How to Use Essential Oils for Sleep

Learn how to use essential oils for sleep.  This includes the best essential oils to use for sleep and how to use them in several different DIY recipes.

However, I wanted to share with you how to use essential oils for sleep and relaxation because I know we're all done by this point in the school year, no matter how our kids are being schooled.

I think bath bombs are one of the most fun DIY bath and body products.  They are also one of the harder ones to make. I'll admit that I used to have a love hate relationship with bath bombs.  I loved using them, but I hated making them.
