We can tell you first hand that this monster spray has worked. How do we know? One of Christine’s Sugarplums became afraid of monsters. Her other two never had a problem sleeping in their own room, never had nightmares, and didn’t need a nightlight. But her middle daughter let those monsters in. So, in a struggle to help her sleep better we created some very special, very powerful DIY Magic Monster Spray with essential oils. Thank goodness it worked!
A good night’s sleep.
We recommend making the Magic Monster Spray together with your children. That way you can talk about their fears while they are having fun making a craft. When adding the essential oil, you can simply say that monsters hate the smell of essential oils.
How do you use Monster Spray? After your normal bedtime routine, bring out the magic monster spray. You can explain again that the magic spray will not let any monsters into the room, then ask where the monsters are getting in. Spray those areas first. Let your child spray and have siblings and family help as well. Spray other areas too, like windows or closet doors.
Keep the bottle within reach and hopefully, with Magic Monster spray nearby, bedtime monsters will soon be history!
