I like to drip a couple of drops of lavender oil on the dust bag in the vacuum cleaner before I vacuum. It leaves a lovely calming fragrance right throughout the house.Because we have a dog, it also means you don't have any doggy smells that vacuuming seems to stir up.

I use lavender oil to remove the sticky residue from labels. I don't like the smell of eucalyptus so one day tried lavender oil and it worked just as well and left the house smelling lovely.
When I got some tar marks on the car from road works, I decided to try lavender oil on that too. Just a little on a cloth and the marks were gone. I then washed it off with soapy water to make sure it didn't hurt the duco. The garage smelt wonderful and a job I dislike became less of a chore.
Glenyth,

What a wonderful idea! I cannot wait to try that! Thanks so much for sharing!

I add a few drops to a quart of vinegar which is my version of "fabric softener"! Towels fresh from washer, into the dryer, next to my bath -
How wonderful! I'm sitting here and the only word that keeps coming to my mind is, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" Thanks for taking the time to share!
