is there something to put inside a huge teddy bear to aid sleep??
this lay be slightly off topic and i apologise if it is but my little one has trouble sleeping, shes 4 and just takes forever to get to sleep... i was thinking about buying her a huge teddy bear to make her feel safe and protected because i wonder if it is something to do with that- found some cool ones here http://justteddybears.stores.yahoo.net/reallybigbears.html and here http://www.twenga.com/price-huge-teddy-bear.html but i wanted to know if there were specific ones that they sell with lavender or something inside them to aid sleep? if not is lavender the best thing to stuff inside it to help her relax??
and if anyone has any other suggestions or is going through/went through the same thing id love to hear some of your advice, this bear thing really is just my first idea and im not sure that i have a plan b, c or d...
I think lavendar is going to be your best bet. I've never seen a bear where you can put something like lavendar inside of it... Very good idea!
Lemon balm and pepermint are supposed to help aid sleep as well, but I believe only if consumed. I did find a site (http://www.holisticonline.com/Remedies/Sleep/sleep_insomnia_herb...) which might help you.
Just buy a big teddy bear and don't worry if it doesn't have any fragrance. You'll have an easier time just picking up some natural lavender, cutting open the back of the teddy bear, taking out some fluff and sewing on a pocket on the inside to contain the smell. Then when it doesn't smell anymore you can replace it easy. + you don't have to worry about artificial smells if you DiY.

yes probably the best idea, youre right it will last longer.perhaps theres a niche in the marlet here...!!
mugwort, motherwort, damiana any of those herbs would be nice oh and hops too
if i put a range of herbs inside would they have a different effect due to being mixed? or can i put all aids mentioned in this thread inside the bear?
yeah, u can make a blend of herbs.
i use hops and lavender is a little pillow. its helping tremendously. hops is known for putting its harvesters to sleep. i hope it works.
