This recipe comes via Wellness Mama and is full of nourishing ingredients for baby’s skin. So, if you are looking for a chemical-free lotion alternative, try this:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter (or 32 cocoa butter wafers)
  • 1/4 cup shea butter

  • Essential oils of choice. I used 15 drops each of Frankincense, Myrrh, Chamomile and Rose.

  1. Heat all ingredients (except essential oils) in a double boiler or in a glass jar or bowl over a small pan of boiling water.
  2. Stir carefully until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and add essential oils if using.
  4. Pour into a glass jar for storage.
  5. Use a small amount as needed for baby’s skin (or adult skin)

DIY Baby Laundry Detergent

A recipe by I Am That Lady and is safe for cloth diapers:

  • ⅓ cup Baby Mild Pure Castile Soap – Unscented
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable Glycerin
  • 10 drops Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Essential Oil
  1. Mix the soap, glycerin, and essential oil in a cup before adding to your washing machine.
  2. Wash on normal cycle.

For cloth diaper laundry:  Wash on your normal cycle adding an extra rinse if you desire.  This recipe will thoroughly clean your cloth diapers without leaving a residue.  The essential oil will kill odor causing bacteria and leave your diapers extra clean.

All Natural Baby Shampoo and Body Wash

homemade-baby-shampoo-733x1024by NaturallyMindful 

This recipe combines the calming effects of chamomile and the gentleness of pure castille soap, making it gentle enough for even newborns.

  • 6 oz Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild liquid castille soap (where to buy)
  • 1 tsp herbal infused oil. I used calendula and chamomile (find them here) see tutorial for infused oil here.
  • 10 drops of pure chamomile essential oil (find it here)

Using a clean container (such as these) and a small funnel (like these), add all ingredients. Shake gently before each use.

To use:

This recipe can be use as is, or you can dilute a squirt in a small amount of water in a small bowl with each use. Which is what I used to when my son was a small baby.

 

Teething Tincture

by Modern Alternative Mama

ModernAlternativeMama

A tincture involves basically the same ingredients as a tea, except it includes vegetable glycerin as an extractor and (natural) preservative.  It’s also much more concentrated, so smaller doses are needed.

Baby Wipes

TheNewLighterLife

What you need

  • 1 roll Bounty (must be Bounty – I tried another brand against my friend’s advice and they were terrible)
  • A very sharp knife or an electric knife works best (*UPDATE* We found a much better way by using a Miter Saw)
  • 1 T. baby wash
  • 1 T. coconut oil (you can use other oils but coconut has lots of good benefits so it’s a good choice)
  • 1 C. water (make sure it is hot if you’re using coconut oil so it’ll melt)
  • 1 container the appropriate size to house the wipes (the one pictured came from Dollar Tree)
