HOW GLOW DREAMING CAME TO BE
There is nothing worse for a parent than when their child is suffering.
Sadly, at an early age, my daughter had to face the pain of unexpectedly losing someone she loved. It affected her greatly and, before we knew it, she had become gripped by a fear of death. She began to associate sleep with death and feared never waking up.
We took her to see psychologists, we redecorated her room, we even took her to sleep school, all with minimal success.
BASED ON SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
I was desperate to help her, so I started reading different research, studies and theories about sleep and sleeplessness. I started to realise that no one theory on its own would solve the problem, but that perhaps, through a combination of theories, I could create a master sleep aid, something that would help my daughter feel safe and let her sleep with the peace she needed and deserved.
That's how Glow Dreaming was born. By fusing light therapy, aromatherapy, white noise and a humidifier, I managed to find the answer we were searching for.
LIGHT THERAPY, AROMATHERAPY, HUMIDIFICATION AND WHITE NOISE
My daughter loved the deep red light – it helped her feel relaxed and at peace. I found the best quality essential oil I could find, blended by one of the world's leading naturopath's – a beautiful scent cloud relaxed her and took away her fears, helping her drift off to sleep. The cool vapour made it easier for her to breath. And the gentle hum of the vapour rising into the air was mesmerising and relaxing.
A HAPPY (SLEEPY) ENDING
The effects of these different sleep aids combined to relax and calm my daughter, and whisk her off to sleep. Before long, she was sleeping the night through and was once again the carefree, happy little girl she used to be.
