Is your little one convinced that his room is full of monsters just waiting for the lights to go out each night? If so, then your nights probably haven’t been very peaceful of late. Am I right?
This is a pretty common problem. In fact, my son recently began to think that monsters had taken up refuge in his bedroom, and his doctor recommended a “monster spray” to help us all get some sleep. I whipped up this beyond simple recipe and added a monster spray label for good measure, and it has been helping to alleviate his fears.
Each night, after we read books, my son sprays a couple squirts of “monster spray” around the room concentrating on the areas where the monster may be hiding. In my son’s case, the main problem area is behind his bed. Once he’s done spraying the room, the monsters are gone, and everyone can get some sleep.
While this monster spray and monster spray label are not 100% at letting him sleep through the night, they are definitely helping. All in all, since the recipe is so easy and frugal to make, I definitely think it is worth a try if your household is experiencing a monster infestation.
A great thing about this recipe, is you can use whatever scents (essential oils) you please. I recommend lavender because it is soothing and can help one sleep but you could use whatever you’d like.
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 some of the congestion.
