It’s our party and we’ll cry if we want to— tears of joy!
Today marks MONQ’s fourth birthday and we’re pretty pumped. We’ve loved bringing you our essential oil blends for the past four years. Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning or you’re just now hearing about MONQ, we appreciate you for taking us this far!
MONQ is a Leo, which means we are all about the spotlight. So we’re going talk about us for a little bit, it is our b-day after all, from our MONQ founder and expert, Eric Fishman, MD:
At four years old, most children are becoming self-aware and understanding who they are. For the most part, they can look in a mirror and recognize it is themselves they see. And, so it is with MONQ; at four years old we have found ourselves! But first, I want to tell you about how we got here.
As an Orthopedic Surgeon turned yogi, I acknowledged that a scalpel is not the solution to all issues that humans face. I turned that energy toward finding more homeostatic methods of improving the wellness of all people.
During my time as a surgeon, I could only treat one person, one patient at a time through health and wellness. It seemed virtually impossible to improve upon this number, but I realized that there were tremendous numbers of people who could be assisted with a simple method of breathing in a healing mist.

Understanding that technology can be a double-edged sword, I chose to embark on turning a deadly vice of cigarettes and vapes, into a device that can help people through essential oils and aromatherapy. We know today that nicotine is a poison and that tobacco kills, so realizing that the habit can be converted into a natural healing device, technology definitely became a friend in creating MONQ’s unique personal aromatherapy diffusers.
M.O.N.Q.— Modifying One’s Natural Qualia
So, on July 30th, 2014, the state of Delaware approved the creation of MONQ, LLC, a company determined to improve your Qualia of Life. And, why do we say Qualia rather than Quality? To remind you of the meaning of the acronym MONQ. We consider that when someone uses MONQ, you are Modifying One’s Natural Qualia. Yes, you are modifying the way you interact with the world, the way you experience the five senses, and, importantly, the way your emotions control you, or vice versa.
There is an enormous number of essential oils, and over 30,000 named terpenes, and with some effort, some collaboration, and some friends, blends of different essential oils were made to be delivered via our original device, starting with our original 7 Feel the Way You Want® blends. We have since grown to include 3 Feel Nature® blends, a LOVE diffuser blend, our JIVA apparel line, MONQ apparel, and our Zen, Ocean, and Sleepy bottled oil blends. Our next adventure will be releasing our Apothecary blends to help you Feel Better!
We want to improve your qualia of life. We want to minimize the stress in your life. And, happily, at the age of four, we have many tens of thousands of people who have told us that we have succeeded at doing so. On that note, thank YOU for making MONQ what it is today, and we can’t wait to see what else we can bring you in the next four years!
