This is how excited we are in our household. Fist-bumping, shouting from the rooftops, and dancing a jig are just a few things you’d see if you peaked in our windows first thing in the morning. Eureka! Woo hoo! Outstanding!
It is happening people. The stuff WORKS!
I was skeptical. Why? Well, we’ve been living a crazy little life with our littlest. He’s a ball of energy to say the least. For the past several months (could be 4, could be 8…it all runs together), he’s been getting up around 7ish in the morning.
No matter what time he went to bed. We tried later bedtime, naps, no naps, rest time, different snacks before bed, milk before bed, no milk before bed…we seriously tried it all.
I don’t know how things in your house work but we are NOT 7am people.
Now, we hated having to put the kids to bed as early as 7am but they needed their sleep. Napping hasn’t happened much in our house in over a year. Once in a while it will but there is an issue with it. It creates some kind of time-warp where they nap for an hour but stay awake for 2 or 3 later in the evening.
So, we started looking. I heard about essential oils a while back and tried them for something else (you can read more here). I didn’t really know if rubbing an oil on your feet, temples, lower back, or earlobe would work. Once you are exhausted I think you’ll try anything!
We welcomed with open arms the lavender/lemon combo and we’ve grown to love them.
Seriously. A drop of lavender followed by a drop of lemon on each foot! Follow with socks and eureka!
830am three days in a row!! This from the child that wakes at 7am-ish no matter what time he goes to bed.
I am in heaven.
Forget Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I’m putting this on everything! <—- tweet
Sidenote :: I’m sure you know by now that I don’t have a PhD. Therefore, I’m no doctor. This is one of the ways we use essential oils in our house. I vote you give it a try but definitely don’t go off any kind of medication. Also note that drug store essential oils are different than doTerra oils. Definitely don’t ingest any essential oil that is not a certified pure, therapeutic grade essential oil.
