Good Sleep Good Life

SLEEP…..elusive for many, never enough, and the phrase “sleeping like a baby” is a joke because actual babies wake up A LOT during the night. I should know. My 21 month old is just now sleeping though the night! Lol

Getting more sleep is one of the major reasons I bought my essential oil kit. Bryce had such a hard time calming down at night and my anxiety issues would mean when my head finally did hit the pillow I would just…lay there thinking….totally not sleeping. Anyone with me here? I know I can’t be the only one. So frustrating because I would be SO exhausted yet my mind just would not shut off.

The first thing I did when I got my kit was diffuse lavender that night in Bryce’s room. I also massaged a drop of Lavender on each foot. And a miracle happened. My kid fell asleep. Like in 1/2 the time it normally took. I started thinking maybe there was some truth to this oil thing.

I started looking up essential oil combos for sleep and anxiety and found a lot. Apparently sleep is a popular subject in google land.

I placed another order and tried popular oils like Cedarwood, Lavender and Peace & Calming. Cedarwood and Lavender have been the winners for Bryce. We have made up a roller ball that he applies to his neck every night before bed. Valor has been great for my anxiety and I now fall asleep much faster and more importantly, stay asleep!!

Below are the most popular essential oils for sleep. I encourage you to try as many as you can and find “your” magic sleep combo.

If you are interested in purchasing essential oils I recommend getting Young Living’s Starter Kit because it includes 11 oils PLUS a diffuser.
