If you’ve spent any time on our site at all, by now you must be familiar with the concept of essential oils. They’re good for you, they can be used for a number of ailments, and there are a lot of them to choose from. The question is, what happens when you’re not looking to use the oils for any specific purpose, but just want to enjoy the aromas?
There is a lot more to finding the right fragrance of essential oils than just wafting it under your nose. Each essential oil has its own unique properties and their scents have a powerful sway over our emotions. Some are invigorating while others are calming, some are sweet while others are spicy, and some are mellow while others are bright. Getting a sample of all of them can be time-consuming and a little confusing.
The blends in MONQ®’s personal essential oil diffusers are compositions of all natural essential oils, combined with industry experts so that their aromas and benefits compliment one another. The result is that each blend takes on a personality of its own. Very few people enjoy all ten blends, but almost everyone is able to identify one blend that resonates with them more prominently than all the rest.
What you may not realize is that your favorite MONQ® blend may reveal something about your body and your lifestyle. When we crave a certain food, it is often a sign that our body is missing a key nutrient. Similarly, when you feel a hankering for a certain MONQ blend, you may be lacking a specific terpene more than others.
