Peace and Calming Essential Oil

When I was contemplating buying the Everyday Oils Kit , probably my number one reason was to use them to help with sleep. For the last eight years, my husband and I have had interrupted sleep on a nightly basis due to our sweet and adorable sons! Our oldest son Keith was a terrible sleeper from the very beginning and our youngest son Braedon slept well for about two months and then followed very closely in his brother's footsteps! Keith finally started sleeping through the night when he was four but by that point, Braedon was only one and not sleeping through the night so there was no reprieve! Braedon was 4 1/2 when we started using oils and still waking us up on average, 2-4 times a night. I was pretty desperate for something to help. We had tried everything it seemed - frequent chiropractor visits, lavender (from Whole Foods - NOT Young Living) massage, rewards for sleeping through, different beds. Finally we started using Melatonin to help him get to sleep (we used this for Keith as well because he struggled greatly with going to sleep) which was effective in that way but it did nothing to keep him from waking during the night. We continued to use Melatonin because it at least helped both of our kids get to sleep at night but I frequently worried that continued use was not good. One night my youngest son accidentally took double the dosage that I intended and I frantically hopped online to research if it was dangerous and what course of action I needed to take! When the friend who introduced me to oils told me that Peace and Calming had helped her get off of OTC sleep meds, I had a glimmer of hope ignite!

So, with some hesitation I bought the Everyday Oils Kit - not knowing if the investment was going to be worth it. At this point however, we were so exhausted, even a possibility of hope was worth the risk! The day I received my oils, I was so excited to put them to the test! I remember clearly waking up in the middle of the night and realizing Braedon hadn't woken us up at all! I almost started crying at 2 in the morning because I was so happy! Keith slept until after 7 in the morning (which didn't ever happen - he would consistently be awake by 5:30 or 6). Such a blessing!!

Needless to say, we ran out of Peace and Calming far too quickly! Both of our boys started sleeping significantly better immediately with the use of oils (I'll talk about some of the other amazing sleepy-time oils in another post) and if nothing else, the $150 Everyday Oils Kit was worth every penny even if this was the only improvement we saw (which of course it wasn't!). More on some of those other amazing oils later...
