It doesn’t take much of something that gives off an odor to have an effect.
Living in the country, my environment is full of smells. Some good, like flowers, fresh cut grass and, call me crazy, but, cows!! I know. It’s weird; but, I love the cows and their smell. So cute!
Some smells, though, are repugnant! Like, a take your breath kind of stinks. For instance skunks who get scared by dogs and dogs who get sprayed by said skunks and cars that said skunks hid under when spraying dogs. It was nasty. We tried every home remedy; but nothing worked. It finally died out…I think.
