Homemade Monster Spray for Children Afraid at Bed Time

Have a kiddo who’s afraid of monsters at bedtime?  Mix up a bottle of this Monster Spray and let him or her chase those bad guys away before bed.

Involve your child in making their weapon and they will be excited to try it out!  They will have fun, and love knowing that they are having a hand in chasing away the monsters.  

They can help decorate the bottle with googly eyes or any monstery type stickers you have around or pick up some from the dollar store.  

Other ideas include a warrior or princess, or making their name with letter stickers.  The possibilities are endless.   Then let them spray all the places in their room that need it when it’s bedtime.  Your child will be confident there are no monsters in the room which will help them fall asleep.

Use a calming essential oil such as Serenity Restful Blend or Lavender to help your child relax and fall asleep gently.

Supplies for your monster sleep spray

You’ll need a spray bottle for this kids bedtime spray

I recommend glass for this because essential oils and plastic aren’t friends. I know glass and kids can be concerning, however, if you use this under supervision, it should be ok??

I usually pick up THESE GLASS SPRAY BOTTLES from Amazon

You’ll also need some unscented witch hazel.

This can be found at your local drugstore, superstore, or grocery store. I usually order mine from Amazon. This is one that I love and use for many of my Essential Oil DIY projects.

Directions to Make Monster Sleep Spray

First, add the drops of essential oil to the spray bottle.  I love Serenity for this, but you could use:

Second, top off the bottle with distilled water or Witch Hazel.  I prefer distilled because it is less likely to leave hard water stains.  You can pick some up at your grocery store in the bottled water section.

Lastly, add your decorations to your spray bottle.  These could include cute monster stickers, googly eyes, your child’s name, a warrior to fight off the monsters, a princess, whatever you think your child would like.  Pick some supplies up from the dollar store, or, if you have one, use your cutting machine to make a custom design for your child.

To use the monster sleep spray, Just give the bottle a gentle shake before spraying to mix up the water and oil.

Your child can spray under the bed, their bed sheets, in the closet, wherever it’s needed.

The calming oils will help your child gently fall asleep, and they will be confident knowing that the monsters have returned back to the land they came from.
