As much as I struggle to GET Skye sleeping the night, we have the opposite trouble with Christian. He is such a deep sleeper that it is near impossible to wake him up. A fire alarm could go off and he would sleep through it.
When I do have to wake him up…he’s not happy with me.
Although there is no way to get my little hibernating bear happy to have his sleep interrupted, I have developed a method that at least makes it clear that I’m not trying to be mean. It works quite well when combined with opening the blinds and a gentle nudges.

2 tablespoons Witch Hazel
1 cup filtered water

****Peppermint should be used only with children over 5. Be sure that you don’t spray it close enough to them that you get the spray in their eyes.
Choosing an Essential Oil Company to Trust with Your Health is a Big Decision
I recommend Rocky Mountain Oils because I honestly believe they are the best oils for the money. They have strong ethics about oil production and grow their oils in their native environment. All of their oils are either organically certified, organically grown or wild crafted with no adulterating. (Most oils you buy at the local health food store are adulterated with propylene glycol or a similar substances. )
I love that they are NOT an MLM, so there are no required orders or membership fees. They offer free shipping, so it makes sense to order even if you just need one bottle!
