Lee and I have been blessed with two children who sleep well, but we know that’s not the case for everyone. If bedtime is a struggle at your house, this recipe is for you. Even if your kid goes to bed like a champ, they will love adding this bath to their bedtime routine.
Our two-year-old (Gloria) makes sure we follow our bedtime routine to a T. We put her stuffed animals to bed, she climbs into her crib, we get her a cup of water, turn her little heater on, and she goes to bed happy.
But on evenings when she’s not so happy to go to bed, we throw in a bath. A bath is fun and helps calm her so that we can put her to bed on a happy note. This Sweet Dreams Bath recipe will be the perfect addition to your bedtime routine and Gloria agrees.
What I Love About This Recipe
I love that when Gloria is having an emotional night, this bath helps us end the day on a positive note. This recipe is also a great way for adults to wind down after a hard day. Bath salts for kids are amazing and somewhat of a lifesaver!
What’s in the Sweet Dreams Bath Recipe?
Epsom Salts are beneficial for your kids whether or not they are mixed with essential oils! They help promote sleep and have added benefits for your skin.
Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend
Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend is a combination of Lavender, Marjoram, Frankincense, Cedarwood (Himalayan), and German Chamomile Essential Oils. It has relaxing and calming properties which will help your little one get the sleep they desperately need!*
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated Coconut Oil helps dilute the essential oils and allow them to disperse throughout all of the epsom salts!
