Breathe Nature with Newly Reformulated MONQ Forest Blend

Breathe Nature with Newly Reformulated MONQ Forest Blend

MONQ loves bringing you essential oil blends that help you feel better, do better, be better.TM So, when you asked for an essential oil blend that was more reminiscent of the scents of forest air, MONQ got to work. Now, experience the cleansing air of the forest with our newly formulated Forest blend.

The Forest blend family provides many of the same aromatic and therapeutic experiences as Shinrin-Yoku or forest bathing, including replenishing beneficial terpenes.

Forest contains many types of fir, pine, and the perfect amount of frankincense. One of our favorite essential oils—Recycled Christmas Tree—is at the base of this blend and includes several types of firs. Both pine and fir have restorative, rejuvenating, and purifying properties. They are perfect for cleansing the air in your spaces and boosting the respiratory system. Frankincense is an essential oil with centering and balancing properties, making it a perfect complement to the pines and firs in Forest.

Forest Primary Ingredients

Fir Essential Oil

There are numerous active compounds in fir essential oil that give it special health benefits. These include sabinene, alpha-pinene, carene, and limonene. Together, these compounds contribute to the essential oils’ anti-inflammatory, stress-relieving, and antimicrobial properties.

Additionally, for many, breathing in the scent of fir evokes happy memories of the holiday seasons or serene days spent hiking through the wood—while providing many of the benefits that a hike through the woods brings.

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense is one of the most widely used essential oils and is especially popular to diffuse during yoga and meditation sessions. In ancient rituals, it was used as incense to promote health and banish negative energy. Frankincense essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, antiseptic, and diuretic properties.

In Forest, frankincense helps reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. When inhaled, it has been shown to reduce heart rate, maintain healthy blood pressure, and reduce stress.

Frankincense is also used as an immunostimulant, boosting the function of the immune system and helping the body fight off bacteria and viruses.

Forest blend St. Patrick's DayPine Essential Oil

The scent of pine is often considered refreshing and uplifting; not surprisingly, this essential oil does so much more than lift the spirits. From boosting immune system function to maintaining healthy respiratory function, pine essential oil has been shown to provide a wide range of health benefits.

Pine essential oil is steam distilled from pine needles. The resulting oil is clear and has fresh, earthy, and balsamic notes. It is often used to reduce muscle pain, alleviate stress, and disinfect surfaces.

This essential oil also has a high concentration of A-pinene, which is known for its ability to clear the sinuses.
