MONQ Takes Sustainability to a Whole New Level! 


MONQ Takes Sustainability to a Whole New Level! 

One use of a water-based diffuser uses as much essential oil as an entire MONQ original diffuser!

As an ecologically friendly and environmentally responsible company, that is a statement MONQ is proud to make, and we’re excited to share features of the unique innovation that made it possible.

To truly understand how meaningful it is to be able to limit the amount of raw essential oils we use, it is important to fully understand how those oils are derived. Essential oils are derived from various parts of plants—fruits, seeds, stems, flowers, and leaves—either through distillation or extraction. The essential oil yield varies greatly by plant species and other factors, such as the conditions in which the plant is grown, chemotype, and more. That said, regardless of the plant or its growing environment, it takes a considerable amount of raw material to derive a very small amount of essential oil. For example, caraway essential oil is distilled from caraway seeds, which can have a relatively high essential oil content of 9%. Yet, even with a “high yield,” to distill just 90 mL (3 ounces) of essential oil, one would need approximately 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of caraway seeds!

Conversely, rose yields a very small amount of essential oil, with just a 0.03% essential oil content in the flower petal itself. So, from 1 kg of rose petals, only 0.3 mL of essential oil can be distilled. This means to get 30 mL (1 oz) of essential oil, 100 kg (220 lbs) of roses must be harvested—that’s more than 1,000,000 rose petals! 1

With numbers like that, the importance of being a good steward of essential oils is clear. Because of our novel aromatherapy delivery systems—our Original and MONQ R personal diffusers and Blend PODs, MONQ maximizes the impact of every drop of essential oil.

Our novel diffusers contain just 1 mL of an essential oil blend, which is composed of 20% pure essential oils and 80% organic vegetable glycerin base. So for every diffuser, that’s only 0.2 mL or approximately 4 drops of essential oil! Moreover, each diffuser will last approximately one month when used as recommended.

In contrast, most desktop diffusers require 1 to 5 drops of essential oil per diffusion, which may be as short as 15-20 minutes. So, in one month, with just one diffusion per day, traditional aromatherapy enthusiasts will use 30 times the essential oil contained in an entire MONQ diffuser!

Surprisingly, despite this drastic difference in essential oil use, MONQ aromatherapy has a more profound effect on our bodies—the aromatherapy directly stimulates our olfactory bulb and users do not experience sensory adaptation. Thus, MONQ diffusers are the perfectly convenient, ecologically-friendly complement to any wellness journey.
