    1. A gorgeous diffuser you can use with some essential oils to bring some tabletop style while you disseminate some funk-killing mist.


    Promising review (for the diffuser): "I bought two of these diffusers. They work really well and are very pretty. We put one in our bedroom to use at night when going to bed with an essential oil that helps us breathe easier. It also doubles as a night light. I added three drops of lemongrass essential oil and placed one of the diffusers on a corner far from the door, in a 20'x20' room. My husband got home and was at least 15' from the door of the room where the diffuser was placed and immediately asked me if I had made lemongrass tea. I couldn't be happier, especially because it was half the price when I got them." —thaisval

    Promising review: "We are caregivers for a daughter who uses a bedside commode. It produces odors that are hard to eliminate. We have one hung in her room and one in the bathroom. Works so good our house no longer smells like an outhouse. Thank you!!!" —Rena

    Price: four for $28.95

    13. A hanging air freshener you could put in your car. Or you could do like me and hang this inside your kitchen cabinet where you keep your garbage can!
