Bravery In A Bottle Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I recently received a really awesome new product from a company that I didn't know existed until now but I am definitely going to be telling all my friends with children about it! It's such a unique and very effective way of giving your child whatever it is that they need to help with problems in their lives. The company is called Bravery In A Bottle and they sent me the one called Courage Concoction.
I am using their pictures because my little compact camera doesn't work well on silver type products as all I get is my reflection back at me. I really do need a better camera but for now it will have to do. So, bare with me while I use their awesome looking pictures that really do justice to the packaging. I loved that about this product because it makes it so much more interesting to kids so that they are eager to try it and see if it really works. That's half the battle is making it seem "cool" to use, especially with boys!
What Courage Concoction does is make your child less afraid of the things that are unique to them.  Here are some instances that it might be used for. My grandson's problem was going to the doctor and getting his flu shot so that is what they used it for and it did seem to calm him down enough that the visit went really well.
But here are some other suggestions:
*Do they fear doctor & dentist appointments? 
*Despise haircuts? 
*Need a boost before a big game or difficult test? 
*Does your child suffer from separation anxiety?
*Afraid of the dark?
*Flying in an airplane?
You get the idea. I am sure there are plenty more instances that might seem scary to your child. Try this one and see if it helps. It may not get rid of it entirely, but it does give them the confidence to at least try. My grandson really was brave on the ride over and right up to the point of the shot going into the arm, but guess what? Yes, he still went Ouch, but it was a quick and small Ouch and he explained to the nurse that he had a secret weapon to help him.
It's also great for other uses to! I was amazed at how much this one bottle could accomplish and thought I would share some of those idea's with you too. We have a Yorkie named Charlie in our home so he does get around the house pretty good and when he comes into contact with surfaces that I need to make sure there are no germs, I have started to spray this and have found it also acts as a shield so Charlie doesn't like it anymore! I bet you can find other ways to use this spray in your home.
A few suggestions:
*Effective hand sanitizer & germ killer
*Insect Repellent
*Spray your home
*Door knobs
*Anywhere you want to stop the spreading of viral or bacteria illness
*Other uses for Essential Oils, go check out this LINK
I can't wait until next summer to try it out on the mosquitos and gnats that are so bothersome here in Georgia. We have the biggest population of gnats you have ever seen! Very scary indeed!

And just what is in my bottle of Courage Concoction?
Purified Water along with these Essential Oils: Basil, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Lavender, Lemon, Orange, Peppermint and Ravensara

And what does each Essential Oil do that is listed in Courage Concoction?

Lavender - Treats migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, nervous tensions, and emotional stress. Induces sleep. Excellent pain reliever. Boosts immunity. Bug repellent. Lemon - Relieves stress.

As you can see, it is filled with all natural products so none of them should cause you a problem or your family, but as always, double check if you aren't sure about any ingredient. I would rather you be safe than sorry. They do recommend that they not be used by children under the age of 3, otherwise, be sure to supervise your children over that age.
Here is the little poem that came with our bottle:
The bottles are decorated in all kinds of colorful graphics that will delight your child, like this one:

As you can tell, my camera is not the best but it gives you an idea of what they will look like. Now you know why I used their pictures instead of mine! Below is a better picture of our Courage Concoction along with a few of the other sprays that they have for other sprays. There are four sprays all together, Monster Vapor, Courage Concoction, Feeling Crampy and Storm Squasher.
Did you know that bed bugs and dust mites are repelled by Essential Oils? If for no other reason than to get something to help with that, it is worth it to me. I have been tested and came back positive for allergies to dust mites, so this was a huge discovery for me. Since I love the smell of what was in my Courage Concoction, I have been spraying my couch, bed and blankets/pillows or anywhere that I sit or lay down.

You can also get the Monster separately or in Gift Set.  Check out their store to order!
About Bravery In A Bottle:
I have been a stay-at-home Mom for the past 13 years. It is the hardest, but most rewarding job I have had in my life. ...

I developed 4 products to help children with common childhood fears and issues - monsters, the dark, storms, lack of courage when needed most (such as doctor/dentist appointments, haircuts), separation anxiety, and homesickness.

They have worked like a charm on my daughter and son. They have saved me from sleepless nights and squelched many tears. I want to share the bliss with all parents and help all children suffering from common childhood fears.
The awesome folks at Bravery In A Bottle would love to give one winner their own spray bottle for your family! Open in the U.S. & Canada only. Good Luck Everyone!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
