Essential Oils & Sleep

Finding peaceful sleep in our busy lives can be challenging. However, nature offers a solution: essential oils. Lavender and cedarwood essential oils are known for their calming effects, and combining them in a diffuser can help you unwind and sleep better.

In this guide, we’ll explore the science behind these oils, provide step-by-step instructions for creating a diffuser blend, and provide links for essential oils, roller bottles, starter kits, and diffusers.

The Science Behind Essential Oils and Sleep

  1. Lavender Essential Oil:
    • Calming aroma that relaxes.
    • Reduces heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol levels.
  2. Cedarwood Essential Oil:
    • Warm, woody scent with sedative properties.
    • May stimulate serotonin release for mood regulation and sleep.

Creating the Perfect Diffuser Blend


  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • Ultrasonic Diffuser
    Mix and match items in your shopping cart to fit your needs! I ordered the diffuser + oils kit almost 10 years ago and have been using them ever since! These diffusers come with a 1 year warranty (unlike other brands!) but mine have lasted much longer than just a year!


  1. Choose Your Diffuser:
    • Select a high-quality ultrasonic diffuser.
    • Find options [here](insert your affiliate link).
  2. Add Water:
    • Follow manufacturer’s guidelines for water level.
  3. Add Oils:
    • Add 5-7 drops of lavender oil.
    • Add 3-5 drops of cedarwood oil.
  4. Set the Mood:
    • Run diffuser 30-60 minutes before bedtime.
  5. Customize Your Blend:
    • Adjust oil ratios to your preference.

Benefits of Lavender and Cedarwood Diffusion

  1. Relaxation:
    • Combined aromas induce relaxation.
    • Eases stress and anxiety.
  2. Enhanced Sleep Quality:
    • Promotes a deeper sleep cycle.
  3. Mind-Body Harmony:
    • Aromatic experience aligns mind and body.
  4. Uninterrupted Sleep:
    • Cedarwood’s sedative nature reduces awakenings.

Prioritizing restful sleep is crucial. Lavender and cedarwood essential oils, when diffused together, provide a gentle remedy. Incorporating this blend into your bedtime routine creates a sleep haven, reducing stress and promoting rejuvenating sleep. Listen to your body’s reactions and adjust the blend as needed. Explore essential oils, roller bottles, starter kits, and diffuser options to kickstart your journey to serenity.

Top 6 Favorites for Winter Wellness

I am so grateful to have all of our favorites on hand for the upcoming winter season! I start stocking up early just in case some go out of stock! Here’s are our family’s favorite products for winter:

1. RC and Raven

These 2 essential oils are very similar — both support our respiratory system! I prefer the scent of Raven to diffuse (love the lemon!) and keep RC on hand to mix with a carrier and rub on the kid’s chests and feet as needed.

2. DIY Chest Rub and/or Thieves Chest Rub

When I started using YL years ago, there wasn’t a chest rub option so we made our own! Here’s the recipe. Now YL has an option that is so much easier to use on the go!

3. Super C Chewable and Vitamin D (sourced and made with top ingredient and our very own essential oils!)

4. NingXia Red is YL’s  whole-body supplement. This sweet and tangy drink includes wolfberry, which is touted for its health benefits. NingXia Red is packed with superfoods to support overall wellness. The benefits of NingXia Red include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants.

5. Thieves – we use them all!

  • Thieves Cough Drops (as needed)
  • Thieves Essential Oil (diffuser)
  • Thieves Foaming Hand Soap (in kitchen and bathrooms)
  • Thieves Cleaner (to clean bathrooms and kitchens)
  • Thieves Hand Sanitizer

For most of these Thieves items, check out the Thieves Kit!

6. Breathe Again (roll-on) – Breathe Again is a supercharged version of R.C. blend I use to get my nose feeling back to normal! It is so easy to roll on my chest to help me breathe easier in my chest and through my nose!

DIY Chest Rub

If you’d like a soothing and petroleum-free version of the classic cough and cold soother, try this recipe! We’ve been using it over six years and keep it on hand every winter! If you prefer a ready made version, check out YL’s Chest Rub!

It is super easy to make! All you need is:

Lemon and Peppermint come in this starter kit with a diffuser!

Menu Planner

Hi, friends!!

I’m loving this meal planner for our family — it is saving me so much time in the kitchen! I’ll sit down every Thursday or Friday and fill it in for the following week. It is laminated and easy to wipe clean to reuse each week.


I start by checking
– the freezer for protein or frozen veggies,
– the pantry for ingredients for sides,
– and the fridge for any fresh veggies/fruit we need to use right away!

Then I made write in meal ideas and make my shopping list!

I just took a MS template and edited it a bit to fit our needs. This summer I’m using it as a list of meal ideas — many meals we will choose from the list, then cross off the meal after it is all gone!

I hope this helps you too!

— Dayna

DIY Play Dough with Essential Oils

We have been home SO long and needed something new to make together! So this morning the kids and I made this DIY Play Dough that I found on the Young Living Blog — and it was SO easy!

I remember my mom making it with my brothers and I when I was little! She would double the recipe so that there was plenty. This recipe is enough for 3 children to each have a ball of dough.

The kids loved getting to choose any scent from our starter kit — Abbey chose Lavender (purple bottle), Jared chose Citrus Fresh (he loves how it smells!) and I chose Peace and Calming for Colby (because he woke up a bit grumpy today!)

The only ingredient you might not have on hand is the Cream of Tarter!

DIY play dough essential oils

The kids got to choose from 12 oils in this starter kit and some other ways we use them in our family! After trying another brand of essential oils, my Abbey broke out in a rash. So we found Young Living, I learned how they plant, harvest, and distill without adding any fillers — and our family has been using them for almost SIX years!

Here are our favorite roller bottles with the oils in our starter kit. There are SO many uses and DIY options!
