Getting better quality sleep is a huge problem affecting over 60 million Americans and of that number over 2 million are children. This equates to 30-40% of children not getting enough sleep.

There are many factors that contribute to this lack of sleep such as sleep apnea which my husband was diagnosed with several years ago and uses a C-Pap while he sleeps. This was a game changer for him.

My son was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea at 16 months which caused him to stop breathing at night so he required immediate surgery and has been wonderful ever since.

While some people may need surgery or a C-Pap to sleep well at night, others actually have trouble falling or staying asleep or suffer from conditions like Restless Legs Syndrome. Many of these sleep disorders can be helped by using essential oils. Here’s a medical study.

You may be asking yourself, “do essential oils really help you sleep?”

Essential oils have been used going back to ancient times and are gaining favor in the sight of the medical community in recent years. Many traditional hospitals are even using essential oils as part of their treatments and patient care. (Source – MayoClinic)

And helping adults and children get a most restful night’s sleep is one of the most popular ways to use the practice of aromatherapy.

In this post, you’ll find a list of amazing essential oils for sleep recipes you can use in your diffuser as aromatherapy. If you’d prefer not to use a diffuser, you can simply turn these diffuser recipes into roller bottles.

To do that, simply fill up a 5 ml roller bottle (double recipe if using a 10 ml bottle) halfway with a good carrier oil and add the essential oil drops. Then fill up the rest of the way with your carrier oil.

Roll on your roller bottle before bed on your chest, back of the neck and behind ears. I do this for my toddler every night before bed to help him calm down and sleep easier.

Each of these essential oil blends work great for sleep and anxiety, working to calm you down and feel more grounded and relaxed. Let’s start with the best diffuser recipes for sleep:
