Monsters are big in our house and by that I mean popular. My kids like to read about monsters, draw monsters, pretend to be monsters. It's all in good fun and they enjoy themselves, but sometimes at night it's hard to remember that monsters are just pretend.
We've tried a few tricks to get rid of the monsters but then I heard about a new product called Anti-Monster Spray (available from Nayla Natural Care). Now as parents we know that monsters aren't real so obviously this spray can't remove something that doesn't exist. But kids don't know that.
So what's in this spray? Water? Perfume? Hardly. It's an anti-viral spray with essential oils designed to help boost your child's immune system. The Anti-Monster Spray keeps away monsters and guards against the bacteria that causes staph, strep and pneumonia infections. That's a pretty powerful spray.
When the Anti-Monster Spray arrived, all of my kids were excited to try it (even my older daughter who doesn't believe in monsters, or so she says). After reading our bedtime book, which coinsidentally was ghost stories for kids, all three of my kids were eager to try out the spray.
They each gave me instructions on where to spray: on the bed, under the bed, in the closet, my son's drum set, my daughter's book shelf, my youngest's play table. It was a nice aroma too, sort of like a misty Spring morning (if that's an aroma).
Now you may have some reservations about spraying anything on your kids' beds, I know I would, but Nayla Natural Care, a family owned and operated Canadian online store, prides itself on carrying safe, non-toxic, high quality and unique products for families. And they review and test every product before it is available in their store.
The spray is available in four different colours: pink, blue, green and purple, but the only difference is the colour; the contents are the same in all four products. The colour is just for show with your child. Since I was using this spray for all three of my kids (boy and girls) I opted for the more gender nuetral green spray.
Now the Anti-Monster Spray has become part of our nighttime ritual, whether monsters lurk or not. I think my oldest daughter loves the aroma on her bed when she goes to sleep. My younger two like the pre-emptive nature of stopping the goulies before they even think of approaching. As for the anti-viral aspect, I can't attest to that, but I can say that during the high fall sick season at school we have been very fortunate in avoiding any bugs. Maybe the Anti-Monster Spray is doing more than keeping away imaginary creatures.
Anti-Monster Spray is handmade by Le FP Green Body Care and it's NOT tested on animals. Available in 240ml/8oz bottles, Nayla Natural Care sells this in their online store for $14.99 (Cdn.).
