Sleepy Time herbal extract is a combination of three powerful yet gentle herbs that promote restful sleep and peaceful nights.



Tired of sleep-deprived nights?  Try our Sleepy Time herbal extract!

When your little one isn’t sleeping, you just don’t feel well — and neither do they.  Quality sleep is so important to a healthy family!

Our Sleepy Time Herbal Extract is a gentle, kid-safe formula that contains catnip, skullcap, and passionflower.  Catnip and skullcap both help to promote restful sleep, while passionflower reduces anxiety.  This combination can help your little one to fall asleep more easily and sleep more peacefully!

Use just a small amount of our herbal extract about 30 minutes before bed time to experience a peaceful night and sweet dreams for all!

This herbal extract also works great for mild anxiety and focus.  Catnip is rich in B vitamins and helps to produce a calm mood and ease stress.  Many children have had great results with ADHD, anxiety, and other symptoms by using this throughout the day.  Plus, the herbs are very gentle and kid-safe, and the tincture is alcohol-free.

    This product helps me every time I am having a hard time relaxing to go to sleep. I take it and within 10 mins I’m sleepy or asleep. Very thankful for this affordable healthy option.

  2. esaade (verified owner)

    This works for winding down. Not a fan of the taste but i add it to juice or water.

  3. Lindsay DeYoung (verified owner)

    Swear by it, look forward to taking it, take it religiously every night. It tastes good, and it’s an enjoyable habit to make! I know I’m more relaxed when I drop it in before bed.

    Bought this for my husband, who has a really hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, and getting a restful sleep. This stuff has worked wonders! He has tried everything in the book it seems, he was even taking a high dose of melantonin that didn’t help. Thanks to Earthley he is now getting to sleep faster and waking up well rested.

  5. Amanda Ramos (verified owner)

    These drops have literally saved me. My daughter wasn’t sleeping through the night she’d wake up in the middle of the night for 1-3 hrs every night and Would still wake up early in the morning. I was exhausted and I didn’t know what to do anymore. I found these drops and starting using them along with the bed time lotion. Within 2 nights my daughter started sleeping COMPLETELY through the night. I was so happy I could cry. I make sure I don’t ever run out of these drops. These are a must in my house. Thank you so much Earthley!!

    I waited far too long to try this! I kept thinking I didn’t really need it because my toddlers already sleep well, as well as I. But then my husband started working nightshift and was struggling bad to sleep during the day. So I bought this for him. He said it worked well most of the time, but he was also so tired when he got home that he’d forget to take it (he’s off nights now, thank God). But then I decided to let my 3-year-old try it. Annnd that’s how this became one of my favorite Earthley products! He always slept through the night but would wake up super early, no matter what time he went to bed. And after a couple nights of taking this, he regularly sleeps 1-2 hours longer! And if I forget for a couple nights in a row, then he starts waking up super early again. It doesn’t help my 1-year-old as much, but there are some mornings when she’ll sleep in longer than normal when I give this to her consistently.

    I use this for my three children because they struggle with sleep. My five and three year old take this and are out within 15 minutes max, which is a huge difference from the 2+ hours it would take to get them to fall asleep. My 23 month old does not react well to it, in that it seems to cause her to wake up more than usual, and keep her awake, so we stopped giving it to her but continued using the magnesium rub and she is sleeping for more than two hours at a time now (she was up every 45 minutes while taking sleepy time), so that’s the only reason I am not giving it a five star, but I will still recommend this to my family to use with their littles.

  8. GEtz (verified owner)

    Love this for myself and my 5 year old. He thinks it tastes good most of the time so usually he can just take it straight without any juice or “chaser.” Combined with the good night lotion and it makes a nice bedtime routine.

  9. Katie (verified owner)

    Just recieved this… With very high hopes… And the verdict is… It works!! I have been very stressed lately so I tried it right away. It definitely brought an immediate sense of calming it I felt WAY less tense. I gave it too the little one as she reached over tired mode.. And: she slept through the night..!! I can honestly say she has only slept through the night maybe 4 times ever, after long days on the lake usually. Will keep using this to promote calm, peaceful nights in the house.. Hopefully it continues to work!

