College students experience a lot of stress, and I do not think I need a statistic to prove that. Aside from the classes we take on a daily basis, many of us also have hours of homework, jobs, family members to take care of and clubs or sports we are a part of that take up the rest of our time.

Because of our busy schedules, our anxiety levels heighten and our ability to calm ourselves begins to decrease. This inability makes our daily lives much more stressful and makes doing daily tasks a lot less thrilling.

I can sit here and tell you all the ways to help relieve stress and calm anxieties, but that is not what this piece is about. I want to talk about a particular product that I have found that helps with these feelings in numerous ways.

MONQ Aromatherapy diffusers are portable diffuser pens that help people with their various anxieties, stresses and other negative emotions or stresses they may be feeling.

Each one of these diffusers have about three different essential oils inside that burn as your breath in the pen. Instead of breathing it into your lungs, you suck in and blow the essential oil vapors out through your nose.

Our nose harbors smell receptors that travel through our nervous systems and into our brains. This phenomenon makes smells elicit certain emotional responses: gagging if the smell is bad, happiness if the smell is good, nostalgia if the smell reminds of us the past and anxiety relief the scent is a calming one.

Essential oils are known to help people relieve stress and anxiety, and MONQ diffuser pens do exactly that by burning essential oils that travel to those smell receptors and elicit those relaxing sensations into our bodies.

These diffuser pens have a number of different blends like love, sleepy, zen, happy, etc. and within these blends, the essential oils are extracts of orange, frankincense, ylang ylang, eucalyptus, sage and many more. Each one of these can be used for a different purpose to help you combat whatever ailment you are dealing with.

Now, like anything that involves the use of homeopathic medicinal techniques, there are people who claim that they do not actually work, and it is all a placebo.

I have used the happy and stress relief diffusers and they instantly made me feel better. I cannot say for certain if it was a placebo, but I do know that my body felt more relaxed, my emotions felt heightened and I just overall felt like everything was a little better.

Things like pluggable air diffusers and incense also help because they emit smells that go through those smell receptors, so if you want something bigger that you can use only at home, they work just as well.

If you are finding that life is becoming a bit too stressful and you want something small and healthy to help you feel better, MONQ Aromatherapy diffusers may be something that can help you out.

Just remember, those smell receptors can help your emotional state a lot more than you think.
