Christmas Shop Small {Monat}

Hi Friends! The countdown to Christmas is officially on and if you are anything like me you are still pondering what to buy some people. That's why I'm running this Christmas Shop Small feature every week. When you support a small business you're supporting a family and what better way to shop this Christmas?

Today i'm featuring a sweet lady that I've met through blogging. She's a wife, a mom, a blogger, and she sells Monat. So get cozy and read all about what inspired her to become a sales lady for Monat.

Hello Elena. Welcome to my blog sweet blog.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I'm a first time mom (after battling infertility for 5 years) busy living a beautiful life with my baby girl Georgia June and my husband Joe, our dog Frank & our cat Scout. We built a house in 2014 and have continued to work to make it a home. I work full time for a gas and electric utility company. I blog and sell Monat on the side.

Can you tell us about Monat?
Monat is a line of hair care products. They're plant based, anti-aging, all natural. Anyone can benefit from Monat whether you've got amazing hair or your hair is falling out, whether you're female or male, whether you're young or old. Monat has products for everyone. Monat stands for Modern Nature (it's pronounced Mo-Nate), their products are safe, pure, and sustainable.

What inspired you to become a part of the Monat community and become a fabulous sales lady for the company?
I tried 1 sample of Monat and instantly fell in love and started selling a few weeks later. I absolutely love their products and have seen real results (as have my customers) quickly. What I really love about the products is that they're both fertility friendly and breastfeeding safe which were very important to me. On top of that they have given me the softest hair I've ever had. It's hard to keep my hands off of it!

What does the Monat company stand for and what does it mean to you?
Monat's vision is to be a global leader in naturally based, anti-aging, innovation—with an unrivaled business model that enhances the self-confidence and financial well-being of one million families around the globe each year. Their mission is to help people everywhere enjoy beautiful, healthy, fulfilling lives through our exceptional, naturally based products, a fun and rewarding business opportunity, and a culture of family, service, and gratitude.

To me it means a fun community to belong to (and I know A LOT about community and their importance due to our infertility struggles), it means helping and wowing people with the power of these products and hearing and seeing the excitement in their voices and on their faces when they tell me they are seeing "sprouts" after 1 week of use. It means getting to meet other amazing and motivated women and just be a part of something that is inevitably growing and becoming a booming business.

What makes you most excited about selling Monat?
When I hear a customer say they have never had their hair feel the way it does after using Monat, after using just ONE sample and wanting to jump on board with our team, after hearing someone say they were able to regrow postpartum hair loss after just a few short weeks of using the products. I love love love to hear how we have helped our customers!

If you could only use product from Monat for the rest of your life, which product would it be? Why?
Black shampoo—it's the bees knees of Monat's products, it's a 2in1 Shampoo and Conditioner and if that was all I could use, that is hands down what I would pick.

What is your best selling item?
The Rejuveniqe Oil is one of our top selling items, there are over 101 uses for it and it can benefit literally anyone.

What is your favorite thing about the Monat, as a whole?
Besides the awesome group of ladies that I have gotten to know over my short time with Monat, I'd say the products.
I've never had the luck I have with Monat with any other product before.

How can all our readers see all the Monat products?
They can visit my site at

Are there any special Monat promotions currently?
There are always really awesome Flash Sales, usually on the weekends Friday to Monday, and they change often.

Do you host parties? If so can you tell our readers about how those work?
We don't really do parties like your typical other MLM companies, but we often do Meet Monat or Wine and Wash parties where people can come out to try the products themselves, be washed & styled with all Monat products!

Lastly, how can my readers get in touch with you about ordering or booking a party?

  1. I had never heard of Monat before. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Emily! Thank you for stopping by and leaving some love. Monat sounds amazing, doesn't it?

  2. I've heard of this brand and have not tried it out yet. I have heard some good things and then saw some bad things (which comes with any product). I have a friend though that raves about how the products are. Her hair does look amazing!!! Yah for shopping small!!!

    1. Hi Sweet Friend! Thank you for stopping by. I've heard nothing but good things about Monat. I should be getting some samples soon. I'm so excited to try them. You can always message Elena for some samples! It's hard to judge a product until you try it.

      You know I love shopping small!! :)

  3. I've heard so much about this lately. It blew up out of nowhere!! I'll probably try it after my hair is healthy again- well water killed my hair!

    1. Hi Summer! I know, Monat really has blown up out of nowhere. I've been hearing so much about it lately that I just knew that I had to try it for myself and feature Elena on my blog.

      I'm sorry that your hair is so damaged from well water. I had no idea well water would do that to your hair! Makes me very glad that my husband and I didn't build and use the well on our property.

      Feel free to message Elena and see if Monat could actually help your hair! I know it's great post partum so it might be great for this, too!

  4. Monster sounds awesome. I love supporting small businesses with natural products!

    1. Hello there. Thank you for your comment. Monat does sound awesome, right?! I love supporting small businesses that sell natural products, too. That's why I had to run a feature on Monat.

  5. I've heard good things about these products! Nathan's teacher (and several of my friends) are reps for Monat!

    1. Hi Sweet Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have you used Monat yet? I'm so excited to get my samples because i've heard nothing but good things about them, too!

  6. I love that there is baby product too!

    1. Hi Jordyn! Isn't it awesome that there is a junior line, too? I love that!
