Just add a few drops to your diffuser and let the relaxing scent fill your room. You’ll be breathing easy and drift off to dreamland in no time.
As any parent knows, bedtime can be a battle. Between homework and after-school activities, it can be hard to wind down at the end of the day. However, Sweet Dreams Essential Oil Blend can help create a calming atmosphere that is perfect for bedtime. Simply add a few drops of the oil to a roll-on bottle filled with a carrier oil, and apply it to your child’s wrists and temples before bedtime. The soothing scent will help lull them to sleep.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of relaxation that comes with using a personal care product made with essential oils. Sweet Dreams is one of my favorite essential oil blends to use because it helps me wind down at the end of the day and get a good night’s sleep. I always wake up feeling well-rested and ready to face the day ahead.
What If Your Child Doesn’t Like The Smell?
Some kids find the scent of an essential oil off-putting, but there are ways to still use them. One way is to simply roll it on the bottom of their feet and put socks on. The pores of the feet are actually an excellent place to apply diluted essential oils. The large pores make it even easier to absorb the oil into the body. This is a great way to still get the benefits of essential oils without having to deal with the scent.
