The Single Item That Brought the Whole Hallway to Our Dorm Room

Moving into the Dorm can be an intimidating experience. You may face loneliness, homesickness, or even confusion when navigating your new environment. I certainly did, but I made it through my first year successfully, and so can you—with the help of smell, that is.

Of course, you’re going to pack all the basics first: bedding, clothes, bathroom supplies, books, snacks, personal items, and so on. And rightly so! But as you’re crossing items off of your checklist, don’t underestimate the power of a pleasant scent to purify dorm room odor. Once my roommate and I discovered Zum Aromatherapy Room & Body Mist, we were constantly complemented on our aroma, and it changed our little Freshman lives forever. Remember how I said you could cure loneliness, homesickness, and confusion? Well, here’s how:

  • Loneliness. It can happen to anyone, especially if you’re in a foreign place where you may not know the people next door, or even your own roommate. With a really, really good smell anyhow, people will want to know you.
  • Homesickness. Smell is the closest linked sense we have to memory. If you start using a room spray at home, and then bring it to college with you, you’ll have an immediate and transportable source of comfort.
  • Confusion. Imagine a hundred bodies crammed into a single hallway, all sharing a communal bathing area—now imagine the smell. Topped with long nights of socializing and studying, anyone would need a mental break. Having a good smell to turn to can help provide some clarity in a time of need. Aromatherapy Sprays are commonly made from essential oils and designed to soothe the mind and spirit.
