Forest Bathing & Its Role in Boosting Immunity Against Viruses

Forest Bathing and Boosting Immunity Against Viruses

If you’ve followed MONQ, you know we’re huge believers in the healing power of terpenes—the aromatic compounds emitted by plants and trees and also the building blocks of essential oils. Now, as a pandemic rages across the globe, medical professionals and scientists have dug deeper into how to lead healthier lives and ways that we can boost immunity. 

It turns out, a series of studies conducted by Stanford University School of Medicine and several Japapense medical schools and institutions have shown preliminary evidence of the effects of forest bathing on building immunity against viruses, including the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. 

At MONQ, we know forest bathing is the best way to breathe in healthy terpenes. But, when you can’t get out—when your state parks and forests are closed and you’re required to social distance—MONQ can provide you with terpenes delivered directly to your door. Our personal aromatherapy diffusers and Therapeutic Fragrance® bottled blends are designed with specific terpene profiles in mind to help you feel the way you want® and breathe in all the benefits of the forest at home.
