Peaceful Child Essential Oil Blend

Peaceful Child is a blend of essential oils that is quickly becoming a favorite for moms & adults.

Originally Peaceful Child was blended by a mom who had a special needs child of her own with Tourette’s Syndrome. Children with this disorder often have a wide range of disorders including ADHD, impulsive & defiance disorders, depression and anger management issues. Insomnia may be a factor as well. Often times children with Autism or Aspberger’s Syndrome manifest with similar behavioral disorders.

The Peaceful Child blend has helped many children who’s lives are controlled by such disorders. Adults are finding a place for Peaceful Child as well, helping them to cope with emotional trauma and anxiety. It is also fantastic for those with insomnia issues, with countless reports of getting the best sleep in years when applying Peaceful Child before going to bed.

Peaceful Child will not cure anything, but it will aid in balancing out the entire nervous system while nourishing the brain. It has been noticed that with regular use it may diminish the intensity of some of the issues noted above.

Be sure to only use the purest essential oils that are Certified Pure and carry the CPTG label, ensuring the purity, potency and authenticity of these oils.

Here is the how you can blend your own.

85 drops Vetiver
30 drops Ylang Ylang
20 drops Frankincense

    I am a huge fan of the Peaceful Child Blend using doterras oils. I use it to calm my children when they are too energetic and it works wonderfully. I noticed that they sleep better, easier and longer when they use it regularly. I simply rub it on the bottom of their feet when needed and/or before bed.
    An added bonus is that it works great for adults too. It has helped me curb the occasional sleepless night. I’ve given samples to friends and family and have received great results. Even coming from a relative who’s been on sleeping meds for years. She no longer has to take the prescription thanks to the PC blend.
    All and all, it’s worth the investment!!!!!!

    Hi!
    I’m wondering how much a “drop” is — at first, I was thinking that it was 1/2 ml. But, if this is the case, then 80 drops of an oil would be 40ml’s. And, I’m thinking that can’t be right – but, maybe it is.

    Thanks! I am very excited about getting started with Peaceful Child for my son.

    • A drop is just the drop that comes out of the bottle. Exactly how big it is, I dunno. But I do know that there are 300-350 drops per 15 ml bottle of essential oil. Some drops because of consistency are a little larger or smaller. So I agree 1 drop + 1/2 ml is way too much.

  4. There are 250 drops of oil in a 15ml doterra bottle. Also, 1oz = 30ml. So it would be 1/20th of a milliliter in a drop.

    • Thanks Amber for that info. Exactly how many drops are in a bottle is not always so easy to determine. I have heard between 300-350 drops. Your estimate of 250 is new to me, but I can definitely imagine it to be true with some of the oils. 250 drops is now the lowest I have heard all the way up to 400 drops on the high end. The problem with trying to get an accurate drop count per bottle is the oils have different consistencies. Some are very watery like maybe Lemon and others like Vetiver are so thick they will not even drop out of the bottle dropper. Also a consideration, some people like to use eyedroppers. Those drops are a different size when there is some pressure to release behind it as opposed to drops that are dependent on gravity. I tell people that there are somewhere in the realm of 300-350 drops in a bottle depending on the consistency of the oils. Would be nice if we could get an absolute number, but I’m not sure it’s possible.

  5. I am dying to use this blend on my little guy and myself but I’m pregnant. Is this blend safe for pregnant woman due to the clary sage

    • I think I would avoid the Clary Sage because it can induce contractions, for right now anyways. You can make the blend up, avoid the clary sage, put it in a roller bottle and apply to the bottoms of his feet that way, and follow with socks if you are wanting to be particularly cautious. I like socks anyways, it really helps to hold the oils in.

      It is felt for the most part doTerra’s oils are safe at any point during your pregnancy, some recommend avoiding all oils during the first trimester but believe they are perfectly safe after that. Stephanie Fritz LM, CPM author of Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies say, “I have used doTerra essential oils in my practice since 2008 and have never experienced any adverse reaction to any of them during any trimester or during labor and birth. I would not recommend another brand in the same way.” In her book she recommends Vetiver, Frankincense, Lavender and Ylang Ylang for relaxation. Marjoram for muscle and pain relief as well as the Frankincense and Lavender.

  6. Thank you. I have the book as well and she also recommends clary sage for relaxation. That confused me. I think she meant during labor? I’m only halfway through my pregnancy so I think i will make the blend and omit clary sage. If like to use it on myself as well.

  7. Hi, Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I was wondering if you would know why this recipe has 85 drops of vetiver. I have seen similar recipes but the vetiver amount is between 15 and 30 drops depending on the website?

    Thanks so much!

    • The Peaceful Child Blend was originally created by a woman for her son. It’s exact blend proportions are a secret, but many have tried to copy it because it works so well. I have seen several recipes as well, this one I believe is the closest to the original however the owner of the original tells me there is one oil missing. Vetiver is excellent for calming the nervous system, in fact in my experience it is the best at doing so. It does not make you groggy or foggy, but it can just slows down a racing brain or the need for constant movement in as in very active child. It can calm a nervous system that is just firing off in such as way that may cause twitching and it is fabulous for improving focus.

      If you are looking for help in calming the above things I would think a recipe higher in Vetiver would be very helpful. Keeping that in mind, there is no wrong or right. Sometimes it takes a little tweaking of oil combinations until you find the precise combination that does what you are looking for it to do. Getting to know the oils is important for that reason. You can learn the subtleties that may make a blend do particular things. Be observant. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

  8. Do you add coconut oil to this as well?

    • You could, but you don’t have to. If a child or anyone has sensitive skin, you might want to dilute with CO a little bit. The oils in the blend are all quite gentle.

  9. What size bottle do you use to mix this in?
    Thanks!

    • I mix most of own blends in a 15 ML bottle. There are also little roller bottles you can get. I usually shop at AromatTools.

  10. Do you use Peaceful Child as a preventative or can you use it on an “as needed” basis (when the child is obviously agitated?

    • Either way, every day or just when you feel it is needed. It won’t hurt to use on a more regular basis if you want to keep the keel more even.

  11. Could you use vetiver for toddler? Modern essential tell you that no vetiver for child less than 6 years old

  12. Where do you recommend applying this blend? Thanks!! :)

  13. I just made the blend and it was 9 ml is it ok?

    • As long as your ratio is pretty close to the recipe it should be fine. That is one of the nice things about these oils, is that it doesn’t have to be precise. You won’t hurt someone if you have a smidge to much of this and not enough of that.

      • Nice, because people put notes that it should be15 ml and i got only 9ml everything per recipe, my son did go to sleep fact but was awake at 5:30am, is his sleep will improve?

        • Wonderful! 5:30 really isn’t that bad. Some kids are just early risers. Sure that is not what you want to hear, but it’s just the nature of parenthood:} If he slept all night through that is awesome.

  14. Yes he slept, it was great

  15. I have a customer asking for a sample of something for her 11 year old son who has signs of depression…will this blend work well for that?

    • It might, it has Frankincense in it and it can be very helpful with depression.

      • It should work and calm pretty well, but everybody is different if I am putting on myself i am falling to sleep in a minutes for my son i need to massage his big toe for couple minutes and wait for 20-30 min but it’s calming well
