Monk Oil - I am so please to introduce Monk Oil to the nonchalantmom family, I feel that they fit perfectly here and I know there is more to come from this dynamic duo. I am going to leave the intro to their product in their own words but I will add... I don't want to live without this oil, it is the centering in my day, almost as good as waving to my kids as they get on the bus! Monk Oil is the creation of Katie and Monika who have been best friends since 2000 when they met working at a honey factory in Brooklyn. Monk Oil came about after they went on their annual camping trip in the Pacific Northwest. "As much as we both love living in New York City, we’d both been feeling the strain of urban life and were having reentry problems! We were working full time in Brooklyn and wanted to be present throughout the day not just physically but energetically too. As we all know, nature is life’s best healer and we came away from our camping trip feeling not just intact, but also inspired. We wondered how to create that feeling of calm, inner stability and harmony with the outer world while still in the city. Monk Oil came out of that need. Monk Oil was imagined with a blend of ingredients to support the body, the soul, and the spirit."
They started wearing their Potion around town and the next thing they knew exhausted New Yorkers and friends were asking “what is that amazing smell?” when they walked into a room. While wearing Monk Oil, they felt they "had on a magical sheath as we navigated our days." They started selling it in small homemade batches to their friends and decided to make Monk Oil official. "We saw that both men and women in the city really needed some comfort and Monk Oil could help them." While they are both striving to keep the magic alive in the big city, everyday. We all hope you enjoy their Potions!
