As parents we know first hand how vital it is for our children to sleep well.
Not only is it incredibly important in helping them grow and develop, but as adults we need our kids to go to sleep – and sleep well – to enable us to re-charge our own grown-up batteries.
There is certainly not a one-fits-all approach when it comes to the amount of sleep your child should be getting as everyone has different sleep needs. However, the Sleep Heath Foundation offers the following guidelines:
But what happens if your child is having issues going to – and staying – asleep?
What if you’ve got a regular bedtime routine in place, your child’s bedroom is an optimal sleep environment, and you’ve even been to the GP to rule out any illness.
What if you’ve tried reward charts and pop-ins and night lights and comforters – but despite all this you still dread putting your child to bed at night.

How to use SLEEP..........
Simply apply to the soles of your child’s feet 20 minutes before bedtime, as well as on pulse points if required.
We apply to the soles of the feet as they have much larger pores than the rest of our body. This means that within 22 seconds of application the molecules of the essential oils reach the brain, within 2 minutes they will be found in the bloodstream & within 22 minutes they will effect every cell in the body.
Each 10ml roller bottle has approximately 180 drops which should last you around 3 months.
