It once was the case that people felt incomplete living their life as a single person, but now it has finally come to be seen for what it really is. Being single gives people the opportunity to understand themselves and determine what they would want if they committed to a relationship.
However, there are some things that can be missed when living alone. Fortunately, by infusing the right MONQ essential oils into your life, you can make the single life a fully complete and enjoyable experience.
Sleeping Alone – Sleepy
One of the biggest complaints that people have about transitioning into single living is not having someone to share their bed with. This is due to the fact that humans become addicted to having someone to sleep next to. It causes the release of hormones that provides people with a sense of well-being. For those who are newly single, this can lead to insomnia and sleep disruptions.
Even those that have been single for a while often report that they just don’t get the sleep that they had in the past. Fortunately, the only answer to this problem is not just having to find someone to share your bed with. By using essential oils at night, such as Sleepy, which is an infusion of chamomile, kava, and lavender, you’ll find yourself getting to sleep easier each night and getting a longer, more restful night of sleep.
Controlling Your Happiness – Happy
A benefit of being single that is often overlooked is the fact that you alone are in control of your happiness and are no longer left feeling responsible for making anyone else happy. It is a great time to fully understand what it is to be happy in life, and that it is a state of mind instead of an activity, like many assume.

With that said, there are essential oils that you can use to help to increase the frequency with which you experience happiness in your daily life. The Happy blend is actually a mixture of aromas that boost mood. For instance, vanilla has long been known to improve mood, especially because of the nostalgia it induces in many. This combined with fennel and thyme creates the perfect aroma to keep your spirits lifted throughout the day.
Finding New Hobbies – Vibrant, Active
If you feel like you a need a little pep in your step, you may be the perfect candidate for Vibrant. It’s a blend of ginger, lemon, and spearmint, which work together to give you an energy boost throughout the day. If you seem to have a harder time focusing than you had in the past, you definitely should give this blend a try. If you are just looking for a natural way to get going in the morning, this is also a great choice.
Plus, you can use this newfound energy to discover new hobbies or activities that you’ve been passionate about but didn’t have as much time to pursue when you were in a relationship. Out of the many hobbies to choose from, some that might be well worth trying out are activities like running, power-walking, yoga, workout classes, or simply going to the gym.
There are countless benefits to being active. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise can do much more than just control weight. It can improve mood, boost energy, help you get more sleep, and is also a great way to have some fun and be social.1
The Active blend can help with your fitness journey. Active has been formulated with bitter orange, black pepper, and some sage. These essential oils have the ability to get you up and moving, even when you may be feeling down or lonely. This blend also can help you feel focused and give you the extra energy and stamina you need to complete your goal.
Practicing Self-Care – Zen, Relieve, Healthy
Busyness seems to be a way of life. Whether it’s being busy at work, with friends, or doing a million other things, being constantly busy can become a routine. However, it is absolutely essential to take the time to take care of your mind and body by relaxing. Zen can help get you into that relaxed state of mind after a long day, even when it feels like slowing down and taking a break might seem impossible. This blend of frankincense, sweet orange, and ylang-ylang work together to relieve your body of anxiety, lift your spirits, and combat stress. And, as an added bonus, this blend can boost immune system function, keeping you healthy as you pursue all of your other goals and daily activities.
Try pairing Zen with popular self-care activities like taking a bath, meditating, binge-watching Netflix, or simply laying in bed with a good book.
If the stress of the day has left you with more than just stress and you’re feeling a headache or cold coming on, try Healthy or Relieve. The Healthy blend is a potent combination of powerful essential oils such as cinnamon leaf, marjoram, and turmeric. All of these essential oils have properties that will kick-start your immune system. On the other hand, Relieve offers a blend of ginger, helichrysum, and spikenard for relieving your aches and pains.
These powerful blends are also great additions to your self-care routine, especially if you feel like you require a little bit more than just stress relief after a long day.
Going on Adventures – Ocean, Forest, Mountain
One benefit of living your best single life is the ability to travel. Travel is not only fun and enjoyable but it can also have positive effects on your health. According to Forbes magazine, travel can help you feel more satisfied, boost mood, and reduce stress.2
The kind of adventure that works best for you really depends on your personality. Some individuals prefer tropical beach destinations, others hope to bundle-up to go skiing in the mountains, while some individuals prefer the lush and expansive forest environment.
To enhance your experiences in any of these locations, or to keep you satisfied while you’re waiting for an upcoming trip, try Ocean, Forest, or Mountain, all of which are designed to help you experience nature from the comfort of your own home.
Loving Yourself – Sexy, Love
Sexy and single is a popular catchphrase for a reason. Feeling sexy is more than just being confident in the way you look. Being sexy is about how you feel. Often, it can feel like the best kind of love is the affection of another individual, but in order to be the happiest and most successful version of yourself, self-love is equally—if not more—important.
Many of the activities highlighted above can help with nurturing this self-love. To further promote this feeling, try Sexy or Love. Sexy offers a blend of jasmine, lime, and patchouli which is designed to enhance confidence, while Love combines cacao, davana, and siam wood into a blend meant to instill passion. Both of these qualities are especially important for self-love.
Don’t let the single life get you down—it can be amazing too. The key is taking the time to take care of yourself. Find ways to calm your mind and allow yourself to have some fun while you’re at it. And, if you’re looking for some extra help in achieving some of these feelings, try using one of the blends outlined above.
