With MONQ® you get to enjoy the benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils and clean air wherever you go. That said, there’s one major consideration to make before you start shopping for your MONQ diffuser. There are ten different blends, each with a unique mixture of essential oils. The essential oils used in any particular blend are meant to stimulate a certain range of emotions and enhance specific benefits like mental sharpness, physical energy, or relaxation.
For example, if you buy the Zen diffuser you get ylang-ylang, orange, frankincense and a range of other essential oils. All the three main oils are perfect for relaxing your body and mind, which makes Zen a perfect pick if you often feel overwhelmed by responsibilities, whether at home, work or school.

It contains all the oils that you need to lift your spirits and provide some inner strength to keep going.
Personalities: guardian, inspirer, executive, performer
Best MONQ Blends: Active, Sexy, Mountain
If you have leadership qualities you are constantly creating ideas, inspiring others, and providing direction. You are an outspoken, enthusiastic, and idealistic person who never shies from challenges. The right MONQ blends for you are those that will help you excel in your leadership.
MONQ’s Active diffuser isn’t just for enhancing workout sessions. It also brings a cheerful attitude while heightening mental clarity. You can feel similar effects from the Sexy blend – it will give you confidence and loosen you up so that the best parts of your personality can shine through, no matter how much pressure you’re under. The Mountain blend is also a natural fit for this personality type. The oils in this diffuser will help you feel inspired and strong.
The Kind One
Personalities: nurturer, caregiver, giver
Best MONQ Blends: Happy, Active, Forest
You are naturally tender and warm-hearted. Most people are generally kind but if this is your primary character then it means you always put other people’s needs above your own. That tends to give you a very strong sense of duty and responsibility towards others. Apart from being very social and sociable, you also find it very easy to perceive other people’s feelings.
While that level of kindness is an amazing virtue, it does take a toll on your inner self because you make other people’s (especially your loved ones) challenges and problems your own. You can always use MONQ’s Happy blend to calm your mind, body, and spirit whenever you have to cope with the emotional burden that comes with kindness. But don’t forget to combine it with the Active blend. This one offers physical strength and a positive attitude regardless of how gloomy a situation might seem. You would also be wise to use Forest for a quick, grounding escape into nature when you need some fresh perspective.
The Skillful One
Personalities: mechanic, scientist, visionary, doer
Best MONQ Blends: Zen, Healthy, Sleepy
We all have one or few skills, but if you are exceptionally skillful in sports, mechanics, analysis, and theorization then you are definitely in this group. You are intellectually quick and excel at things that require talent or smarts. You like to create plans to turn theories into actionable projects. That’s why you don’t want your mind to be sluggish – all the plans and projects will stall. Luckily there’s Zen to help you maintain the momentum. It’s perfect to give your mind a quick, stimulating boost, no matter what time of day or night.
The only problem is when your mind is always running is that getting rest can be a bit of a problem. You’re always analyzing and may have trouble turning your brain off when it’s time to sleep. MONQ’s Sleepy blend will help you relax, get sleep and keep stressful thoughts away. You may also notice that your focus on your health falls by the wayside when you start a particularly stimulating project. For times like these, try using the Healthy diffuser to give your immune system a boost.
The Creative Mind
Personalities: artist, thinker
Best MONQ Blends: Happy, Sleepy, Ocean
Creative people are always associated with deep thoughts and a sensitive soul. If you are one of these, you understand how that can lead to very deep emotions. That’s not a bad thing, except that with highly-developed senses and a unique perception of (and appreciation for) beauty, you are likely to take even the smallest things to heart. Ultimately you might experience more, and deeper, the feelings that you want. Many of history’s greatest artists have been associated with stress and mood disorders, for example.
With MONQ’s Happy blend you can easily keep distressful emotions at bay. Its calming effect makes it a great remedy for worry, anger, and negative thoughts. The Sleepy blend will also be a handy addition because you will need it for those sleepless nights when your mind is trying to be creative rather than relax and sleep. If you find yourself needing a boost of creativity, you can use Ocean for an invigorating and refreshing effect that will surely have you feeling inspired in no time!
