Don’t write me off yet.
Listen, I’m not a hippie. I don’t make my own soap or use salt as deodorant.
A few short months ago I scoffed at my Naturopath when
she mentioned that she made her own baby wipes.
“Why in the world would she do that?”
Then I had a baby. Then that baby started teething. Then that baby got a sore bum…
Now I make my own wipes.
It’s simple, takes about 5 minutes to do, and is more cost effective…
Take it or leave it – I’m sharing the recipe with you anyhow.
You might scoff now, and look me up later.
Homemade Baby Wipe Recipe
Bounty paper towels
Hot (pre-boiled water)
Unravel the paper towel. Separate sheets and cut them in 1/2. Then stack them up in an old wipes container or another sealed Tupperware/glass container.
*recipe makes enough for 1/2 a roll of paper towel
Boil water and measure out 1 cup.
In glass bowl, scoop out 2 Tbsp coconut oil (it’s solid until you pour water over), add 1 cap full of the Burt’s Bees soap, then add 2 drops or so of the calendula cream/ointment.
Pour 1 cup of boiled water over all & whisk together.
Pour mixture over wipes and let absorb.
Close lid and use as you would store bought wipes.
Trust me. Arjen’s rash cleared up in 1/2 a day.
When I use the wipes his bum gets clean but not red. It’s great, and they smell fantastic!
