Did you know? One session with a water-based diffuser consumes the equivalent amount of essential oil contained in an entire MONQ original diffuser. And we, at MONQ, are not only proud of this achievement but also eager to let you in on the secret behind it.
Understanding the Journey of Essential Oils: To appreciate the significance of efficient essential oil use, let’s dive into the journey of these oils. Derived from various parts of plants such as fruits, seeds, stems, flowers, and leaves, these oils are procured either via distillation or extraction. The quantity of essential oil obtained can vary based on plant type, growth conditions, and other factors. For instance, although caraway seeds have a generous 9% essential oil content, producing just 90 mL (3 ounces) of the oil still requires about 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of seeds.
In stark contrast, roses, with a mere 0.03% essential oil content, yield only 0.3 mL from 1 kg of petals. This translates to a staggering 100 kg (220 lbs) of roses - more than 1,000,000 petals - just for 30 mL (1 oz) of essential oil!
The Essence of Conservation: With such insights, it becomes evident why judicious use of essential oils is paramount. MONQ champions this cause through our unique aromatherapy systems. We're committed to ensuring that every drop counts.
Each of our innovative diffusers houses 1 mL of an essential oil blend, consisting of 20% pure essential oils and 80% organic vegetable glycerin base. This amounts to merely 0.2 mL, or roughly 4 drops of essential oil per diffuser! And guess what? One diffuser has the endurance to last an entire month when used as suggested.
Contrastingly, most traditional diffusers demand 1 to 5 drops of essential oil for a fleeting 15-20 minute session. Doing the math, over a month with daily use, these diffusers might require 30 times the oil in a single MONQ diffuser!
Yet, MONQ’s minimalist approach doesn’t compromise on impact. Our aromatherapy method offers direct stimulation to the olfactory bulb, ensuring users savor every scent without the risk of sensory adaptation. In essence, MONQ diffusers are the embodiment of convenience and ecological responsibility, designed to enhance every wellness journey.
