Kids won’t sleep? … There’s an oil for that.

Us mom have all been there … “Okay kids, time for bed.”

But mom:

  • I am thirsty
  • I am hungry
  • I am itchy
  • I am not tired
  • I am afraid
  • My bed is to hard
  • My finger hurts
  • I need my other blanket
  • I need to go potty

You get the drift, bed time for my kids means they all of a sudden get this crazy burst of energy and do not want to go to bed. My kids bedtime is 8 o’clock … My 3 1/2 year old is the hardest. Those good ole bottles of oils I have collected come in handy at time like this.

I wanted to share with you momma’s some of the amazing products I use. 1st of all, if you don’t have a diffuser in the kids room you are missing out! When the room is stinky: Purification. When the kids are fighting colds: Thieves. When the oldest needs to study: Rosemary with Basil. And when it is time for bed: Lavender + Cedarwood.

Let me break down some of the benefits out these bedtime oils.

LAVENDER: Researchers found that lavender increased slow-wave sleep, the very deep slumber in which the heartbeat slows and muscles relax. Very calming and can be good for anxious feelings

CEDARWOOD: relaxing and soothing;  allows the brain to stop processing

Here are a few other great oils for sleep.

VALERIAN: calming to the nervous system and helps with restlessness

VALOR: balances the nervous system and helps strengthen the body and mind; increases feelings of strength, courage, and self-esteem; Can also be useful for snoring.

VETIVER: relaxes the nervous system and helps with over stimulation

ROMAN CHAMOMILE: has a warm, sweet, herbaceous scent that is relaxing and calming for both mind and body. Its gentleness makes it especially valuable for restless children.

PEACE AND CALMING: promotes relaxation and a deep sense of peace and emotional well-being: helps release negative emotions: wonderful for children

STRESS AWAY: brings feelings of peace and tranquility; helps to relive daily stress and anxious feelings; promotes relaxation; restores equilibrium

ORANGE: lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body; brings peace and happiness to the mind. It is rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene and aids in maintaining normal cellular regeneration.

Essential oils can be used both topically and through inhalation to improve the quality of sleep.

  1. The easiest way to receive the benefits of essential oils is through diffusing them.  I have a cute little home diffuser that came with my starter kit from Young Living Essential Oils.  It disperses the essential oils molecules into the air and allows you to inhale them.  The molecules of the essential oils are so small that they easily enter the olfactory nerves inside of your nose and into the limbic system, which is the seat of emotions in the body.  Diffuse oils 30-60 minutes before bedtime.
  2. If you do not have a diffuser, you can place a drop or 2 of essential oil in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, cup them around your nose and inhale deeply.  Do this for several minutes.  I have found this an effective way to use many of my sleep oils.
  3. You can also rub 1-2 drops of essential oils on the bottoms of your feet, shoulders,  back of your neck or stomach.  I often use a bit of carrier oil like coconut or jojoba to help it spread.
  4. Mix 3-6 drops of essential oil with epsom salt or baking soda and add to a hot bath water while tub is filling. Soak in bath for 20-30 minutes. 
  5. Rub 1-2 drops on the temples and back of neck several times a day.
  6. Place a warm compress with 1-2 drops of chosen oil on the back.



Please note that I am only talking about 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.  Only about 2% of essential oils sold are considered therapeutic grade.  There is no standard for EOs and so many of the oils you find may be adulterated and can actually contain harmful ingredients.

My essential oil of choice is Young Living Essential Oils. They own their farms and they run a very tight supply chain.  I trust their essential oils above all others because they are pure and unadulterated and are manufactured for therapeutic use not just for smell.

I am a wholesale member, meaning that I save 24% on all of my essential oils.  Becoming A Member

We also use YL’s Tranquil Roll-On : Tranquil Roll-On  is a proprietary blend of lavender, cedarwood and roman chamomile essential oils formulated to calm and relax the body and mind. Using the roll-on application , Tranquil provides convenient and portable relaxation.

And here is a little something for the moms that need help falling asleep; ImmuPro™ provides the benefits of natural immune-supporting Ningxia wolfberry polysaccharides in the convenience of a delicious fruit-flavored chewable supplement. Beta glucan has been shown in studies to enhance the immune system’s response and to help maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.* ImmuPro contains reishi and maitake mushrooms, which support the activity of antibodies and natural killer cells.* This formula is enhanced with calcium, zinc, selenium, and copper, all needed for proper immune function.* It has a small trace of melatonin.

Essential Oil Uses: Women


I get a lot of questions on what the purposes and/or uses are for certain oils, So I decided to start a 3-part series.  As Beyoncé once said “Who run the world? GIRLS!”  I found it only appropriate to start my series with Women. The 2nd series will be Men & the 3rd will be children.                                       Purchase Oils

I will start with my favorite oils & how I use them.

