A Remedy For Bedtime Fears in Toddlers (witch spray!)

Welcome to Real Food RN! A blog with the mission to empower you to live your healthiest life possible, starting today.

So my daughter recently developed a fear of Witches, just another one to add to the list of bedtime fears. 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“.

Witch Spray

What you need:

  • Lavender essential oil
  • Distilled water
  • 1 spray bottle — where to find


  • Add water and a 20-30 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
  • 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, crocodiles, sharks, Swiper (the sneaky fox), or whatever the current fear is…

  1. Here is my recipe for DIY Monster Spray…. similar 🙂 But I have to say, you should use “witch hazel” in the witch spray, that would be awesome!!! The kids would love it I bet.
