Did you know that the aroma of the hallway is your unique fingerprint to your guests? Did you also know that they are often one of the rooms in the home without windows? This area tends to collect all of the aromas in one place…think fish dinner, floral arrangement, and teen shoes all in one place. This room of the home tends to be one of the neglected rooms of the home, let’s change that today.
Citrus essential oils such as lemon, lime, bergamot and grapefruit are great for the hallway! They are uplifting and can give the impression of a clean, fresh home when guests enter in. It’s a great way to get up and moving and even out the door first thing in the morning.
In the afternoon, add in an essential oil blend with geranium, clary sage, or orange in it. This tends to be the time of day when things are calmer making these excellent to reach for. Expecting company, pair with a citrus oil, like lemon, and your guests will receive an aromatic treat as they enter your home and should feel pretty good before sitting down. I don’t know, citrus is just pure happiness in a bottle for me, especially grapefruit.
In the evenings, upon winding down for the day, you can add a little lavender into the diffuser. This is a wonderful essential oil to use before bedtime. Got kids? Get lavender.
Cleaning the Hallway
Hallways bring a lot of traffic in and through them. Things like scuff marks and fingerprints tend to show up quickly.
You can make wiping down painted walls more enjoyable by incorporating essential oils.
The properties of essential oils not only allow them to smell good, but they offer some powerful cleaning benefits to them as well. This is why you see them being added to a lot of cleaning supplies.
Add 1 drop essential oil to 2 tsp. white vinegar and mix. Then add to your bowl or bucket of cleaning water. The smell of the vinegar will slowly evaporate as you wipe down surfaces, leaving you with the delightful aroma of essential oils.
