MONQ + LoveShayda Giveaway Contest

So excited to be collaborating with MONQ for an awesome giveaway! I had the chance to use their personal essential oil diffusers for a few months now, and I am loving them! I keep one in my purse & one on my desk and for a few seconds each day I am able to relax and enjoy the benefits of the personal aromatherapy. I especially love it for when I am trying to find comfort in my yoga or meditation practice.

How does it work? Well, MONQ releases Therapeutic Air… Each MONQ blend is 80% soy-based vegetable glycerin 20% essential oils. MONQ is a modern aromatherapy delivery device in which breathing in creates a gentle suction. This suction activates a small battery which heats up the aromatherapy liquid which is absorbed onto an organic cotton wick. As the aromatherapy liquid heats up, it turns into a mist consisting of water vapor and carbon dioxide, along with the aromatic compounds released by the heating of the essential oils. You take this mist in to your mouth, complete with a wide variety of healthy terpenes and then exhale through your nose. Exhaling through the nose is the first step to the most therapeutic possible effect. When you do this the aromatherapy molecules go past the olfactory nerve endings in the upper nasal passageway. While the effect from the olfactory nerves frequently starts immediately, it usually does not peak for at least a few minutes. Therefore it’s recommend that you not breathe MONQ continuously, but rather take a gentle breath or two and then put it down for a while.

There are no illegal substances in MONQ Therapeutic Air devices. In addition, there is no tobacco, no nicotine and no artificial flavors. There are no addictive chemicals or ingredients in MONQ. You cannot get ‘addicted’ to MONQ.

For each of the 7 MONQ blends, USA-grown organic plants, when available, are extracted and then infused into 100% pure, food-grade soy-based vegetable glycerin, which the FDA recognizes as safe. When non-USA grown plants are required, they are processed in the United States using processes such as CO2 extraction and steam distillation.

To learn how to use MONQ visit this page on their website –> BREATHE.

Processed with VSCO with m4 preset

When used gently, most MONQ users find that a MONQ will last them at least 3 weeks. Everybody breathes differently, and most people get around 200 or more gentle breaths from each device.

    Literally love your blog and love MonQ. I couldn’t be happier when I hear you paired up with them! I had one Sexy MonQ and it was a godsend in my life. I’ve been trying to purchase another MonQ, but being a college kid…you know how money goes.
    Thanks for sharing the love and giving us all this opportunity!
