We only have one diffuser at home right now. Cody and I each have one in our offices at work but our house is small and we are all usually all in one room together until bedtime so it’s not necessary to have multiple. Yet.
At night, we usually diffuse in our room and our magic sleep combination to diffuse is Lavender and Cedarwood. I use 4 drops of Lavender and 2 drops of Cedarwood and it’s just right to help us sleep throughout the night without nightmares or waking up. So what do I do for my two-year-old?
Easy. I made a roller for his feet! Let’s back up. My little one is a good sleeper. He falls asleep easily and sleeps through the night. He usually sleeps until right around 7:00 a.m. (I know, right?!) and he wakes up happy most mornings. There are occasional mornings that he wakes up early or gets woken up by us moving through the house and he wakes up cranky. When I use the sleepy roller on his feet before bed, though, he consistently sleeps until at least 7:00 a.m. and wakes up happy and well-rested. (I have read testimonies where this combination of oils helps even the worst sleeper – both kid and adult! Try it!)
So what’s the recipe? I’m so glad you asked!
Grab a roller container. I use an empty 15 mL lavender bottle with a roller top from Young Living. It fits perfectly (not pictured because it’s on my son’s changing table :))! Add about 50 drops of Lavender and 50 drops of Cedarwood. Then I add about 100 drops of sunflower seed oil. Grape seed is also a great option. Heck, use olive oil if that’s all you have! You really can’t mess up!
At bedtime, roll on this mixture on the bottoms of your littles’ feet. Then use your hands to really rub it in. My son likes for me to put the bottoms of his feet together and rub. It tickles and he loves it!
Try this mixture on your littles! Try it on yourself! I’ve used it and it’s great!

It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
