Is your little one convinced there’s a monster under the bed or elsewhere in the room? If so, this free monster spray label printable and repellent recipe are just what the doctor (or in this case, the mom 😉 ) ordered! This 2 ingredient recipe and printable monster repellent label can even help vanquish some of your monsters, but more on that in a bit!
Kiddos fearing that something is lurking under their bed or in their closet is nothing new. In fact, as far too many exhausted parents know, it’s pretty common. At one point, my son began to think monsters were seeking refuge in his room. Luckily, I had an idea for this “monster” label and simple spray.
How did I use this monster spray printable and the magic elixir within? I’m so glad you asked! Each night, after story time, I had my son spray a couple squirts of “monster repellent” around his room, concentrating on the areas where the monster liked to hang out. Then, I would leave the spray bottle complete with monster spray label near the bed … just in case he should need it in the middle of the night.
While the monster spray complete with monster repellent label were not 100% at getting my son to sleep through the night, it definitely helped. Side note, I also think letting him be in charge of spraying this repellent helped as well because it made him feel empowered and more in control of the situation! Overall, since this recipe is so quick and easy to make and the monster spray printable is free, I think it’s worth a try if your home is experiencing it’s own monster infestation. 🙂
While I recommend using lavender in your monster spray because it’s soothing and can aid in sleep, you can opt for whatever scents (essential oils) you like. For example, if your child has a cold consider whipping up a special batch of monster spray that includes peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender essential oils to help alleviate congestion!
As mentioned above, this monster label and spray isn’t just for kids. In fact, it can be used to help banish grownup monsters as well—monsters like that big presentation you’re giving tomorrow or the household budget you’re finally going to tackle! Yep, since lavender is known to promote relaxation and help one fall asleep, this “monster” spray (printable label optional) is great for adults as well; simply use it like a linen spray or room deodorizer!
