There are few things more precious to parents than bedtime. If your home needs more peace before bed, then our Good Night Bedtime Spray should be the next recipe you try. Use this spray on pillows, bedding, and all the favorite snuggly blankets.
There are many things that help our family to calm down after a long day. Sometimes we arrange a relaxing bath, a bedtime story, and almost always a last drink of water. The kids have their own roller blends that we use on their feet after they brush their teeth. Of course, we turn on the diffuser with a relaxing blend.
But, our latest addition to our bedtime routine is the Good Night Bedtime Spray. It’s great for naptime, too!
Gentle Baby is the featured oil in our recipe and it’s truly one of our favorite essential oil blends. It’s a unique and wonderful mixture of:
- Ylang Ylang
- Roman Chamomile
The first time I encountered Gentle Baby Essential Oil Blend I simply couldn’t believe how tranquil the scent was. If you’ve ever heard of the expression “sleeping like a baby” then you have imagined the feeling of harmonious feeling that Gentle Baby creates.
Gentle Baby is perfect for calming emotions and creating a relaxing environment. I’ve found that it helps my family quiet their minds at night and soothe troubled little ones.

Pro Tip: If your child is going to stay the night with friends or grandparents, spray your child’s pajamas and stuffed animals with this spray before they leave. When they prepare to go down for the night, they’ll be reminded of home and feel more comfortable and at ease in their new bedtime environment.

I would like to make my own Gentle Baby, among many other YL blends. Do you have a recipe for it? Thank you!
Beth K says
I’m not sure about a recipe, Monica. Because all those oils aren’t in stock at YL to make my own Gentle Baby I’ve always been happy to buy their bottles. If you find an alternate recipe, I’d love to hear what worked for you.
Hi Beth! I’m new to essential oils and REALLY loving your site. Gentle Baby is on my list of things to order next and I’m definitely going to make this bedtime spray. I have a 4 year old and a 6 month old and I’d like to make one bottle that I can use for both girls. Will this recipe work or should I do 10oz of water? Thanks 🙂
Our dog sleeps with us. What sleep aid is safe for her? I can’t sleep thru the night…. I know some products are dangerous for animals.
