Insomnia In Children

Insomnia In ChildrenIs your child having problems sleeping? Sleep is important to heal and repair the body. But sometimes it’s hard to get our child to sleep.

Children suffer from insomnia if they are overtired, fearful or worried about an event, or sometimes for no apparent reason.

Try to work out why your child is having trouble sleeping and follow one of the suggestions below.

Overtired and Strung-Out Blend

The lavender and chamomile oils combine to soothe on many different levels.

2 tsp. (10 mL) sweet almond oil

1 drop lavender essential oil

1 drop Roman chamomile essential oil

In a 1/3 oz. (10 mL) glass dropper bottle, combine the almond oil and the essential oils.

Shake to blend

 

Treatment:

Massage and bath: Massage half of the Overtired Blend into child’s skin. Then give child a warm bath. After the bath, put the little one to bed in a dimly lit room and massage remainder of oil into his or her arms and torso.

Tip: Do not add essential oils to the tub while the water is running, as some of the precious essences may evaporate, depriving you of the full benefits.

 

Monster Spray

The oils in this spray will help to allay fears and assist in bringing sound sleep. Marjoram is effective for anxiety, agitation and insomnia. Roman Chamomile and lavender are soothing and comforting for the nerves. Wild Orange’s sweet floral aroma is uplifting and has a tonic effect on the digestive system.

1 tsp. (5 mL) lavender hydrosol

4 drops lavender essential oil

4 drops wild orange essential oil

2 drops Roman chamomile essential oil

2 drops marjoram essential oil

Distilled or filtered water

In a 4 oz. (125 mL) PET plastic spray bottle, combine lavender hydrolsol and essential oils. Fill bottle with water. Shake well before using.

Variation:

In a 4 oz. (125 mL) PET plastic spray bottle, combine 48 drops Solubol and Monster Spray Blend. Once they are mixed, fill the bottle with distilled or filtered water.

 

Treatment:

Surface Spray: Lightly spray your child’s pillow and the floor around the bed or closet (wherever the monsters hide). While you are spraying, tell the child that this spray gets rid of monsters.

 

Achy and Grumpy Blend

This blend is for children over 5 years of age who have overextended themselves emotionally and physically and may need to calm down before bedtime.

5 drops lavender essential oil

5 drops wild orange essential oil

3 drops rosemary essential

2 drops Roman chamomile essential oil

In a 1/6 oz. (5 mL) glass dropper bottle, combine essential oils.

Shake to blend

 

Treatments

Bath: Fill tub with warm water. Meanwhile, in a small non-reactive bowl, combine the age-appropriate number of drops of Achy and Grumpy Blend and 1 tsp. (5 mL) milk or liquid castile soap. Add to tub and agitate to disperse. Place child in the bath to soak for 10 to 15 minutes while you massage his or her limbs. Try to keep the child calm.

Tip: Do not add essential oils to the tub while the water is running, as some of the precious essences may evaporate, depriving you of the full benefits.

Massage: In a small non-reactive bowl, combine the age-appropriate number of drops of Achy and Grumpy Blend and 1 tsp. (5 mL) sweet almond oil. Mix well.   Pour a little of the mixture onto the palm of your hand and massage over child’s body after showering or bathing. Massage child’s back, legs, or whatever aches the most.
