DIY OK For Kids Sound Asleep Spray

September 08, 2016

We’ve been asked a lot about the difference between Ok For Kids Sleepy Time 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 Time

Ok For Kids Sleepy Time 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 Time 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 lullabye. 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!

    My granddaughters love to use the Sound Asleep roll on at bedtime, rolling it on soles of feet, wrists, behind ears. I just ordered the 30 oz. bottle and thought I would use it in my small roll on bottles. Do I need to dilute it and if so, what do I use?

    Hi Amanda! There are a couple of reasons why our OK For Kids roll-ons are diluted at a higher percentage. The main reason is that a higher dilution rate is safe for spot treatment, and roll-ons are generally used for spot treatment. Here is a link with more info on the subject:

    Sound Asleep has been wonderful for my 2 year old. I am a bit confused on what dilution to use… your pre-made roller says its diluted to 5%, but the bottle (and the amount safe for children) says to dilute to 1%? I am worried about using too much! Thank you

    Hi Margaret! Grain alcohol acts as an emulsifier and preservative, so you would need an emulsifier like Polysorbate 20 and a preservative such as Liquid Germall Plus. You can learn more about this here:
