Essential Oils are used in my house for practically everything. That and coconut oil.
LOL. But for reals. When I found out about MONQ personal EO diffusers I had to try them.
Unlike topical oils or household diffusers, MONQ directly inserts aromatherapy into your olfactory system.The olfactory system, or sense of smell, is the part of the sensory system used for smelling. By inhaling, you get the stronger effects of EO’s much like you would breathing in directly over a diffuser or in the steamed shower. When it goes into your mouth and is exhaled through your nose, your olfactory system is swirling around the aromas and the effects are enhanced. So my big thing was…is this like vaping? No, it is nothing like what we know as vaping with all the chemicals, additives, synthetic glycerins, nicotine and burning. MONQ uses pure, organic ingredients. MONQ creates a mist of the diluted EO’s and organic, non gmo vegetable glycerin as its delivery system. It is not only safe, but it is a wonderful way to get the enhanced effects of EO’s. After my research, I tried it out and I am kind of obsessed. They are awesome. You guys have to try them!

The advantage of smelling the oils is that the molecules stimulate the olfactory center of the brain, and this is right next to the limbic center, the part which controls the emotions. I picture these two parts of the brain like neighbors talking over a fence and exchanging gossip–they are very connected.
This connection between the olfactory center and the limbic center explains why the scent of fresh baked bread immediately makes us remember grandma or why a certain perfume will recall a particular starry night on the Mediterranean coast. Smells and emotions go hand in hand.
This same connection also opens the door to immediate emotional support and stress relief. The healing molecules go directly where relief is most important.
It is important to note that essential oils do not influence just the limbic center of the brain. In fact, essential oils also help balance the hypothalamus, the hormone center of the brain. They enter the blood stream and support whatever body systems are out of balance. They go where needed by the body, reducing the damage caused by chronic stress.
