Recycled Christmas Tree Essential Oil

There are a variety of pine essential oils, but most provide a similar range of powerful health benefits. Pine essential oils are best known for boosting respiratory and immune function, as well as relieving stress. This combination of benefits makes pine essential oil a great addition to the Mistletoe bottled blend—it can boost your immune system during a time of year where individuals are prone to getting sick, relieve the holiday season stress, all while bringing with it the familiar winter scent of pine.

As an added bonus, the pine essential oil in the Mistletoe bottled blend comes from recycled Christmas trees!

Frankincense Essential Oil

Frankincense is one of the scents most closely associated with the holiday season. Traditionally, frankincense essential oil was used for thousands of years in incense. Today, it is best known for relieving symptoms of stress and anxiety and boosting immune system function. 

Sweet Myrrh Essential Oil

Another holiday season classic, sweet myrrh essential oil is also great for boosting respiratory and immune system function, as well as reducing stress. Combined with recycled Christmas tree and frankincense, sweet myrrh completes this immune-boosting and stress-relieving trio just in time for the holiday season.

Nostalgia Therapy

The Mistletoe bottled blend was designed with nostalgia therapy in mind. The link between nostalgia and humans’ sense of smell is powerful. Humans have at least 1,000 receptors for the smell, so individuals can discern a wide variety of scents—even ones you might not be able to pinpoint the identity of.1 

Because of the close proximity of the olfactory bulb to the hippocampus—the brain’s center for long-term memory—, there’s a strong link in the brain between scent and memory.2 This is why certain scents can transport you back to a distinct time in your life.

This connection between scent and memories is something that can be harnessed through aromatherapy and is what the Mistletoe bottled blend is intended to accomplish. The holiday season is a time of family gatherings, great food, cheer, and joy. MONQ hopes to fill your home with the warmth of the holidays, providing some peace amidst the chaos of the season and boosting your holiday spirit. 

Final Thoughts

As you go about your festivities this holiday season or for a breath of the holidays year-round, breathe the Mistletoebottled blend in a desktop diffuser or on an essential oil medallion. Happy holidays!

Founder’s Message: Feel Better, Do Better, Be Better

When we launched MONQ +cbd in May, I mentioned that I never imagined launching a product in the middle of a pandemic, and yet, that’s exactly what MONQ did. Since the debut of the line, we’ve had the privilege of expanding MONQ + not once, but twice. It seems odd to be expanding in a […]
