A pleasant aroma in an area not only adds a feel-good factor in the whole environment, but it also adds a dash of luxury to it. We all have experienced the mild fragrance in different hotels and other such places, and we have totally loved it all the time. When we enjoy that experience so much, then why not have it at home as well? So, if you are game for it, have a look at the different types of aroma oils that are best for different corners of your home.
1. House entrance
As they say, “first impression is the last impression”, your home’s entryway is the place which gives your guests an idea of what to expect inside. Hence, it should smell refreshing and welcoming. You can choose from cinnamon, pine, orange and vanilla essential oils for this part of your home. The aroma of these oils is quite warm and will give a welcoming feel to your guests.
2. Living room
This area of your home needs a pleasantly energising aroma, so as to spike up conversations among everyone sitting in this area. You can use spicy essential oils like clove, ginger, peppermint or thyme in your living room. And if you want to go for some soothing mood elevators, then oils like rosemary, sandalwood, cedarwood are good options.
As this a pretty hot area of your home, you need to use oils that give you a cool and refreshing feeling. The best options for you would be either peppermint or spearmint oil. In case you have an open kitchen and your dining area is also attached to it, then you might go for a mild and sweet aroma to have a restaurant-like feel. For that, rose oil will be the best pick.
To ensure that you get a good night’s sleep, your bedroom must have a calming and soothing aroma. Some of the best sleep-inducing essential oil for you bedroom are lavender, chamomile, sandalwood, cedarwood and vetiver. To make your bed linen always smell fresh, put a few drops (3-4) in a paper towel and keep it inside the folded bedsheet as soon as it comes from laundry. Remove this paper towel whenever you take out your bedsheet for use.
It’s better to keep those oils in your bathroom that not only have a relaxing aroma, but also possess antifungal and antibacterial properties. For areas like shower curtain, toilet, sinks, bathtub and shower heads, oils like lemongrass, basil, tea tree and cinnamon are the best bets. Since bathroom stays wet most of the times, moisture might lead to growth of fungus in it. For that, you can mix around 350 ml water with around 100 ml white vinegar and 10 drops each of lemongrass, tea tree, basil and cinnamon oil. This will keep your bathroom fresh and germ-free.
Well, what are you waiting for? Now that you know what are the right fragrances that you need for your house, just go and get them all, and make your home a pleasantly smelling place.
