Pharmacist makes 'monster spray' to help North Okanagan kids sleep better

It's guaranteed to keep monsters away with just one quick spray, leading to a peaceful sleep for little ones free of any monster-related disturbances.

The "monster spray" is only available from Guardian - Armstrong Pharmacy and Wellness Centre and only on special request from pharmacist Jason Buerfeind.

Monster Spray 100MG/ML, reads the bottle, with directions that state: "Spray one spray in bedroom at night to scare off monsters." Expiry Aug. 2042.

Meg Pearson told she made her own monster potion to calm her five-year-old's nerves at bedtime.

However, Pearson said, Declan 5, and James 4, weren't too impressed with her homemade spray.

She then called Armstrong Pharmacy and Wellness Centre for some official pharmacy-approved spray.

"I thought that's an awesome idea, there's no way I'm passing this one up," Armstrong pharmacist Jason Buerfeind said.

The monster spray is actually distilled water with a little bit of mint or lavender essential oils in it.

Buerfeind said lavender does have calming properties so there's a little bit of science to it.

So does it work?

"It's very, very effective," Pearson said. "They were asleep before 7:30 a.m. last night and it was wonderful."

Pearson said she was incredibly touched by the kind gesture and would highly recommend Buerfeind's monster spray.

"He's got that potion mastered to a tee," she said.

Buerfeind isn't sure whether the mint or the lavender will be better at warding off monsters.

"Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of studies written on the subject to compare the two."
