Top 5 Essential Oils for Sleep

Are you tired and not sleeping through the night. I’ve gone through many sleepless nights, especially when my babies were infants. I learned tools to help myself go to sleep and stay asleep!

There is no tired like a exhausted mom, just like there is nothing more important to keeping our bodies in check than SLEEP. If we aren’t getting adequate sleep and rest our bodies begin to shut down. Even if you aren’t a mama, sleep allows our bodies and mind to recharge and gives us the downtime that we need for balancing our bodies.

We often find ourselves caught in what seems like a lose-lose situation – mamas need sleep, but the family needs the mamas.

How can essential oils help to support your sleep?

Let me introduce you to my favorites for your family…


doTERRA SERENITY– The essential oils in this must-have blend were meticulously chosen to Essential Oils for Sleeplessen feelings of tension, calm emotions, and leave a peaceful feeling. Serenity is the perfect blend to diffuse at bedtime for a restful night’s sleep, to calm a restless baby or child, or to help reduce the worry and stress so many of us feel. Add this oil to your petal or aromalite diffuser at night. You can also put a drop in your hand if you wake up in them middle of the night.

LAVENDER offers a light floral scent with calming esters that whisk the body and mind into tranquility. Massage it into your pulse points and the bottoms of your feet, diffuse, or take an Epsom salt bath before bedtime to release tension and promote peace and calm. Safe for babies from 6 mos of age when diluted to adults, Lavender is the best first line of defense against insomnia. Use the doTERRA TOUCH oil for your kids under six years old. You can roll along the spine or on the bottoms of the feet.

ROMAN CHAMOMILE provides full body relaxation and enhances drowsiness to allow the body to wind down. Simply inhaling it decreases stress and increases calm. Safe for babies from 6 mos of age when diluted to adults, Roman Chamomile works well when applied to pulse points, diffused, or in an Epsom Salt bath before bedtime. Adults can put one to two drops and massage on the big toes which is your pineal gland pressure point.

VETIVER enables the body to find calm and grounds the emotions to allow for relaxation. When applied before bedtime, it can calm the nervous system and support the immune system as well while ridding you of unwanted anxiety and stress. Safe for kiddos when diluted but usually reserved for teens and adults due to its deep, rich, exotic aroma that some children may not enjoy. This is one plant that instantly makes me calm. I leave vetiver by my bed side so that I can put one drop on my temples or in the palm of my hands and hold my thumbs which are the brain pressure point. 

CEDARWOOD – I love this oil in my kids diffuser. It is a calming woody scent that reminds me of relaxing in the woods.  I rub 1-2 drops on the bottoms of my feet before bedtime for a solid night’s sleep. Cedarwood has a calming and soothing effect on the mind. Add two drops of cedarwood and lavender for a restful sleep.

How about a little BONUS?

Here are 3 Tips for using these oils with your family >>

Roman Chamomile and Lavender diluted and layered help to prevent and ease temper tantrums.

Vetiver has been found effective at supporting focus for kids and adults with over active mind or high energy.

– Diffusing three of these oils together creates a powerful relaxation blend to combat insomnia.
