Bye, Bye Monster Review and a GIVEAWAY!

Has your child ever had trouble going to sleep at night because he/she is afraid of "monsters in the closet?" Mine certainly has! As a parent, I have often been at a loss as to how to help my child deal with and overcome her fears.

Like so many parents, Kelly Lucente ,author and creator of the Bye Bye Monster® line of products, spent many sleepless nights comforting her frightened child. When she was unable to find a complete solution on the market to help her son overcome his fears, she decided to create her own! She researched nighttime fears and gave voice to her child’s monsters. The Bye Bye Monster® storybook, organic monster spray, and stuffed monster are a complete bedtime solution for children who suffer from nighttime fear.

Kelly sent us a copy of her book, Bye Bye Monster: Joey's Adventure on Monster Street and the organic monster spray to test out. It was a big hit!! Libby was given a solution to her fears while being entertained with a fun story at the same time. After reading the story, we used the organic monster spray to rid her closet, dresser, and under her bed of monsters. And then we sprayed the kitchen and living room too, just to be safe! Libby slept with the spray bottle by her bed and I told her that if she got scared to give her room an extra spray.

Win it: One lucky Snellings Stories reader will receive a copy of the Bye Bye Monster storybook and organic monster spray!

"Essential oils have been used for thousands of years. They come from nature and each offer an important benefit. Some are antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, sedative and stimulating, and much more. Modern-day research has confirmed centuries of practical use of the oils. We believe that using something from nature is better than using a manufactured toxic chemical. Besides the natural properties of the essential oils we use they smell good and we know they are safe to use in our homes."

Wow, the site has a lot of information I didn't expect to find. I learned that antibacterial Cleaners
may contain Triclosan, which is absorbed through the skin and can be tied to liver damage.

I love the idea of the bye-bye monster room spray, and it is made with 100% natural lavendar. I think it would actually work to make kids believe it's getting rid of monsters.
