My 3 year old son has been waking up from night terrors. He would start screaming and stretching and unstretching and you just couldn't console him. We would ask him if he was in pain and he said no.

I remembered that Lavender was used for calming and so I made him smell from the Lavender bottle and 15 minutes later he was back to peacefully sleeping. That happened another night. Then the third night I had him sniff the Lavender before he fell asleep and no night terrors. The fourth night I forgot to have him sniff the oil and he woke up screaming again. Made him sniff the Lavender and he was sleeping 15 mins later. On the fifth and sixth night I remembered to give him a sniff and I put a drop on his pillow of the Young Living Lavender EO before bed and no screaming. He was even asking to sniff it by then as at first he would run away from the oils.

Last night, the seventh night, we forgot to have him smell it but there was no more screaming. Hopefully his night terrors are over with and I know that I can use Lavender for him again if needed. AHHH, mama gets to have better sleep too.
