Our Story, Mission & Vision

MONQ started with a vision—to share personal Aromatherapy Anywhere®.

Wouldn’t it be nice to do something positive for the world, merging new technology, and ancient knowledge? What if it were possible to merge science and style to allow everyone to discover the benefits of ancient aromatherapy?

Therein lies our mission—MONQ blends the ancient and modern—nature with technology—to improve human lives one breath at a time, helping you feel better, do better, be better.

Surgery – it couldn’t be further away from the ephemeral field of aromas. And yet that is exactly what Eric Fishman MD, the founder of MONQ, did for decades. Then, suddenly, it dawned on him he could better serve the world and millions of people at once, by providing a holistic and natural approach to how people get the terpenes they need ~through natural compounds pre-mixed to help them Feel The Way You Want®.

The same molecules that have grown on this earth since ancient times. They were used by generations of our ancestors who didn’t have any of today’s medical technology.

Taking a walk through nature can expose you to thousands of different terpenes. Have you ever taken a walk through the woods and instantly felt a sense of calm wash over you? Have you ever heard of Forest Bathing? Many people turn to nature when the city becomes too overwhelming, and there’s actually a scientific reason behind this. Terpenes and secondary metabolites released by plants are beneficial to both physical and psychological health. Human ancestors grew up among these plants, and humans evolved to thrive under these conditions. With the rise of industrialization and the increasing number of humans who live in cities, individuals are losing touch with these essential terpenes. If you feel overwhelmed with bouts of stress and anxiety you may be experiencing Terpene Deficiency Syndrome known as TDS.

TDS was discovered and named by Dr. Fishman through his intensive study of the effects of forest bathing. When the body is not receiving the necessary terpenes to allow humans to exist in a continual state of homeostasis the body can feel a bit “off”. MONQ provides the terpenes necessary to help offset this feeling by offering hand-crafted blends, using essential oils derived from herbs and spices, which can help alleviate the symptoms of Terpene Deficiency Syndrome.

MONQ offers similar terpenes to those found in Forest bathing ~which has been shown to assist in promoting overall wellness, increasing heart health, boosting mood and energy levels, and reducing discomfort.

In this busy world, many city-dwelling people simply don’t have the time to take a walk through a forest. Maybe work is too demanding, or the closest forest is a few hours drive away. When you can’t go out into nature, the second-best choice is to bring nature to you. MONQ has done just that with our family of products offering Personal Aromatherapy Diffusers on-the-go, either in the original or Rechargeable MONQ-R Flip Case option, or our MONQ Bottled Blends which can be used in the MONQ Anywhere Diffuser which diffuses your favorite blend of MONQ essential oils throughout the home, office or car.

MONQ’s goal is to help you live a better life and we will be soon offering your favorite blends mixed with CBD options too. All MONQ products are designed to enhance your qualia of life, and the products we sell are “Doctor Approved” and backed with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

As you explore our website you will discover what the word Qualia means. Take some time to read our other blog posts and learn about the various MONQ blends and how your personality affects your blend preference. Maybe you’ll even begin to contemplate the meaning of your existence on this planet. We hope that you will soon realize the importance of Qualia in your life. Finally, we hope you will embark on your personal MONQ journey to Improve Your Qualia of Life.®
