  1. I have a 19th month child and he does not sleep through the night sleeps for an hour and then wakes and during the day he does not sleep well and I was just wandering is there oils to help him I have tried everything but to no avail please help

    • Hi @Bianca Sofia, thanks for writing to us. I am so sorry to hear your son does not sleep well, but am happy to help. While essential oils can be a great tool, they may not help your son’s sleep if there are other sleep issues going on that need to be resolved.

  2. I knew lavender essential oil was good for sleep, I used it myself to get some better rest. Although this like it is amazing advice for anyone with an infant! I especially like the bath idea, I might just try that for myself too!

    • @Carrie – Thank you so much for stopping by our sleepy little village and for your comment. Please keep reading and let us know how it works for you! 🙂

  3. I’m pretty sure eucalyptus and peppermint are not safe for babies:children. (Think Vick’s vapor rub issue). It causes them great harm. I’d look that up before using g those oils on my child.

  4. Hi. I am new to oils but I wanted to try some to help my 11 month old baby sleep with her bad cold.

    I wanted to try lavender oil and eucalyptus oil together (I was told I can put the oils onto a used Calpol plug in pad to get it in the air to help her breathe). Do i need to use a carrier oil for that or can I just use the oils themselves if it is not touching her skin?


    • @Laura – Thank you for reading our post! In my personal experience with oils, you would want to use a carrier oil if applying directly to the skin or if you’re using it to spread in the air like with an air diffuser to help preserve and conserve the oils. If you’re dripping a drop or two onto a pad for plugging in, then you would likely not need a carrier oil for this. Again, this is from my personal experience with using pure essential oils with my own children so you may want to run that by your daughter’s healthcare provider as well for their suggestions. I hope this is helpful, Laura, and I thank you for visiting our sleepy little village. Please come back soon!

  5. Did you dilute the oils? If so, what was your ratio?

    • @ Sylvia – Yes, I believe you dilute one or two drops (depending on child’s age) in 1-2 Tablespoons of carrier oil. You can always try a greater dilution ration (maybe 1 drop to 2 Tbs oil) and then tweak it depending on how your child responds).

      Thanks for your question, and best of luck to you and to your family!

  6. I absolutely believe that essential oils work. I made a sleep salve for my son and it really helped him to relax and get to sleep faster. I just rubbed some on his feet. It worked so well I gave some to my friend who has a very difficult time sleeping and she was able to stop taking sleep meds because of it. The power of nature is an amazing thing.

    • @ Suzanne – awesome, thanks so much for telling us about your experience!

    • How did you make your sleep salve?
