The blogger from Perth, WA, simmers the mixture on the stove over low heat, sending a burst of fragrance wafting through the kitchen.

“How sweet is this!” one woman wrote, while a second added, “Beautiful. Definitely try this.’

A third said she swaps rosemary for cloves because they smell “divine.”

It’s not the first time Carolina’s easy tips have been praised on social media.

Earlier this year, her easy laundry guide went viral after she shared a video showing fans how she adds essential oil to wool dryer balls to keep clothes fresher for longer.

After each cycle, Carolina leaves the washer door and detergent dispenser open to allow moisture to escape, which prevents the build-up of dirt and mold.

To remove stubborn stains, Carolina said, “catch them as soon as possible” by soaking the stains in stain remover and a paper towel before tossing the garment in the wash.

Instead of leaving clean laundry lying around in a basket, she folds clothes ‘directly against creasing’.

Carolina’s method has been viewed more than 20,000 times, and many say they’re excited to try her tips.

“Oh, this looks so good, I’ll have to give it a try,” one wrote, while another added, “Essential oils are such a good idea.”

However, some warned that essential oil can seep into clothing and cause stains.

‘It’s important that you let the essential oil soak into the wool before you throw it in. Preferably a few hours, otherwise you’ll get stains on all those clothes. Not good,” someone wrote.
