All Natural Sleep Blend for Kids

 

Tired mamas ask me often for a safe and gentle sleep remedy that might calm their little night owls at home.  This is a favorite blend for night owls large and small in our family.  It's also one that I'll diffuse in the house just because I love the fragrance combination so much.  This blend is full of versatility, it's even been used in our car to keep our dogs relaxed on long trips! This is a super simple blend, only two EOs required and a little carrier oil to be properly diluted for the kiddos.  Teens and adults can use it full strength. First up, a long-standing choice for it's restful sleep properties, lovely Lavender!  I like pure Lavender in a sleep blend (obviously) but it's especially great during allergy season because it's a natural antihistamine, remember that factoid!  And I can't say enough about Marjoram either, it's one of my top 10 essential oils, no kidding!  It's properties include pain relief from sore or strained muscles, decongestant, and expectorant.  Like Lavender, it too is especially calming.  Marjoram and Lavender combined is a gentle way to help your night owls drift off to sleep.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. You can apply the blend to the bottoms of little feet by roller bottle, spray bottle - both with FCO or, with a small amount of Naked Salve before bedtime.
  2. Diffuse the blend if preferred, it's nice anytime of day actually :)
  3. Apply a drop of the blend to a cotton ball and place near pillow for children old enough. Also, a drop on a favorite blanket or stuffed animal can work wonders too!

Naked Salve can also be found at the CW Shop!

Karen, the Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) is liquid at room temperature, allowing it to be used in the roller bottle. Regular coconut oil will not work in a roller bottle due to it solid state.

will using regular coconut oil still work? Or, does it have to be fractionated coconut oil?

Thank you, I’m happy you found CW! My rule of thumb is approximately 45 drops total of a blend or single EO per 2 oz jar.

I’ve been diffusing Lavender and Marjoram in my boys rooms at night and I LOVE how it smells! But I’ve been guessing at how many drops per oil I should put it in. What do you suggest? Thanks :)

If it’s warm enough where you live for unfractionated coconut oil to stay liquid then I’d use that. It’s too cool here usually (under 76degF with A/C) to stay liquid for me.

How do we know if it’s fractionated? I have a jar of organic virgin coconut oil that sits on the counter and stays liquid all the time.
