Back to School Scenting for Your Dorm

Back to School Scenting for Your Dorm

It’s that time of year – the time when many of us put away swimsuits and summer jobs and make the trek to the college dormitory, whether for the first time or the fourth. While you’re making packing lists and plans, there’s something you may not have thought of – an essential oil diffuser. Why does a dorm room need a scent machine? There are several excellent reasons.

A diffuser will make your dorm smell amazing

Dorm rooms are unfortunately subject to all sorts of unpleasant odors. You might end up with a roommate with less-than-perfect personal hygiene, or late-night study sessions could give way to old pizza boxes that sit around a little too long. Your laundry could pile up while you’re busy studying, or your dorm could be located directly next to the bathroom. Whatever the origin of the smell you’d like to get rid of, an aromatherapy diffuser is a great solution. With a wide range of delightful scents to choose from, you can give your dorm a much more pleasing aroma.

A diffuser can reduce stress and help you sleep…

Different scents have different effects. If you choose the right ones, you’ll notice that you feel calmer and sleep better, even amidst the stress of classes. Great scents that have calming effects include lavender, chamomile, cedarwood, grapefruit, rose, frankincense, and tea tree. Filling your dorm with these relaxing scents can make a tiny space feel like a zen oasis and help you get the sleep you need to function at your best throughout the day.

…or it can help you stay alert for an important study session

Scent your dorm with one of the essential oil and aroma blends known to be stimulating in nature, and you could help yourself stay awake longer and focus better on your studies. If you’re having one of those days when time seems to drag, and you can’t focus on your schoolwork, diffusing the right blend can ease your mental fatigue. Peppermint, rosemary, sage, basil, and lemon can all boost your energy and help you get through those all-nighters.

Diffusers are safer than scented candles and incense

Scented candles and incense are popular choices for adding aromas to small spaces, but they often aren’t allowed in dorms. Even if they were, they wouldn’t be nearly as safe as a good diffuser. Candles and incense require open flames and fill your dorm with potentially harmful smoke. When you use a diffuser with good-quality essential and aroma oils, you’ll be improving the air quality in your room and benefitting from the therapeutic properties of the oils – as well as avoiding a fire hazard.

Your friends will love it

Your great-smelling dorm will impress anyone who visits. You can make your dorm stand out among the others in a good way when you make it smell amazing all the time. You’ll be in for tons of compliments, and your dorm may become the place people want to hang out.

Simply put, a diffuser is the ideal way to make any dorm room a little more impressive. If you are a student heading back to school, make sure you take one along. If you are the parent of a student going away to college and you’re looking for the perfect gift, an AromaTech diffuser will help your student stay focused, sleep better, manage stress, and become the envy of their friends.
