MONQ started with a vision—to share personal Aromatherapy Anywhere®.
The purpose of MONQ is not to fill your lungs with aromatics, but to have an enjoyable aromatherapy experience with high quality essential oil blends. When we say that MONQ releases Therapeutic Air®, we refer to Merriam-Webster’s first definition of Therapeutic: “to produce good effects on your body or mind.”
Exhale Through the Nose
When you exhale through your nose as opposed to your mouth, molecules pass the olfactory nerve endings in your upper nasal passageway. This action is the first step to noticeable therapeutic effects.
While the aromatherapy effect from the olfactory nerves frequently starts immediately, it usually does not peak for at least a few minutes. We recommend that you take a gentle breath or two and then put your MONQ down for a while, as opposed to breathing continuously. In fact, we encourage a very gentle initial breath to see how the blend affects you.
Breathe Organic Plants
For the most effective experience, use gentle breaths:
You Choose How Long it Lasts
MONQ’s flavors are robust, so most users take fewer, softer breaths than they might have initially anticipated (about 2-3 breaths every few hours).
Only one or two essential oils are used in most aromatherapy blends. MONQ is different because we use more complex mixtures, which leads to a synergistic or “entourage effect,” that allows for aromatherapy through a relatively dilute base of essential oils.
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.
If the MONQ is too strong in aroma, a user can soften each breath by placing a finger between their mouth and the device. These users also find MONQ to last much longer.
Obviously, the more frequently you use MONQ the sooner it will wear out. It is possible to use up your device in a single day, with far fewer than 100 strong breaths, but this is not our recommendation.
