The Peace+: Breathe enhanced serenity with MONQ’s newest blend. A MONQ +cbd product, Peace+ launches with a new collection of CBD-infused blends.
This blend builds upon the original, handcrafted Peace blend and adds CBD to clear the cobwebs of the mind, quieting worries and inspiring feelings of peace, creativity, and contentment. Breathe peace to experience enhanced serenity and a deeper sense of comfort.
Peace+ is available in the original personal aromatherapy diffuser—a portable and disposable device filled with 200+ breaths of a CBD-infused essential oil blend.
The Peace+ blend features four main ingredients: American-grown CBD, rosemary, frankincense, and mandarin. The terpene-rich essential oils work to potentiate and optimize the CBD to create an entourage effect, leading to an enhanced aromatherapeutic experience. Anyone can add CBD. Only MONQ knows how to handcraft synergy to help you feel the way you want. Highlighted below are the primary ingredients in Peace+ and the benefits they provide.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp, a member of the cannabis family and cousin to the marijuana plant. Unlike its cousin, hemp does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound that produces an intoxicating effect. So, CBD elevates your experience, creating greater therapeutic benefits without a high.
CBD acts on the endocannabinoid system, which has essential functions in most parts of the body, including the central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, endocrine system, immune system, and all major organs. In other words, CBD has the potential to address holistic health and affect overall wellness, including mental health.1

In Peace+, CBD elevates the calming effects of the essential oil blend—helping users relax more deeply into a sense of peace and serenity, and opening the mind to new pursuits.
Because CBD is often in an isolate, or single-molecule, form, it often lacks the terpenes inherit in cannabis and marijuana plants. However, by infusing terpene-rich aromatherapy with CBD, MONQ is potentiating the CBD while elevating the aromatherapy to create an entourage effect. This results in enhanced therapeutic benefits of both the CBD and the aromatherapy and facilitates synergy and healing.2
Mandarin Essential Oil
Mandarin essential oil is a unique citrus oil. While many citrus oils boost mood and increase energy, mandarin is actually used for its sedative properties. It contains high concentrations of the terpene limonene (approximately 65–75%), which significantly contributes to its relaxing properties.
This fresh, sweet citrus oil is often used for its antiseptic, antispasmodic, digestive, sedative, and depurative properties. In the Peace+ blend, mandarin essential oil provides a calming effect, alleviating feelings of stress and anxiety. Additionally, it’s wonderful for reducing nervous tension and improving sleep quality.3
Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary has a long history of both culinary and medicinal use. Two of its main chemical constituents are 1,8 Cineole and a-Pinene, both of which are known for their healing and restorative properties.
Although it has a wide range of uses, rosemary essential oil plays a few important roles in the Peace+ blend. Primarily, rosemary essential oil can help alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety. It has a soothing effect on the nervous system and can create feelings of peace. It also has strong analgesic properties, which can help relieve the pain of headaches. Rosemary’s antiseptic properties help fight respiratory infections and provide a general immune boost.
In a 2007 study, researchers found that simply inhaling a combination of rosemary and lavender essential oils for five minutes a day significantly reduced cortisol levels. By decreasing levels of the stress hormone, inhaling these relaxing oils can help protect the body from oxidative stress.4 This provides almost immediate relief from symptoms of stress and can also reduce stress levels in the future.
Frankincense is one of the most widely used essential oils during yoga and meditation sessions. In ancient rituals, individuals used it incense to promote health and banish negative energy. Frankincense essential oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, astringent, antiseptic, and diuretic properties.
In Peace+, frankincense helps reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. When inhaled, it has been shown to reduce heart rate, maintain healthy blood pressure, and calm the nervous system.
Frankincense is also used as an immunostimulant, boosting the function of the immune system and helping the body fight off bacteria and viruses.
Frankincense’s healing properties don’t end there. This essential oil has also been shown to alleviate aches and pains, support the respiratory system, improve sleep quality, ease digestive issues, and boost cognitive function.
One study in 2009 found that incensole acetate, derived from Boswellia resin, relieves anxiety. It achieves these effects by activating the TRPv3 channels in the brain, which play a role in regulating emotions.5 If you feel as though you need some emotional stability, frankincense can help get you there.
Peace+ has all the amazing healing properties of MONQ’s original Peace blend enhanced with the therapeutic benefits of CBD. Breathe in Peace+ and breathe in deep serenity.
Peace+ is one of several products featured in the MONQ +cbd collection of CBD-infused aromatherapy products. Other products launching in the MONQ + line include Zen+ original diffuser, and Roll-On blends FOCUS+, Relieve+, and Sleepy+.
