Lavender essential oil for helping child relax and sleep?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello.

We have a 3 yr old DD that has a hard time relaxing and sleeping.

She also gets VERY revved up from a bath. And so we are finding that we cannot bath her before bed and get her to sleep at a good time.

This means that we either have to forgo a bath or forgo sleep.

We end up only bathing her on the weekend and once during the week and spot cleaning her other times.

We would like a couple of things.

1) to bathe her more often as she is 3 and active and gets dirty

2) help her relax and sleep

 

So we were thinking that lavender oil in a bath may help her relax.

 

Is this safe for a 3 yr old?

Do I just add two drops to her bath water?

We are pretty sure she has seasonal allergies, as she is stuffy and sneezy with itchy eyes in the late summer and autumn, will lavender oil make this worst?

 

Thanks you.
