In addition to looking at her daytime naps and your evening routine, you need to have a look at what she is eating, especially in the afternoon/evening.

If she is taking ANY naps in the day time, stop them. Run her outside, play with her all day, tire her out. Get her to bed at a reasonable hour (like 8-9) and see how that helps.

Nice bath at bedtime. Try the bed time stuff. A friend said the febreeze lavendar thing helps

Does she sleep during the day? How much? How much total sleep is she getting? What's your bedtime routine like and what time does she actually go to sleep?

If she "truly" never sleeps (or really not enough sleep), you need to be seeing a sleep doctor. If she's staying up late because she sleeps in in the morning or because she's napping either too much during the day or to late in the day, then her schedule just needs adjusted. With a little more details about her daily schedule I can provide more specific suggestions.
