Snug as a bug: Essential oils for when your kids go to sleep
Getting children ready for bed can seem like a rodeo that never ends: Kids asking for one more snack, two more songs, and three middle-of-the-night wake ups make it all a little chaotic. Don’t worry, we’ve got your secret weapon for nighttime battles: essential oils!Use these essential oil tips and tricks to help your little ones (and big ones) get just as excited about bedtime as you are.
While we love essential oils, they aren’t magically going to transform your nighttime rascal into a sleepy angel. Bedtime routines, consistent sleep times, and a good environment (dark, cool, quiet) are the first steps in helping children sleep well.
Prep the bedroom
All the ups and downs of life can make it tricky for kids to fall asleep and stay asleep. Try to create a pleasant, peaceful environment in your children’s bedrooms as they prepare to sleep.
And don’t forget to let them spray this monster spray anywhere the scaries may lurk in their bedroom.
YL tip: Use any of the oils below to create your own monster spray recipe that is sure to banish monsters and help kids wind down.
Take a calming bath
Nothing says soothing like a warm soak. Add essential oils to your children’s bath while you pray they start to wind down. Lavender, Cedarwood, Peace & Calming®, Roman Chamomile, and Rose are a few of our favorites.
Make some bath drops
If you’re looking to dilute your oils and create a bath blend that’s irresistible, whip up some bath drops.
