I wondered if the Goop "child-calming spray" was a gentle medley of relaxing lavender and capsaicin, but no – there's a chance that would actually be effective, and Goop would never allow that.

Alaska is about 3 times bigger than Spain.
Spain is approximately 505,370 sq km, while Alaska is approximately 1,481,348 sq km.

I would say that is pretty significant. Everybody thought Alaska was way bigger, and they were right.

Incidentally, Skeptics with a K did a full show review of Goop Lab recently. Worth a listen. The most disturbing part to me was that the show completely ignored best practice for talking about suicide. That could cause real harm. I have a friend who is a suicide survivor, and I did my due diligence and gave her a content warning just in case she was thinking of watching it out of curiosity.
