Which MONQ Blend is the Right Gift for Each of Your Friends?


With the holiday season around the corner, it’s time to put on your thinking caps to come up with special gifts for the ones who mean the most to you. Instead of buying the usual – perfumes, clothing, purses and chocolates, why not gift them something out of the box like MONQ Essential Oil diffusers

I’ve always found that the best gifts are the things I secretly want, but may not buy for myself. With MONQ, you have the benefit of being unique, thoughtful, and fun. With a variety of custom blends to choose from, you’ll also be able to add a dash of personalization to your gift. 

These gifts are a perfect thought for anyone in your life, from the stressed-out over-planner to someone looking to add a little spring to their step throughout the winter. Best of all, these perfectly portable personal diffusers use only natural organic essential oils that are good for you. I know I tend to overdo it by eating and drinking during the holidays and could use a kick start on getting my health back in order. 

MONQ has 7 main blends, each with three main essential oils mixed with other essential oils into an organic, coconut-based glycerin base. Each blend gives different effects when used, meaning you can choose a blend to complement your friends’ unique natures! Read on to decide on the best blend for each friend.

  1. Happy – For the Stressed and the Down
    If one of your friends is going through a stressful period in life like the loss of someone special or holiday blues or is predisposed to tension, negativity, and anger, the Happy diffuser may be just what’s needed to add some merriment to their lives. It’s the vanilla and fennel that create a sense of positivity and uplifting vibes so that their mood quickly lifts after using the blend. While the vanilla works at dissolving any anger they feel, the mandarin extracts help induce a feeling of positivity.
  2. Vibrant – For the Night Owl
    The Vibrant diffuser might be the perfect gift for your friend who’s a night owl by nature and finds it difficult getting an early start in the mornings. If you know someone who doesn’t take calls before 10 am, needs 3 cups of coffee to get their day started, or just generally is sluggish in the morning, this one is for them. With just a few quick breaths of Vibrant, they will notice a drastic increase in concentration and focus levels, consequently leading to positivity and productivity. The main ingredients in the blend are lemon, spearmint, and ginger. It’s no wonder the blend is vibrant enough to keep your recipient full of energy!
    This one is also good for anyone suffering from frequent bouts of indigestion due to the fact that its main ingredient can improve and regulate digestion and even control nausea.
  3. Sleepy – For the Sleep-Deprived
    While some people are lucky enough to get a good night’s sleep, many people, maybe one of your friends too, have trouble falling asleep at night. This is where the Sleepy diffuser proves helpful because its valerian, lemongrass, and lavender oils help calm the mind to help a person gently relax into a natural slumber. These oils and the other oils in the blend work as a natural relaxant to help make all their worries disappear so that they can stop their mind from racing and finally fall asleep. All they have to do is take a few breaths while getting ready for bed, and they will slowly but surely feel their body want to sleep!
  4. Active – For Improved Energy
    The MONQ Active diffuser is the perfect gift for your fitness enthusiast friend. As the name suggests, the blend creates a sense of focused energy in the body before yoga, swimming, or a gym session. This, in turn, helps them maximize the effects of their workout.
    It’s all due to the orange, sage and black pepper essential oils, which with the other oils boost mental clarity while improving energy levels. With these heightened energy levels, they not only work out well but may also notice an improvement in their work productivity throughout the day without any feelings of tiredness or lethargy.
    Note that this doesn’t just have to be for gym enthusiasts, it’s a great blend for those who are constantly on the go and have a million-item-long to-do list. Does anyone come to mind?
  5. Healthy – For Improved Immunity
    This blend has turmeric, cinnamon leaf, and marjoram as the main ingredients, which collectively improve a person’s overall health and wellness levels.
    Not only is the blend suitable to use for improved immunity, but it also helps promote a sense of positivity and wellbeing to the body after an injury, sickness, any physical discomfort and even after exercising. In other words, the whole immune system gets a boost, allowing you to remain healthy and active not only during winter but the whole year long.
    The Healthy diffuser could be the perfect gift for the friend who just seems to keep coming down with the cold or flu, instead of a package of tissues and vapor rub. 
  6. Zen – For Calm and Relaxation
    MONQ’s Zen diffuser is a mix created specifically for your friend who’s always overworked and running around with a million things to do. It helps create a feeling of calm and relaxation by reducing the stress he or she has in their lives so that they finally have time to stop and smell the roses (or in this case, the ylang-ylang). The frankincense, orange, and ylang-ylang essential oils work with other oils to declutter the mind and help center a person. It’s perfect for use while meditating, or if they just need a little zen time out during their busy day. Since MONQ is portable, this gift is easy to carry into office, school, or along their commute. Whenever they feel ‘choked’ with work, all it takes is a quick breath of Zen for a sense of calm, relaxation, and clarity.
  7. Sexy – For Confidence and Charisma
    Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your social life has to be. The sexy diffuser is a fun, spicy blend that will bring smiles all around. If you know someone who needs just a little boost of confidence to break off their shell and dazzle those around them, Sexy is the way to go.

    The main ingredients of jasmine, patchouli, and lime along with other oils like ylang-ylang and vanilla help get rid of any stress in their lives that obstructs their ability to connect with others. The oils also help them feel uplifted so that they can still enjoy a social evening after a long day. Say bye-bye to the tired excuse of being tired after work, when they want a little pep in their step, this is the blend to turn to.

Blends for Nature Lovers
In addition to these blends, there are 3 Feel Nature® blends, which nature lovers and outdoorsy people will enjoy. This line of blends creates a feeling of freedom and takes the user back to nature.

The Mountain diffuser induces a feeling of strength and awe, the very same vibes that come from mountains. It helps to feel relaxed and unwind at the end of a long day.

The Ocean diffuser simulates a connection with water through nostalgia therapy Nature lovers will love the feeling of standing on the beach, watching the sunset, and breathing cool ocean air. This is the perfect blend to calm down and refocus.

The third nature blend is Forest, which was created to replicate the feeling of walking down a path in the woods. It’s soothing and refreshing; it creates a feeling of walking through the autumn mist, getting close to nature and leaving all the stress and tensions of life behind.

With so many MONQ® blends to choose from, there’s sure to be something to suit each of your friends, making this a memorable and unique gift this holiday season!

Just don’t forget to treat yourself to a little present too. I mean, it is the season of giving after all.
