With school starting back I am finding it hard to get my girls to bed. They got so use to staying up later during the summer and are usually pretty wired around bed time. That is when I thought it might be a cool idea to make some fun bath boms to help them go to sleep.
My friend Kandi over at doTerra sent me a sampling of different oils a while back and told me how the Lavender oil helps to relax the body and should help them go to sleep. So the way I figure it, is right before bed I will give the girls a bath and let them put their bath boms in, which they will think is super cool since they made them and BAM they will get tired and go to bed.
Okay I know it wont quite happen like that but you have to aim high. The girls had so much fun making the bath boms, that I think we will have to make them again. Since our soap mold had so many different shapes on it we colored the bath boms to match the animal we were making. You just have to use different food color to do that. The cat we did purple since we were doing the lavender sent, however my little one used a bit too much blue color so it is REALLY dark. Keep in mind that the more color you use the more colorful your bath will be.
My conclusion, is that the bath boms helped them go to sleep faster than normal. They still wanted to play some and did not pass out right away, but it did seem to me that they calmed down faster than normal and went to bed easier than normal. Let us know how it works for your kids!
