For a subtle hint of spring with warm scents, try to mix fresh ingredients. Slice the lemons into small pieces, add a bit of fresh rosemary and a few drops of essential lavender oil in the mix. Cook them on the stove, and the wonderful scent will spread through your house.

Take a bottle that has a sprinkler on the top, a fresh lemon peel and pour some vodka. That is a chemistry free mix that you can add any citrus into, you can even use lime if you feel like it.
4. Tropical potpourri
