LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL...A REMEDY FOR MOMS WITH LITTLE ONES





For all you moms who have little ones who just don't want to go to sleep when you want them to, I found a few remedies from the Soap Dish Forums that other moms have had success with using Lavender Essential Oil.

1.) Add a little bit to your little one's blanket during the rinse cycle

2.) Add a few drops to their bath

3.) Make a small "Lavender Dream Pillow" to put in their pillow case

For a good night sleep or just to relax, you take the seeds and flowers of the plant and add it to your pillow. For a good bedtime drink, steep the seeds and flowers of the Lavender plant in water for about 15 to 30 minutes, then add a cup of boiling water.
I absolutely love the scent of Lavender. We actually sell some of our products in this particular type of scent. Who doesn't love Lavender???
