Nightmares, monsters, scary sounds… there are no shortage of things causing kids angst at night. And now with the crazy YouTube Kids revelations where parents have found disturbing content embedded in what should be harmless kid shows, our little ones have even more to fear.
While we cut the cord on YouTube Kids and well… all kid shows on YouTube… my heart goes out to all the children and their families working hard to overcome invisible traumas.
With a few of our members and friends reaching out to us, we decided to share with you our favorite DIY Monster spray that is helping empower kids with the ability to vanquish those nightmare figures that pop in their minds when it is time to calm down and go to bed.
What you’ll need:
- 3 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 3 drops Sandalwood Essential Oil
- 3 drops Vetiver Essential Oil
- 3 drops Orange Essenital Oil
- 3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
- 1 Spray Bottle
- A pinch of Himalayan salt
- Witch hazel
- Distilled water
** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Make sure you’re not wasting your money on fake essential oils, or oils diluted in questionable solvents (even if they’re labeled as “pure essential oil”). Don’t miss our complete guide on how to find quality pure essential oils to ensure you’re not wasting your money on brands of oils that legally carry out questionable or unethical practices and mislead you through deceitful marketing practices.
Place a generous pinch of salt to your spray bottle. Add your essential oils. Gently swirl it around so the oils and salt dissolve into each other. Then fill the bottle half way with witch hazel, and fill the rest of the way with distilled water.
Shake and spray.
