Pleasant smells have a way of uplifting your mood. Coming home after a long day’s work, the last thing you want is a strange and sweaty odor coming from trash bins, pets, or smelly socks. They only add to your fatigue and negatively affect your mental health.
More often than not, you might put up air fresheners or some other artificial scent to make your house smell good. But these only alter the smell of your house, not cleanse it of any indoor pollutants. Your house may smell good, but will still be charged with plenty of disease-inducing pollutants. But fret not! There are some incredibly easy, quick and cost-effective ways to rid your household of odd smells and pollutants. Try some of these natural and very economical means to make your house smell heavenly.
Do you want to capture a bit of spring in a bottle? Just put together some water, vodka, and lilac oil to create a homemade lilac spray. You will always have a breath of fresh air in your humble abode.

Coffee beans to the rescue once again! Drink it in the morning to beat drowsiness and smell it in the evening to fight fatigue. All you need is a bowl, coffee beans, and a tea light to give your home a refreshing smell.
3. Bubbly Citrus and Spice Scent
Heat up some water, throw in lemons, orange peels, almond or vanilla extract, cinnamon (tablespoon), clover and other spices into it. Voila! You not only have an aroma that rejuvenates your home atmosphere, but also rids it of any dryness by adding some moisture to it.

Spraying some cinnamon on pine cones will make your house smell Christmas-y all year around. But be mindful that pine cones take a few months to give out the cinnamon smell. So, get started early!
