STEP 11 - KIDS' ROOM HACKS

While we’re letting Essential Oils work their magic in the master bedroom, let’s not forget the KIDS’ ROOMS.

Essential Oils are a natural way to calm the kiddos at night and freshen their rooms at any hour.

MONSTER SPRAY

Whether they’re under the bed or in the closet, monsters can severely dampen your child’s chances at getting a good night’s sleep.

And being called in to check for these monsters under the bed or in the closet can severely dampen YOUR chances of getting a good night’s sleep!

Why not let Essential Oils stand guard for you tonight? Attack them with this MONSTER SPRAY blend:

MONSTER FIGHTER BEDROOM SPRAY

• 10 drops Cedarwood Essential Oil

• 10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

• 10 drops Juniper Berry Essential Oil

Place Essential Oils in a 2 oz. spray bottle. Top with water. Shake, and spray around room and in typical monster hiding places.

TIP: One way to empower your child is to let him or her in on creating the monster spray blend. By letting even preschool-aged children put oil drops in the spray bottle or even tweak the recipe with their own favorite oils, you are letting them manage their fear instead of managing it for them.

SCENTED STUFFIES

Does your child have trouble settling down at night? If so, he or she might fight the routine of putting calming oils on the bottoms of their feet or the back of the neck.

But one thing they won’t want to sleep without is their favorite stuffed animal or blanket.

Put a couple of drops of your child’s favorite calming oil on his or her stuffed animal or blanket. Make sure you test in an inconspicuous place first to make sure the oil won’t ruin the fabric. Or create a Sleepy Spray (similar to the Monster Spray above) and spritz on stuffed animals or bedding.

Some oils that promote a restful night’s sleep include Lavender, Lavender Peace Restful Blend, Roman Chamomile, Cedarwood, and Marjoram. Try a drop or two of any of these or a combination.

DIAPER PAIL FRESHENER

Nothing ruins a peaceful, sleepy atmosphere like a big whiff of nasty! We’ll talk about an odor-neutralizing recipe for trash cans later. But first, here’s a baby-friendly variation that has the added benefit of including Lavender Essential Oil, which can help soothe, calm, and promote restful sleep.

DAZZLING DIAPER PAIL RECIPE

• 1 tbsp. Baking Soda

• 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Mix together and sprinkle in diaper pail.
