Plenty of essential oils have been scientifically proven to hold serious sleep-boosting powers, and Jenna Dewan Tatum is taking full advantage.

In a recent interview, the actress revealed trying to get her four-year-old, Everly, into bed at night can be tricky, but thanks to a special blend and a trusty diffuser, her daughter’s room—as well as her own!—is totally Zen.

“I blend lavender, peppermint, and lemon together, which is really good because it’s calming and also purifies the air.” — Jenna Dewan Tatum.

“I blend lavender, peppermint, and lemon together, which is really good—one because it’s calming, but it also purifies the air,” she told Women’s Health. “I think [my daughter] sleeps 11 hours, so I don’t know, maybe I have the secret.”

That’s not the star’s only genius method for helping her little one catch some zzz’s, though. Dewan Tatum also created a nightly routine that sends Everly into relaxation mode pretty much immediately.

“I’ll make a little smiley face on her belly with a lavender oil roller before bed,” the actress said.

So whether you’ve been having sleep issues or just need a better method for unwinding at night, give this smart mom’s go-to essential oils a try. If you’re anything like her daughter, you’ll be conked out in no time.

Find out how the world’s best scientists are hacking sleep. And if you’re wondering what your sleep position might mean for your health, here are all the answers.
