Nightmare Oil Recipe

I created this oil for a good friend of mine. Her not-quite-two-year old son has been having lots of nightmares.  Not is his sleep being disrupted, but the rest of the family suffers right along with him.  This oil is a nice, safe, soothing mix of herbs in a carrier oil.  You can add a few drops to a spray bottle of distilled water for a linen spray or just use it as a massage oil.

30 drops chamomile essential oil (calming, soporific)
20 drops orange essential oil (promotes happiness and positive energy)
3 bergamot essential oil (protective)
45 drops lavender essential oil (calming)
15 geranium rose essential oil (love)
½ oz apricot oil

All of these essential oils are commonly available at health food stores, and they are all frequently used in baby products.
