Restful sleep is important for everyone but especially kiddos, and as a mama of a little one I definitely want to make sure he gets good quality sleep. Thankfully essential oils can be very calming and relaxing so they are a great addition to your child’s (or your own) nighttime routine)

This cream is so easy to make and easy to use. It’s basically just a base of coconut oil with a mix of essential oils that may help to promote relaxation. I like to make a cream for several reasons – mixing the oils in the cream stretches them so that instead of using a drop of each one every night you are just using a fraction of a drop at a time and saves you money; plus having the cream pre-mixed saves you from having to open multiple bottles of oil each night.
DIY sleep cream recipe
Whip the coconut oil in a mixer (or with fork if you want to get your arm workout in for the day). Add oils and mix together.
Store the mixture in a glass jar (a 4 oz Mason jelly jar works perfectly)
Rub a little of the cream on your feet before bed to help you relax and rest easy.
Note 1: Peace & Calming can have the opposite effect for some people and make them feel energized rather than relaxed. If that is the case for you then leave it out. I put it in mine because it doesn’t seem to bother Hudson or me, but I usually leave it out when I mix a sample for someone else just in case
Note 2: This recipe is SUPER flexible! Don’t have Valor? Leave it out. Have some vetiver you want to use? Add that in! You can’t really do it wrong.
