Hey Mama, do you have little ones that need a little extra support getting to sleep? What about yourself? I usually don’t have too much trouble myself. I think it is a gift that comes with being a midwife, but every once in a while I do need a little support to help my body unwind and turn my brain off to be able to really fall asleep, especially after a birth. In my digital guide Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth, and Babies, you can find that on my website at theessentialmidewife.com. You will find all my sleep diffuser blends. Like the ones for an anxious sleeper, one for a restless sleeper, one who wakes up a lot, one for the light sleeper. I have all of my blends in that digital guide. When nothing else works one of my favorite sleep combos is called the Dream Catcher. It’s for kids or adults who just need a little extra support getting to sleep and staying to sleep.
10 drops Juniper Berry
5 Ylang Ylant
Put in 10mL roller bottle and fill to the top with fractionated coconut oil
For your babies, just half all of those drops. Yes, this blend is totally safe in pregnancy and while you are breastfeeding. Which blends or which oils work best for you when you’re trying to get to sleep? Keep in mind that what works for one, doesn’t necessarily work for another. I have 3 granddaughters in Georgia and 2 of them respond really well to Lavender or Serenity, but my other granddaughter, that would make her stay up till midnight. So she uses Petitgrain and when she does, she is out in five minutes. There are lots of oils in that category to choose from, which ones work best for you?
