Recently, my baby decided to start putting up a fight at bedtime. He was inconsolable, and suffered night terrors due to being so tired by the time he finally fell asleep. By doing a little bit of product searching, I decided to give an oil diffuser a try.
Before the diffuser arrived in the mail, I was struggling. No amount of shushing, rocking, walking, swaying, singing, or soft voices could get my child to sleep in a reasonable manner. Every night we dealt with hours of crying, fussing, and lots of wakefulness.
Our oil diffuser changed everything.
We filled our chosen diffuser with the appropriate amount of water and 5-6 drops of essential oil. We chose lavender and vanilla mixed and ran the diffuser for several hours before bedtime. Immediately there was a noticeable difference in our son’s activity level. He was calm and relaxed.
At bedtime, he only mildly fussed and insisted on sitting up for quiet play twice before finally going to sleep. Before that, he would have been taken downstairs and rocked in the rocking chair a few times due to the extreme fussing in bed. Best of all, there were no night terrors! Not even a single night waking. That’s impressive!
The diffuser we chose, ZAQ Allay, runs very quietly and provides hours of oil-infused vapor. There’s an optional ambient mood light that gives the bedroom a nice, calming glow. The vapor is non invasive, yet easily fills the room with scent without being too strong. Most of all, it had a wonderful effect on our nighttime routine. I am eager to try new combinations of essential oils and discover the different healing properties of each.
I would recommend this oil diffuser to anyone looking to enhance their life with the benefits of essential oils, and especially to parents looking for an effective sleep aid for little ones.
