Last night Sophie freaked out at bed time for the first time. Why you ask? Frickin Monsters Inc. that's why! Now she thinks that monsters live in the closet. Today I decided to make a "No More Monsters Spray". I found several versions online such as this one and this one, but decided that I wanted faster results. I want our monsters exterminated tonight! I took a spray bottle that I have used for water, added fresh water, 5 drops of peppermint extract (that will exterminate ants too!) and then added a few drops of vanilla extract to sweeten it up a bit.
The commercial versions use chamomile, lavender and mandarin extracts that I think would be nice and calming but I wanted to use what I had on hand. My vanilla-peppermint version smell quite lovely. She has already sprayed off a quarter of the bottle.
As a final touch I printed the above picture out and used clear packing tape to stick it to the bottle.

I'm totally going to do this! My Sophia is deathly afraid of her closet. I have to make a baricade of her babies in the middle of her bed so she can't see the closet from her side of the bed.
