Whether you work at a desk all day, a construction site or overseas as one of our brave military members, if you suffer from chronic pain, your body will begin to wear out and you will want to relieve your pain. The good news is that there’s a natural way to put some pep back in your step – through essential oils, which have been used for over 5,000 years.

That’s one of the reasons why we make it so easy for you to experience the benefits of aromatherapy.

eucalyptusEucalyptus

Extracted from the bark of the Eucalyptus tree, this warming oil is soothing and can act as a decongestant and anti-inflammatory, making it an excellent choice during allergy season. While its pain-relieving effects offer relief inside and out, the warming sensation from this oil can be so intense that it can easily damage skin if not diluted properly. Fear not, though; within our blends, the proper dilution has already occurred – just open up a MONQ® diffuser and breathe.

  • As an anti-inflammatory
  • Sinus congestion
  • Muscle injuries

The rosemary leaf has been used since ancient times; one of its most prominent advocates were the Romans, who used this herb for religious ceremonies, weddings, food preparation, and even cosmetics.

Potential Uses:

  • As an anti-inflammatory
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain
