When I was 12 and my little brother was 3, monsters entered our home.  You know, the monsters with one eye, a snaggle tooth and wiry hair.  The kind that hide in children’s closets and under their beds. Yea.  That type. So being the older sister that needed to protect her little brother at all costs, I emptied out my Suave hairspray bottle, wrapped a piece of paper around it, wrote “Monster Be Gone” and added some water to the bottle – instant DIY Monster Spray.  I told him just two squirts would help to keep the Monsters away.

Well, now I’m 28 and it’s my son that is 3… and Monster Teddy Bears have taken over our home.  Fortunately my Monster Be Gone has matured a little since I have grown. Here is the result:

DIY Monster Spray with Free Printable LabelI did use a Suave bottle, but it was my daughters detangler spray bottle this time around.  I added water and a little lavender oil (which is perfect for relaxation).  We do two squirts each night before bed.  He thinks it’s fun to spray it up into the fan and watch it blow away AND he loves the smell.  I don’t know how much he thinks it repels those Monsters, but it is a feel good thing for him.  He enjoys doing it and it is routine now so adds to the stability of his environment, making him feel safe.