  10. Stephanie Jantz (verified owner)

    This stuff works great on me and my daughter. I love it for myself more.

  11. Lauren Anslow (verified owner)

    I use sleepy time when my kids need a little extra help getting to sleep! Thank you Earthley!

  12. Amanda (verified owner)

    I call this “liquid sleep”!!!! My 2 year old sometimes will be so wound up and can’t fall asleep easily. Every time we remember to use this, after giving him a couple drops, he calms down and falls asleep right away!!!! I use it when my mind is running at night, and I can’t seem to fall asleep easily. I feel safe using it instead of other options as I use so little at a time, and it’s all organic herbs!

  13. Faith Nevarez (verified owner)

    My husband and I LOVE THIS! I ordered because I have pregnancy insomnia and very vivid nightmares. And my husband has been dealing with a lot of stress, causing him to have trouble sleeping and then when he does, he gets nightmares. We have been taking this for two weeks, we now fall to sleep so much faster, and stay asleep! I mentioned to my husband that I hadn’t been having nightmares and he realized he hasn’t either. We highly recommend this!

  14. Jadegetzcena (verified owner)

    Hands down, this is a MUST!
    I had insomnia and this with the goodnight lotion has completely solved that issue! I love that I can just close my eyes and go to sleep when I WANT to now. And it doesn’t make you feel groggy or drugged up!

  15. Brenda (verified owner)

    Doesn’t taste great but it’s tolerable, again this product hasn’t improved my sleep issues at all. I was very hopeful

  16. Rebecca S (verified owner)

    I got this to try for my twins and I honeslty didn’t expect much, but since the first time using it, it has dramatically helped them calm down to go to sleep, and then stay soundly asleep! We love this stuff and they ask for it every night!

  17. Jessica (verified owner)

    At first I didn’t think it was helping but after a few days it was helping. I either take it alone or I take it with my chamomile tea. I will definitely be ordering it again. And I will tell others who have problems sleeping about this too.

  18. Kassandra (verified owner)

    I currently take half the adult dose to fall asleep faster. The full dose makes me groggy in the morning and maybe because I’m petite. Anyway, this works as stated and I recommend to those who need a more sound nights rest.

  19. Beth (verified owner)

    This is not a “knock-out” formula. I’ve found that it helps relax me without drugging me, if that makes sense. My husband was reluctant to try it. I think he was concerned it would make him unable to function or drug him to sleep. He was pleasantly surprised that it helped him go to sleep without the drugged “hangover” that some other sleep remedies produce.

  20. Margot (verified owner)

    Another must have! I pair this with Good Night Lotion and fall asleep easily and quickly and tend too stay asleep much better now! A lifesaver!

  21. Jennifer Metevier (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! It helps me sleep and the big bottle honestly lasts me a really long time. Very comparably priced to the many supplements (like melatonin pills) that you may need otherwise.

  22. Misti Chuang (verified owner)

    I bought this to help my 3 yr old with some sleep issues we’d been having. She was waking multiple times a night and then struggling to get back to sleep. After a few days of regularly supplementing her with this at night I started to notice less waking and more restful sleep for her. I now also take this most nights before bed and I really believe it helps me to relax and sleep better as well. Our whole family is finally becoming more rested and having better attitudes during the day. Of course there are many different things that can contribute to restful sleep, but this has truly been a key for us!

  23. Jess C (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! My son and I take it every night before bed and it really seems to help! Tastes great too! My 2 year old takes it happily every night.

  24. Emilie (verified owner)

    I have been using this to help my daughter sleep. She was having sleep issues and I used it to aid in my sleep training of her. It helped to calm her down and before bed so that she wasn’t overtired as I was trying to help her get to sleep. Highly recommend.

