Lavender Vanilla Sleep Stick Balm

in ,
Homemade lavender vanilla sleep stick balm will help you get a more restful calm sleep.

Life can be stressful and move way too fast at times.

Sleep can be elusive.

It's hard to turn off your thoughts at night when you have ideas for new blog posts swirling around in your head, baby chicks hatching, or you are trying to juggle, work, home, family and animals.

Enter my Lavender Vanilla Sleep Stick Balm to help calm your thoughts and allow you to drift of into a peaceful sleep.

This easy-to-make, all-natural sleep salve is designed to be dabbed on your pulse points - temple, behind your ears, wrists, elbows, etc. - to release calming essential oils as you fall sleep and your body warms under the covers.

I make it in small metal containers as well as in lip balm tubes (which I find easier to dab). You can do either with this same recipe.

Lavender Vanilla Sleep Salve + Sleep Stick Balm

The Ingredients | Lavender is used in all kinds of sleep and relaxation products. It has natural calming properties and helps promote restful sleep.

Vanilla is naturally soothing. This blend provides stress & anxiety relieving, sleep enhancing, anti-depressant, comforting and calming properties.


What you Need | 

2 ounces sweet almond oil
1 ounce beeswax
A few drops Vitamin E
10 drops lavender essential oil
10 drops vanilla essential oil
A dozen empty lip balm tubes

What you Do | Melt almond oil and beeswax slowly (over a double boiler or on a candle warmer), stirring occasionally with a wooden chopstick or skewer.

When the beeswax is completely melted, add the Vitamin E and essential oils, stir, and immediately pour carefully into your tins or tubes.

Leave to cool completely for several hours, then cover/cap and label (makes about a dozen tubes).

Dab the salve on your pulse points prior to bedtime as desired for a more restful, calming sleep.
