  1. We tried lavender and cedarwood for our babes to help with getting a calm nights sleep, but they had nightmares and very restless. The nightmares were so real they had a hard time shaking them off the next morning.

    I was concerned yesterday. Poor baby couldn’t shake off the nightmares. She was crying at breakfast. So, I was guided to try Valor or Vetiver last night, which I already use with the babes to help them thru their day! Needless to say, this morning she was happy and giggling, talking about her dreams and how they were funny.

    I have so much faith in these oils, I truly believe Christ gave these oils and supplements to us to use to maintain our bodies.

    • Angel,
      So glad to see you continued to look for some that helped. As I always say… what works for one may not work for another. We’re all created different and everyone responds differently. Congrats on your success… such a sweet ending!
