Problem: Like many adults who are juggling full-time gigs, children, and a robust Netflix lineup, I’m stressed.
Solution: The MONQ Personal Diffuser Pens take chilling the hell out to another level with calming scents.
Ever since my high school days, I’ve been prone to stress. Despite everything I do to help ease my anxiety, it doesn’t take much for my stress levels to peak. I used to smoke cigarettes to tame my stress and keep my brain focused, but since smoking is basically the scarlet letter of vices, it isn't something that I reach for in times of stress anymore.
I found out about MONQ while watching a YouTube video, and an influencer described it as a way to keep calm without picking up a cig. These nicotine-and-tobacco-free pens contain essential oil blends that deliver a relaxing breath with every pull. Similar to the calming properties from diffusing oils into the air or applying onto your body, MONQ allows you to take in those same benefits, but orally.
I know, you’re probably thinking that sounds like some hippy-dippy nonsense. But the brand has a team of scientists, botanists, pharmacologists, aromatherapists, and mechanical engineers behind them to deconstruct plant compounds in order to create these magical blends. Of course, MONQ pens are not meant to be used as a replacement for medication or therapy — but if holistic wellness is appealing to you, this meticulously formulated relaxation aid is great to add to your stress-busting toolkit.
Here’s how the pen works: When you put it to your lips and suck in (as if through a straw), the pulling motion turns on a heating mechanism that warms the essential oil blend inside to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. As you draw the aromatic mist into your mouth and out through your nose, there is a moment of stillness, and you begin to calm the hell down.
MONQ pens are available in various blends, and if you have no idea which blend is right for you, you can find out which one would best suit your personality. The pen that I am loving at the moment is the Active blend — it has a mix of uplifting bitter orange, stimulating black pepper, and calming sage.
These relaxation aids are tiny and portable, and they contain 200 puffs' worth of essential oils. Available in multi-blend packs, you can keep one in your tote, gym bag, car, or nightstand to help you stave off stress whenever it creeps up.
