One of the biggest tasks when we go camping is getting the kids to sleep when it is perfectly light outside. Some times even I have a hard time so you an imagine it is tough for little ones. This used to be our least favorite part of camping, We would try so many things to get them to sleep but nothing worked and we would be so exhausted the next day. Even when we were able to get them to sleep they would wake up bright and early thinking it was time to start the day.
All this changed this season though. The lovely Outdoors With Oils sent me a game changer known as Serenity. At first I was a little nervous about it, could something as simple as an essential blend really help them sleep?? I was ready and excited to try it though. We just put a few drops on the girls chests as we are getting them ready for bed, went through our normal routine of snuggling and story telling then right as I was bracing myself for the normal "we don't want to sleep, the sun is still up blah blah blah" I looked over at the kids and they were sleeping! WHAT?!
Surely they would wake up when I left the tent. Nope! Okay well they will wake up in an hour when they realize they have fallen asleep. Nope! It's 4 am, normal time for them to wake up while camping, brace yourselves... NOPE!
You guys, this really has been such a blessing for our family and our camping trips! It's amazing how much smoother the next day goes when we all get some sleep. Apparently not even the Alaska sun can prevent Serenity from doing it's job!! If y'all are interested in trying it for yourselves contact Morgan Somers and she can hook you up!
