I usually buy those bags of Christmas pine cones from Walmart & boil them in some water on the stove & it makes my house smell so good. You could also add a little potpourri in with them. Make sure you use an old pot though because it's hard `to get the fragrance out & you definitely don'``t want to use it for cooking.

All I do is add some cinnamon sticks to a pot of boiling water.  If I want to get really fancy I'll dab a little vanilla extract on some of the light bulbs before I turn them on.  That's getting harder and harder to do as the energy efficient bulbs don't get as hot as the old ones.  But we haven't been able to find any to fit our dining room chandelier, so those usually get a a little dab.  Smells yummy!

I just use some cinnamon sticks and sometimes some rosemary.

I also have a diffuser and I will use that with peppermint, lavender, lemongrass or citrus essential oils.
