pot. 

“I do cloves instead of rosemary. Smells divine,” someone wrote

“You can also do this in a crockpot,” a user suggested

“Love these and this one is so cozy,” another commented
