Rollin’ Into a Good Night’s Sleep

Over the years we’ve developed a pretty solid nightly routine for our girls. They get a warm bath, put on their PJs, brush hair and teeth, join us in the family room for a read aloud, and then crawl into bed with all the lovies they can cram between the sheets with them. 

Part of that nightly routine includes choosing their favorite essential oils to roll-on before closing their eyes. 

Sometimes we use our favorite pre-made rollers like Thieves, Tranquil, or the ever popular Peace & Calming. We’ve even popped a roller top on our Lavender and used that.

Other times we get creative and make up our own recipes. It’s easy and the kids love counting the drops as they add them to the roller. 

We like to use an empty essential oil bottle (always keep them, they come in handy) and pop a roller fitment to the top. Another option is to find cute rollers on Etsy, which also make cute gifts.

Each of my girls has their own blend they can apply on their wrists, behind their ears, or on the vita flex points on their feet before going to bed.

A few of our current favorite roller recipes are:

Sweet Dreams

  • 4 drops KidPower
  • 3 drops Frankincense
  • 3 drops Tangerine
  • Top off with your favorite carrier oil (ex. Young Living V-6 oil or Coconut Oil)

Sleep Tight 

  • 5 drops Lavender
  • 4 drops Peace & Calming
  • 2  drops Tangerine
  • Top off with your favorite carrier oil (ex. Young Living V-6 oil or Coconut Oil)

Deep Breaths

  • 4 drops Lavender
  • 3 drops Lemon
  • 3 drops R.C.
  • Top off with your favorite carrier oil (ex. Young Living V-6 oil or Coconut Oil)

I encourage you to give a few of these a try or make up your own. In no time, your little ones will be off to dream land too.
