DIY OK For Kids Sound Asleep Spray

DIY OK For Kids Sound Asleep Spray

We’ve been asked a lot about the difference between OK For Kids Sleepy Head and Sound Asleep blends. To put it simply, the difference is in the aroma. Each blend is intended to help your child fall asleep, stay asleep and awake feeling well rested. So what’s the difference?

Sleepy Head

OK For Kids Sleepy Head is most effective when paired with a good bedtime story. For Sleepy Time, you might choose a classic like Peter Pan. This blend is earthy, grounding and yet, sweet. Lavender, Cedarwood, Frankincense and Petitgrain are standout characters in this harmonious blend and will send your child off into Neverland, dreaming of adventure, pirates, mermaids and all things magical. The aroma of this unchanging blend is sure to become a nostalgic memory, and will leave some wishing they never grew up.

Sound Asleep

If Sleepy Head is best paired with a story like Peter Pan, OK For Kids Sound Asleep is most relaxing when snuggling up with a timeless tale like Sleeping Beauty. This blend is beautiful, sweet and soft like a lullaby. The aroma of floral Damiana and luxurious Osmanthus work together in the most romantic of ways. As you and your child fall in love with this blend, sweet dreams are sure to follow closely behind.

DIY Sound Asleep Spray

OK For Kids Sound Asleep blend has a way of eliciting thoughts of soft clouds, comfy beds, cozy blankets, warm fireplaces and fluffy sheep. Which is why one of our favorite ways to use this blend is by combining some of these sleep-inducing elements and creating Sound Asleep Spray. This recipe is the stuff dreams are made of and can be used on blankets, pillows, stuffed animals and PJs. We also feel it’s our responsibility to disclose that this recipe may cause good dreams, deep sleep, a sense of relaxation and feeling well-rested in the morning. Enjoy!

2 oz Witch Hazel

30 drops OK For Kids Sound Asleep

Hi Kelli! 190 proof (grain) alcohol is the preferred proof for properly preserving and dispersing essential oils in a water based substance. However, you can use a slightly lower proof if it is available to you. Another option would be to use a solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 (to disperse the oil in water) and a broad spectrum preservative.

Why do you use for grain alcohol? If it’s what I think it is, it’s illegal in my state.

Hi Alicia! Grain alcohol solubilizes the oils in water, or evenly disperses it, while also preserving the product.

Hi Cat! We don’t recommend using essential oils on/ around children younger than 2, as we want to err on the side of extreme caution when it comes to little ones.

Are any or all, including the regular line of blends, OK to diffuse in a baby’s room?
