IMPORTANT NOTES/TIPS:
• This product is alcohol based
• Suggested fragrance oil load for this application: up to 8%. Multiply your product weight by .08 and the resulting number is the weight of the fragrance oil you should add.
• You may need to adjust the rates somewhat if the fragrance oil you are using is on the strong side. Make a small amount to test your fragrance in before committing to a large batch.

Step 1: Pour 2 ounces of Fragrant Room and Body Spray into the measuring cup.

Decorate your Monster Spray bottles:
Once your Monster Spray is made, have your children decorate the bottles (with your help, of course!). Collect some craft supplies and let the children make their Monster Spray bottles unique to them! Some ideas include: Scraps of fabric, ribbons, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, sequins, beads, buttons, flowers, stickers, etc. (Don’t forget the glue!) The kids will know which decorative accessories to use to make sure those monsters know they mean business!

I had a friend’s children come over to help decorate these bottles and this is what they came up with…pretty cool huh?! I think it lends a bit more “magic” to the Monster Spray when the children decorate it themselves.
