So I’ve been seeing this company’s ads pop up in my Facebook feed for a little while now. I’m really into essential oils (which is probably why the fb gods keep showing it to me) but immediately I wondered how this could possibly be safe…?! It’s endorsed by one of my favorite EO gurus, Robert Tisserand, which surprised me a lot. He’s huge on safety. Am I missing something? Isn’t it a HUGE no no to inhale oils?? Just to be clear, I’m in no way interested in using this product. I’ve just had it on my mind because I keep seeing it and can’t for the life of me understand how this isn’t dangerous. I’ve seen people here and there ask about using essential oils in their ecigs and the only answer I’ve ever seen was that it’s dangerous. So anyway, thoughts or insight on inhaling EOs?
I think this statement from there web site is why it is considered safe
– Use gentle breaths, and without inhaling into the lungs, to get the best effect from MONQ.
I’m confused by that though, is it actually possible to breath something in, exhale through your nose, and not have it enter your lungs?
Yes it is. It takes a little practice but is definitely possible.
I think with the looks of it so similar to a e-cig they should have this warning much more present and not something you have to dig for.
Dangerous in todays market in my opinion as it could easily be mistaken for a normal e-cig and used that way.
You have to puff on it without inhaling and then blow it out. So basically it is just a human dispenser for EO, might as well just have one of those things you plug into a wall socket. Brilliant marketing though, how to get people to buy shit that already exists in a much better and safer form to add to the other pile of useless
I use something similar to this product! Looks something like this…

Well, I’ve been using this kind of Diffuser - PureSpa Compact Ultrasonichttp://natadviser.com/best-essential-oil-diffuser-2016-2017/#10-best-essential-oil-diffuser-reviews and I have to admit it does require some practice not to let the stuff into your lungs when inhaling - this one just works better for me than monq.
