How a mom of 5 got a full night of sleep

by Kim St.Andre

My first experience with Young Living Essential oils came out of desperation. I needed sleep a full nights sleep! We had 3 teenagers at home and 2 little ones in diapers. Our youngest 2 had completely different sleeping schedules one would fall asleep early at night and wakeup before the crack of dawn while the other one was a night owl and liked to sleep in.

This would leave me exhausted during the day and in some kind of zombie state while trying to carpool around our older 3 kids.

I was with a group of women telling them about my lack of sleep and how much I craved more than 3 consecutive hours of shut eye time. One of them suggested Young Living Peace and Calming. She told me to mix it with oil and rub on the bottom of their feet before bed. I am not going to lie I was a bit skeptical of this little bottle of oil being capable of giving me such relief! 

The day my oil arrived I made a mixture of it with oil and put it in a jewel colored bottle after I bathed the kids I told them we were going to use a little magic potion on their feet. Soon after they just seemed really relaxed. Bed time was so easy that night!! To my surprise my skepticism was squashed they slept the ENTIRE night!!!

Now those 2 little ones are 11&12 and to this day whenever they smell Peace and Calming the talk about their "Magic Potion" at bath time. 
At this age we use it on nights before a big test at school or a big game it still works it's "magic" every time!

oh my gosh, I need to get me some of that! I'm a single mother and my almost 2 year old wakes around midnight every night to get into bed with me. Which is fine, until she wriggles around so much that I'm kicked out! Will definitely try this, sounds like you've had great results!

I have had great results with this oil another great one is Lavender. If you would like to see more about these oils you can find them all here 
Our youngest has always been that way too! I have been kicked and elbowed in the face many times! LOL  Oh the joys of Mommiehood 😀
