DIY Monster Under the Bed Spray

Are your kids afraid of the dark? Monsters? Shadows? Creatures lurking in their rooms? This DIY monster away spray is the perfect solution. It is natural, smells pleasant and may also help them stay calm and fall asleep with the lavender essential oil.

This is such a fun activity to do with your kids when they start developing fears of monsters under their bed and other creatures in their bedroom. Let them pick out a spray bottle that they can decorate. Add stickers or whatever else to make it personal and fun!

My kids love being involved with making their own spray and helping add the water and decorate their spray bottle. And sometimes it’s that placebo effect that makes all the difference. 

DIY Monster Away Spray

What you need:

  1. Spray bottle (dollar stores are a great place for these)
  2. 5 drops lavender essential oil


  1. Add the essential oils to the spray bottle.
  2. Top off with water.
  3. Shake well before each use and spray under the bed, on linens or wherever the monsters might be lurking. 

This monster under the bed spray will also makes linens smell nice and stuffed animals fell safe too! Switch it up with different essential oils or keep a large bottle handy for quick and easy refills.
