When ever my husband has to go away on a long business trip I can never seem to fall asleep without him. I have tried all the different sleep techniques and unfortunately they never helped me. My massage therapist told me to start putting on lavender oil to help get me relaxed enough to fall asleep and at that point I was up for trying anything to help me sleep. My friend loves essential oils and told me I could make up a sleepy time lotion with stuff she has around her house, so of course I tried it. I was shocked how well this lotion worked for me and so I wanted to share the recipe for Sleepy Time Lotion with all of you!
I am not saying you will put it on then boom you are asleep, but I now put it on every night before I read my book and I am able to fall asleep before midnight! The coconut oil is also great for your skin.
This would be a great gift for any mother on mother’s day!
