What gave you the idea to create monster repellents? My son developed a significant fear of zombies. It sounds funny, but it wasn’t at the time. He wouldn’t go to bed. When you can’t get a kid to bed, it becomes a desperate situation for everybody. I created a label that said “Zombie Repellent” and slapped it on to a bottle of lavender spray and told him, “Look what I found at the zombie store today!” He sprayed the doors and windows until they were dripping, but he went to bed for the first time in three weeks.
How do you think this can help children and families? It’s about bringing sweet dreams to kids and getting them comfortable to sleep at night and relieving their anxieties naturally and empowering them to not feel so scared when they go to bed.
Are you worried there might be monsters out there that you haven’t created a potion for? I get a lot of ideas from friends, and the two requests that I get most are for ghosts and aliens.