  25. Cora Soleil (verified owner)

    I have chronic insomnia my entire life. As an adult its gotten worse. Whiskey is great lol, but I have to say this stuff is infinitely better, and healthier! It brings peaceful rest with no groggy feeling the next day.
    And since my son has turned one, we’ve given it to him a few times (obviously at the recommended smallest dosage) and it has helped him through the one year “teething leap/regressions” immensely

  26. Callie (verified owner)

    I purchased this for a feiend having trouble falling asleep at night. She actually falls asleep much faster and sleeps longer when using this.

  27. Jessica (verified owner)

    I’m going to have to order some more of this soon, because it’s almost gone, and i just don’t sleep as well without it. I fall asleep easier, sleep deeper, stay asleep, have dreams less, and wake up feeling well rested. Who wouldn’t want that?

  28. Kevin (verified owner)

    I have ADHD, and it makes it hard for me to fall asleep since my thoughts never shut off. This helps so much. My mind is much calmer when I take this before bed, and I don’t have trouble falling asleep. It’s great for the kids too, especially when they’ve had a rough day and are restless at bedtime. They are able to get much better sleep, especially when paired with the Good Night Lotion.

  29. Faith Miller (verified owner)

    This remedy is wonderful! Use this with my son when its time to get ready for bed or nap time and withing a few minutes hes calmer. Sleeps better to. Ive given this to my husband a few times when he gets restless and it works very nicely. Its definitely a must have in my natural medicine cabinet!

  30. Beth Knoll (verified owner)

    Life. Saver. My second child was a terrible sleeper from 3 months to 2.5 years and would wake up four or more times a night. Brutal after months and months! I finally found out about this when she was around 1 and gave it to her each night, and it significantly reduced her wake-up times and helped her be less grumpy the next days.

  31. MaryAnn Hecker (verified owner)

    We love Sleepy Time Extract but, it’s too pricey for a family to use often.

  32. Natalie (verified owner)

    Along with the tooth tamer and the calming tincture, this stuff is also magic in a bottle. My daughter is a horrible sleeper. Normal for us is around 3 hours total broken up in the night. Takes her forever to fall asleep, then she wakes up often. After receiving this, she passes right out, sleeps soundly, and wakes up happy in the morning. This has pretty much never happened before and she’s 26 months old. It has only safe ingredients, nothing habit forming or scary like most OTC sleep aids. I’m definitely ordering this on a regular basis….I can’t risk running out and going back to not sleeping!!!

  33. Katie P. (verified owner)

    I added this to my son’s bedtime routine for a solid 3 weeks and couldn’t tell a difference with sleep. He is 18months old. I feel bad leaving this review because I love every single other product I have gotten from here!! Jist wasnt the right fit for him!! I would just suggest getting the smaller bottlw to see if it would work for you

  34. Kaelii (verified owner)

    Oh my, this stuff is great. I’ve been suffering with getting quality sleep recently due to diet change and I use this stuff along with the magnesium lotion and sleep like a bear. Tastes wonderful also which I think is important. I also give it to my 3 year old occasionally when she isn’t sleeping well or is still really energized at bed time. She loves it and looks forward to getting it. Highly recommended!

  35. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    In my arsenal for sleep. Works great. Doesn’t make you sleepy just helps you relax so you can go to sleep.

  36. Morgan Ruiz (verified owner)

    We have added this to my 3 year olds night time regimine along with the magnesium rub. We love this product so much. I will say the first time my son took it he didn’t like the flavor but it must not be too bad because he has continued to take it without fuss. He now sleeps all night instead of his typical waking twice a night. We can’t rave about this enough, it has been a life saver for this tired momma! Thanks for your amazing products.

  37. Tanielle (verified owner)

    I gave this to my daughter every night before bed thinking it had a placebo effect until I ran out. After three nights, I ordered the four ounce bottle. This is by far my favorite Earthley product.

  38. Lauren Felker (verified owner)

    I LOVE this product! It tastes good, relaxes me and I sleep deeply! I feel great in the morning too!

