When I discovered the power of an essential oil diffuser, my life was changed for the better. After buying a diffuser and establishing an essential oil collection, I refuse to be in my dorm room without putting a few drops of oil into this revolutionary machine. 

1. Essential oil diffusers make dorm life a lot less gross.

Does your roommate have bad hygiene? Is your dorm directly next to the bathroom? Don't fret, you can transform the musky smell of your college dorm room into that of a world-class spa. 

2. It can help you relax and get to sleep.

If you don't know much about essential oils, one thing I should tell you right off the bat is that they all have different effects when used. 

Every night before I go to sleep, I put lavender and/or chamomile essential oil into my diffuser. My box-sized dorm room now feels like a zen oasis every time I go to sleep.

3. Diffusers can also set the mood for an energized study session. 

Putting 3 drops of concentrated eucalyptus and/or peppermint oil into the essential oil diffuser is a fabulous way to keep yourself focused.

There are a ton of essential oil brands out on the market, but I can assure you that doTERRA oils are by far the purest, best smelling ones. DoTERRA oils are so pure that you can even ingest them.

However you don't want to ingest essential oils without explicit medical instructions, as they're so concentrated it can be dangerous. 

4. Your RA will have no reason to yell at you.

I know the struggle is real when you're not allowed to use your favorite candles and incense. Thankfully, you won't set off your smoke alarm with your essential oil diffuser, and you'll avoid both getting written up and potentially setting your room on fire. 

5. You'll impress everyone who comes in your dorm.

Trust me, your incredible-smelling dorm will be a hit with all everyone who comes by. Get ready for a ton of compliments and for all of your friends to think you're a zen goddess. 

The good news is that essential oil diffusers are inexpensive and easy to find. Once you realize how much better your life is with one of these magical machines, you will never turn back.
