QUIT SMOKING & VAPING

To Mouth Cravings
A tobacco-free non-electronic inhaler to quit smoking and vaping.
It’s the year 1636, a dark quiet sadness has replaced the joyful noise of life that once rumbled the busy streets of Nijmegen Netherlands. Everyone avoids interactions with others and the social events that were a big part of the Dutch culture. Except for one person…
Despite the disturbing appearance of plague doctors’ attire, it was the “personal protective equipment” of their time. In the 21st century, there may be things we can learn from their approach to protecting themselves from illness through the contents of their beak masks, without looking like something out of a horror movie.
DID YOU KNOW? The beak mask of plague doctors held really high importance in maintaining their health.
At the height of the great plague, the plague doctor’s outfit served as a way for physicians to safely care for their patients with decreased risk to their own health. Stuffed with dried plants, the beak of their mask was used as a sort of “air filter”. The dried plants were believed to purify the air as it passed through them, before being inhaled into the respiratory system. The robe and gloves were a means of protecting their skin. The cane worked as a measuring tool for the distance the physician would maintain between themself and the patient (1, 2). The elements of the protective outfit all served a purpose in keeping the physician healthy and preventing the spread of the plague. Although plague doctors used beak masks with dried plants to decrease illness, it is not documented that this was a preventative measure people would use throughout life to fight illness during the plague.
Although plague doctors used beak masks with dried plants to fight illness, there is no evidence that normal people used them.
But let’s talk about the beak mask a little more. The Black Plague is often closely associated with the image of the plague doctor’s beak mask. While it is a bit creepy, this mask held high importance in maintaining the physician’s health. Many plants are known to have antibacterial and antiviral properties (3). The dried plants and herbs stuffed inside helped to purify the air, in a similar way to how we now use essential oils.
DID YOU KNOW? Essential oils are the concentrated form of dried plants. Meaning, we can use the same things as the plague doctors did, in a Füm™, to boost our body's ability to fight illness the same way.
What was in the mask?
The plague doctors used plants in the beak mask as a way to protect their health. Sounds very similar to using essential oils with FUM!. Essential oils are the concentrated form of plants, made from the roots, stems, leaves, bark, fruit, etc., of plants (4). The effectiveness of the plants in enhancing wellness can be utilized efficiently through the use of essential oils. Plants were known to be an excellent way of purifying the air and shielding against illness. Similarly, essential oils could also be a very effective tool to enhance our wellness.
It is commonly believed that beak masks would have had dried peppermint, eucalyptus, clove, cinnamon, rose, rosemary, and carnation stuffed in them. There is little documentation of what exactly was used, but these plants are the ones most likely to have been included. These plants are well known as being effective tools for increasing our bodies’ ability to fight illness. Since the plague, this blend of plants has been used in many applications as a way to enhance wellness, in the form of essential oils, dried plants, in foods, etc. Füm™ has formulated many of these essential oils (plus a few other good ones!) into our Shield Cores. Shield Cores contain clove, peppermint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, lemon, orange, and tangerine essential oils. These essential oils are commonly used to promote wellness by supporting your body in fighting illnesses. Shield Cores and FUM are a way to carry a natural wellness booster with you everywhere, without the need of a creepy beak mask.
Plants have been known throughout history to be effective tools for supporting wellness. Maybe the plague doctors were onto something - using a tool to inhale the benefits of plants and promote wellness. Füm can be your tool to inhale the benefits of essential oils everywhere.

Best device to quit
One nicotine quitting pack and it got me through wanting to smoke or vape ANYTHING. I don’t know what voodoo you got in those cores, but I’m cured with the need/desire to smoke anything. can’t think of another product that actually delivered on their promise, thank you FUM!!!
I love everything about it...
I love everything about this product. Purchased it to stop smoking and it helped immensely. Since then have bought more cores and they are great. I recommend it to all my friends. Thank you!!!
I had been decreasing my nicotine use through vaping and had gotten to using 0mg juices. When switched to using only FUM, I was very happy with the ease and FREEDOM of the product. I see it now as a simple essential oil delivery system for personal on-the-go aromatherapy.
My husband has been using Fum
My husband has been using Füm inhaler to help quit his dipping habit. Seems to be helping with the cravings! It’s a journey but we are happy to have a natural way to help kick the habit!
Such a great tool to have!
This core has been so key for me in my 30 day challenge of making healthier eating choices. I cut back on dairy, processed sugar, grains, legumes, and coffee. I’m on day 22 and I’m not even craving any of these. It’s helped me to press pause, take some breaths, and reset my mind to stay strong. Definitely recommend!
Amazing for kicking habits
I’m a mental health and addiction counselor and am constantly trying to help clients quit smoking. Typically I suggest black pepper on a toothpick but ever since finding füm this is what I recommend! Their conquer cores are so wonderful for the recovery community!!!!
Pure, organic, ethically sourced, natural flavours.
I Love the feeling it gives me.
Completed 30 Day Smoke/Vape Free Challenge!
For what seems to be a simple idea, is a genius product. I tend to fidget and/or have a bit of an oral fixation especially during the work day. Very happy with it.
I absolutely love my Füm. The packaging is sustainable! The website give amazing information and the shipping was much faster than I anticipated! CUSTOMER FOR LIFE!
I cannot recommend Füm enough. Not only are the products high quality, customer service is on point. Way above and beyond my expectations! I have no reservations about being a repeat customer for life! Thank you, Füm!