  39. Emily (verified owner)

    My son and I both use this, it really helps both of us wind down but doesn’t leave us feeling groggy when we wake up!

  40. Mary

    This is tasty and soothing, really helps with winding down and getting sleepy. No more tossing and turning.

  41. Morgan Marshall (verified owner)

    Just what my little one who was going through a sleep regression needed! No more constant waking, no more restlessness, no more fighting to go to sleep. We give the recommended just before bed so he can begin to calm down and relax, then he nurses right to sleep and is out for the night. And when we accidentally forget to give it or take it ourselves? No problem! It isn’t habit forming and doesn’t prevent the body from making its own melatonin, so we still rest so much better then we used to. This is a must have.

  42. Jessica (verified owner)

    As far as taste goes, this is hands down my favorite extract from Earthly that I’ve tried. It’s sweet and mild, so even the kids don’t need coaxing to take it. It helps us all wind down at bed-times and I don’t have to take pills to help me sleep as often as I used to- yay!

  43. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    Part of my insomnia plan. Works like a charm.

  44. Heather Faulder (verified owner)

    I’m give this to my toddler and it definitely helps him go to sleep faster than before.

  45. Kayla Courson (verified owner)

    I take this myself and it really helps on tossing and turning nights. The taste is good also.

  46. Kelsey

    My son has always been a pretty great sleeper since he was a newborn so I got lucky with that! But i decided to buy this for nights when he’s sick or just having a hard time sleeping and it works great! Some nights he just dosent want to go to bed so I give this to him about 15 mins before he needs to be laying down and he will take it gladly no fuss at all about taste and then by the time the 15 mins is up he’s asking to go lay down instead of having to convoence him to do so! It’s a great product!

  47. Mummie Alamin

    I bought this for myself bc I have a really hard time falling asleep even when I am very tired. Not cool when you have and infant, and you can’t seem to sleep when he’s asleep. I’m not exaggerating when I say I feel so calm and relaxed after I take this. I have noticed that I need to try to sleep immediately after taking it bc if I wait, I wake back up. I also give myself a few drops of this even when I don’t plan to sleep simply bc it relaxes me, and it helps with my headaches and mood. I will definitely be purchasing some more of this

  48. Stacey Jackson (verified owner)

    Yes it does exactly what it says. Calms. I use this almost every night and I give it to my 1 year old also.

  49. Ashley Ruppel

    This is like a magical dream come true for a tired mama. I’m not sure how exactly it works, but it does! My 1 yo sleeps very sparatically, and this helps everyone get longer periods of more restful sleep.

  50. Alyssa Marshall (verified owner)

    This is my second time ordering this and we still love it! We got the smallest size and it lasted us 3 months. Given, I forgot some nights though and my son definitely knew it too.

    This has helped my son sleep SO much better at night! He used to wake at least 4 times a night but usually it was 6 or so. This helps him sleep soundly through the night! He actually enjoys taking it as well. I give him the dropper with the desired amount already in it and he gives it to himself and he’s ready for sleep after that. It’s become a nightly ritual and when we do forget he’s up and down all night. Definitely a favorite in my house for my 3 year old

  51. Lisa (verified owner)

    I give this nightly ro my 8,6 and 3 y/os. They ask for it everynight. We use in conjunction with the good night lotion. They love it.

  52. S. Fisher (verified owner)

    I brought this to a Family reunion since it can be more stressful then usual and harder to sleep. It worked WONDERFULLY to keep me remarkably calm when the family crazies would have normally induced a panic attack or at least an adrenaline response. It kept me sharp as a tact mentally, but no inexplicable “flight or fight” response. That is incredible! I shared with my siblings and everyone was looking for it before bed. A calm, happy, well rested house all around. If you are an adult that struggles with anxiety, I’d seriously give this a try.

