Why do we use store bought baby wipes to clean our baby's bottom at diaper changes? The answer is simple; for me it was a mix of convenience & the fact that I didn't know any better. Did you know that you can simply use water and a cloth? There. Problem solved. Thanks mom. However, I wanted something that could soothe my little one's cute little butt cheeks at the same time, so I added a bit Calendula and Eucalyptus Oil. Calendula Oil is moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal & gentle on baby bottoms. Eucalyptus Oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial & antiseptic.
2 cup of warm Water
1 tablespoon of Calendula Oil
2 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
You can either use cloths or disposable paper towels.
Mix all the ingredients & soak the cloths.
Squeeze excess water out & dispose of liquid mix.
Put your wipes in a container of your choice.
1. Make only enough wipes for one day.
2. Wash the container daily.
3. Wash the cloths after every use.
Do you use a natural homemade body care recipe?
My last words of wisdom; if ever I have another child, I'll still use the store bought wipes when I go out, or go on trips, it's much more convenient. At home though, I'll opt for the more nature friendly washable cloths.
