Some of my favorite Essential Oils for better rest are:Orange (yes! happy sleep = good sleep)
Juniper Berry (supports sweet dreams and seems to help keep the bad ones away)
Lavender (it's so calming...zzzz)
Commercially available blends: Serenity, Balance, Peace
Here are several recipe ideas for making sleep sprays. My children love the spray format because it's easy for them to apply the spray to their pillow and stuffed animals. They also like to use the spray under the bed if they are a bit nervous. BONUS: creepy creatures are completely repelled by essential oils.
Essential Oil amounts are for a 1oz. Misting Bottle.
You can easily double these amounts for a stronger aroma or larger bottle. To make, fill a misting bottle 3/4 of the way full with distilled or very clean water, then add the essential oils. Attach the misting top, shake and spray. Add labels.
