RECIPE: Homemade Baby Shampoo and Wash


This recipe is so easy! Now, before you say “But Johnson & Johnson (or other company) makes such a good product, consider this. There are only three ingredients in this, and one of them is water. Another is essential oil. Castile soap is very gentle.


This is the Dr. Bronner’s brand, which is my personal favorite. There are others, but this one is pretty commonly regarded in “homemade” and “organic” circles as the best.

Here are the directions:

Homemade Organic Baby Wash

1 1/2C Distilled Water
1/4 C Castile Soap
A Few drops of essential oil (lavender, lemon, orange, etc)
Foaming Soap Dispenser (16oz)

Mix it up and done. Wasn’t that easy? And now you know exactly what you’re using to keep your baby clean.

This is a short post, I know, but since it’s been about two weeks since I put up anything new, I figured better a short post than nothing.


Look at that face! I want the best for my child, who’s no longer a baby, and I do everything I can to make sure she stays healthy. One of those things involves keeping harsh, potentially harmful chemicals out of the house.
