Having 3 kiddos with ADD/ADHD, I know all too well what it’s like for them to have issues falling asleep. I love the power of essential oils and for relaxing they work wonders. I myself love some lavender body butter before bed. I love this DIY Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend. It’s super simple to make and smells amazing!!
The essential oils I’m using in this blend are Lavender, Peace & Calming II & Frankincense. You will also need a carrier oil (I used almond oil), a roller bottle (I was all out so I improvised with a glass dropper bottle). You may also need a plastic pipette, however I did not.
I started off by adding:
9 drops of Frankincense (helps alleviate nervous energy)
15 drops of Peace & Calming II (very calming and promotes rest)
20 drops of Lavender (helps you relax and unwind)
You could certainly cut this in thirds and make less but I made a pretty good sized bottle. I added extra Lavender, because I really love the smell…you could add equal amounts of the Peace & Calming II and Lavender though. I then topped it off with some carrier oil filling the bottle until it was about 3/4 of the way full.
This is a really relaxing, pleasant scent. At bedtime, I suggest putting this on the bottoms of your kiddos (and your) feet and maybe even a little on the back of the neck and your wrists. Sweet Dreams!!
