A remedy for bedtime fears in toddlers

So my daughter recently developed a fear of Witches. Why not? I remember being intensely afraid of the Witch of the West when I was a kid! Every night at bedtime it’s a battle though. So, I came up with an idea: “Anti-Witch spray”.

Directions:

Add water and a few drops of lavender essential oil to a spray bottle. Spray wherever the witches might be right before bed time. Use liberally as lavender promotes relaxation (it makes your little one fall asleep faster). We use it every night before bed and when she has the occasional nightmare. Works every time! Smells great too!!!

You can also make this to scare off monsters, ghosts, Swiper (the sneaky fox), or whatever the current fear is…