  • Lavender:  Loved for its calming, soothing fragrance. When diffused, Lavender adds a clean and fresh scent to any room. It is also a relaxing addition to body care products and baths. I like to diffuse after a long day at work, I usually mix it with Peace & Calming or Stress Away. It is GREAT to add to a bubble bath, add a few drops to your body lotion. I have to have Lavender available at all time! This is probably the one I go thru the quickest as well. Wholesale pricing for a 15ml bottle is $23 .
  • Peace & Calming II:  This is the 2nd version of the original Peace & Calming (which is usually always out of stock) The gentle aroma of Peace & Calming II includes Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, German Chamomile, Vetiver, Cistus, Bergamot, Cassia, Davana, and Young Living’s exclusive Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oils. This proprietary blend creates a relaxing and pleasant aroma when inhaled or diffused. Dilute ( I dilute with coconut oil)  and apply topically to moisturize and beautify the appearance of skin.
  • Stress Away: I mean, as a woman, this should be on your person at all time! This is not a drill! No really though, I have a travel size bottle at my desk at work, in my purse, in my car & at home. Young Living’s Stress Away™ essential oil blend is a natural solution created to combat normal stresses that creep into everyday life. Stress Away is the first product to contain the unique stress-relieving combination of lime and vanilla pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Stress Away also includes copaiba and lavender to reduce mental rigidity and restore equilibrium. Featuring powerful plant constituents, such as the cedrol found in cedarwood and the eugenol that occurs naturally in vanilla, Stress Away can help induce relaxation and reduce occasional nervous tension.*


Those are my top 3 oils for day-to-day use, when it is a long work/mommy day, I gravitate towards these 3.

Every woman is different, but women have a lot in common! So Let’s touch on the oils us as women would benefit from (I.E: Cramps, headaches, bedroom activities) You get the picture. 🙂


  • Dragon Time: What an appropriate name! Tee-Hee! Dragon Time™ is a blend of calming and soothing essential oils, including clary sage, which contains natural phytoestrogens – the perfect choice for women’s emotions during special times and needs. Its balancing properties make it a perfect choice for supporting normal, healthy emotions during the female monthly cycle. Dragon Time is recommended for young and mature women. You can rub 2-3 drops on your tummy & lower back for cramps, I recommend diluting 1 part oil 1 part oil of your preference (Coconut etc)
  • Sclaressence: Used for female hormonal support, energy balance, & women’s health, SclarEssence™ supports normal glandular functions.* It combines the soothing effects of peppermint with the balancing power of fennel and clary sage along with the gentle, calming action of sage lavender for an extraordinary dietary supplement. Do some research on this one; it may not be great for all women, * It helps balance female hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone.*

When diffused, Joy creates a warm, comforting environment and inspires a romantic aromatic atmosphere. Wear Joy as a cologne or perfume to exude an alluring and irresistible fragrance that inspires romance and togetherness.
  • Peppermint:Fresh, nostalgic, and instantly recognizable, Peppermint essential oil’s scent invigorates the mind and senses, while inspiring a sense of peace. Used topically, Peppermint oil creates a cool, tingling sensation on the skin. Great to use on the roof of your mouth throughout the day for a quick breath refresher!When your day is dragging—through a workout, class, or day at work—enjoy some Peppermint oil benefits by applying it to your head and neck. The refreshing aroma will give you a boost of positivity! Peppermint is also a great option for diffusing on its own or with compatible scents such as Lavender, Rosemary, Spearmint, or Sage!

With 2 children in the house & a hard working man who tracks in all kinds of stuff, there always seems to be a mess that needs to be cleaned up. Sticky spots on the counter. Juice stains on a shirt. Laundry to do. Food stain on the couch. Dirty handprints on the wall. Cups and toys that were left outside… You get the picture 😉

With so many things to clean, I don’t want to use chemical cleaners. I can’t tell you how many times my kids have dropped floor on the food & ate it. Also; quick fact: your feet are the most absorbent part of your body, you don’t want to be absorbing in these chemicals from floor cleaners. 🙈 I knew I wanted better!

And then I found Thieves Household Cleaner. 🙌 Got stains in the shower grout? Got stains on the carpet? Need a tough degreaser? Need hand soap? Thieves Household Cleaner will clean it all! AND smells amazing!

What is Thieves Household Cleaner?

It’s hard to believe, but this is truly an all-in-one natural cleaner that’s non-toxic, yet super effective.

It’s made with 100% plant- and mineral-based ingredients

Why It’s Economical:
Save time and money by buying one cleaning product. You won’t have to make trips to multiple stores or order from multiple online sources. Thieves Household Cleaner is an all-in-one cleaning product that will replace most of your household cleaners.
Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrate. For most all-purpose cleaning, dilute 30 parts of water to 1 part of Thieves Household Cleaner. That breaks down to one 64 oz bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner concentrate = about 128 all-purpose spray bottles (30 oz. each) for about 88 cents a bottle. That’s cheaper than most all-natural cleaners on the market.