  53. Angela (verified owner)

    Thank you for every review given, I will now try using this at nighttime. Some of the symptoms others have are the same with me. I did use this during the day to help my anxiety, but didn’t notice too much…BUT I have had very stressful last month or so. I plan to continue to use this as the reviews gave me some insight and realize sometimes it takes time before regimens will give you results. and I put the drops right into my mouth, and it tastes pretty good actually…thanks for that 🙂

  54. Britney (verified owner)

    This product is a miracle elixir! I gave it to my 8 year old, 5 year old and 3.5 year old after struggling to get them to fall asleep and stay asleep. My 3/5 year old, especially has a hard time falling asleep before 11 PM! We tend to start the kids off in their own beds and they all end up in bed with us by the end of the night. To my surprise, I woke up the morning after using this to an empty bed. I could hardly believe it, all 3 kids were still sound asleep in their beds! I will recommend this to anyone who has trouble sleeping/ falling asleep or who has restless children. *Side note, I also use the Good Night Lotion each night on myself and the kids as well.*

  55. Jenna Taylor (verified owner)

    If I could give this 100 stars I would. It enabled me to quit taking meds to get to sleep. I have been able to sleep every night since taking it. I fall asleep so much easier, and am able to go back to sleep after waking. Meds didn’t even work for me most of the time. This product has changed my family’s life, because I am now able to be at my best with adequate sleep. I’m more capable of being the wife and mother I want to be because this defeats my insomnia. Thankyou Earthly!

  56. Alyssa Marshall (verified owner)

    I bought this to help my 2.5 year old sleep through the night. For about a year now he has been super restless and wakes at least 4 times a night. The first night we used this he didn’t wake once! We’ve been using it every night for the past few days and it has definitely helped him sleep more soundly and he doesn’t wake but once a night if he wakes at all

  57. Hilary (verified owner)

    My 2.5 yo is and has been a terrible sleeper. She usually takes forever to go to sleep and wakes up in the night to come to our bed. I haven’t noticed anything magical using either the sleep drops or the sleep lotion, though she does like to take the drops and put the lotion on at night. I wish it worked as well for her as the other reviewers mentioned. Not a magic bullet unfortunately.

  58. Kathy Cochran (verified owner)

    I use the Sleepy Time to help me sleep. It really helps. I’ve tried numerous natural products and this does the trick.
    It’s also helping with an itching problem I’m currently having. I take some drops and it calms the itching right down.

  59. Ashley

    So I had been having sleep troubles earlier this summer. Often, I would have trouble falling asleep, taking maybe an hour longer than my husband after the lights had been turned out. And then, once I feel asleep I would wake in the night and not be able to fall back asleep for ~2 hrs! And then because it’s summer and brighter, I would usually wake up again in the 5 hour, instead of 6 or 630 like I wanted to. It was awful.

    I received this bottle about 2 weeks ago and I have had such better night sleep. I even looked back on my Fitbit sleep logs and the 6 weeks prior to getting this were awful, but the 2 weeks since have been awesome. I have been taking 12 drops before bed every night. Last night I didn’t take the drops, and I woke up in the night and couldn’t fall asleep for 2 hrs! It was horrible, again, and so I knew I should write a review. It seems to have made a dramatic difference for me.

  60. Taylor (verified owner)

    I have a 2.5 yr old who takes an hour to fall asleep and wakes 1 to 3 times a niggt, since using sleepy time she falls asleep in 5 mins and sleeps through the niggt, this saves my sleep and my daughter’s, it’s amazing, but a bit pricy as we use it every night

  61. Erin Cloak (verified owner)

    I suffer from severe anxiety and have a handful of serious stressers occurring in my life, which all affect my ability to get a restful night’s sleep. I have used this product a few times when I need/want some extra help getting a restful night sleep. 90% of the time I use it, I sleep soundly through the night without waking up at all when I typically am up to use the bathroom 1-2 times a night. I also have a noticeable increase in REM sleep and dreaming, plus I wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day. This is like magic in a bottle!

  62. Lori (verified owner)

    I’ve only used this a few times myself and with my youngest, she is 23 months. It has helped greatly! She wakes up just once a night and sleeps more soundly. She is normally very restless and will wake about three times.
