If you are looking for a new nighttime essential oil blend for sleep you are going to love this. One of my favorite things to talk about is helping kids sleep better. After having my first baby who developed really awful sleeping habits (all of which were my fault) and a second who has been sleeping soundly since infancy, I know a trick or two.
I’ve been using the power of essential oils to help them rest and relax for a few years and here is a new blend I created recently.
DIY Goodnight Blend
This is so easy to make, so if you’ve never made a blend before, don’t be nervous. The oils I’m using for this are Lavender, Peace & Calming and Frankincense. Besides those, you’ll also need a carrier oil (I used grapeseed oil) a roller bottle and a plastic pipette.
Fill your roller bottle with carrier oil about a 2/3 of the way full, then start adding in your oils. To do this I take the top off and use my pipette to draw the correct amount out. You will use:
- 3 drops of Frankincense (this oils helps alleviate nervous energy)
- 5 drops of Peace & Calming (like it’s name suggests, this is very calming and promotes rest)
- 5 drops of Lavender (helps you to relax and unwind)
Put the top back on the bottle and shake it up!

I wasn’t quite sure how this would smell because I hadn’t used these three together before but it smells SO good. I just love it. It’s a really relaxing scent. At bedtime I’m putting this on the bottoms of the kids feet and also a little on the back of their necks.
