Goodlettsville, TN (September 20, 2018) – In the ever-expanding urban sprawl, finding fresh, unpolluted air that can better your health is rare, but not impossible. Forest Bathing is a scientifically-proven remedy to solve a wide variety of human health conditions, especially those associated with big city life.

While forest bathing sounds like an activity that involves bathing in a forest, water is not necessary to have this experience. Forest bathing encompasses the concept of spending time in wooded areas and ‘bathing’ in all of the senses.

Today, health enthusiasts are spending time visiting forests to allow the sensory input of nature that can reset the mind and balance the body. It also can improve stress and anxiety levels. The problem is not all cities are in close proximity to forests, so MONQ has come up with a healthy and easy to use portable alternative.

“We know that there are harmful effects caused by breathing polluted air and more importantly, we also know that there are numerous benefits that can be offered by breathing terpenes from essential oils. MONQ is an essential oil company dedicated to providing simple solutions to improving your health. Through our portable aromatherapy diffusers, we can now bring the essences of the forest and their beneficial sensory properties right to you, to the city, in which you live,” said MONQ’s CEO, Eric Fishman M.D.

There are many components of forest bathing that are beneficial to your overall health but the sense of smell is the most critical. Breathing in aromatic essences, as experienced in forest bathing, based upon essential oils derived from the forest, have a positive effect on the mind and body.

As a part of MONQ’s Feel Nature line, the blend titled Forest contains black spruce, douglas fir, and sandalwood in a portable aromatherapy diffuser. Forest MONQ provides the ability to practice forest therapy and breathe secondary metabolites even in a chaotic city setting.
