As I was looking through my Modern Essentials book I came across Serenity and thought I haven't talked about this one yet.  Serenity is a great Calming Blend.  I use this oil in a spritzer bottle and spray the kids beds just before bedtime and it helps settle them down for a good nights sleep.  Not every night has been a sleep through night but a couple of times when I have had to get up to upset boys in the night I have put some more serenity on their feet and sprayed the bottom of their pillow and within mins they have resettled and back of to the land of nod.  I have also made them a little scent satchel I would call it.  I infused Serenity in wheat and made a little satchel to put at the top of their beds.  During the day I put it into a zip lock bag to help hold the smell that bit longer.  Ive also used it on myself when Ive needed to go to bed but my mind is running at a hundred miles an hour or I have also infused a mix to make a salt bath ever so relaxing.  So here is some interesting information about this oil.

Stress is a major contributor to illness and disease, in fact, it is estimated that more than 90% of all visits to health care professionals are related to stress. Serenity is a blend composed of individual oils with known calming properties which create a sense of well-being and relaxation. Lavender, sweet marjoram, roman chamomile, ylang ylang, sandalwood and vanilla bean create a subtle aroma ideal for aromatic diffusion or topical application. Applied to the bottom of the feet at bedtime, dōTERRA®'s Serenity is an excellent way to promote restful sleep. Added to a warm bath Serenity creates the perfect escape with its peaceful, renewing fragrance.
For topical or aromatic use.
