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!

Hi Amy! We recommend 190-proof grain alcohol. Alternatively, you can use a solubilizer such as Polysorbate 20 and a preservative such as Leucidal Liquid. For additional formulating assistance, please contact our aromatherapist at

I see a lot of your DIY’s call for grain alcohol. Is there a specific kind or proof you recommend? Also, this is mostly illegal in my state. What would you recommend as a substitute? Thank you!
