Quick and easy recipe for homemade baby wash and shampoo (16oz.). It’s great for hand soap as well! We use it in our office and at home. I have to add if you try this recipe using the essential oils (optional) make sure to use pure, unadulterated organic oils. These are NOT synthetic. If you use Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps, the Unscented Baby Mild Castile Soap works best for my kiddos. You can purchase it here.
Also, Dr. Bronner’s has an array of scented soaps that work wonders if you are going to make hand soap – these include tea tree, rose, peppermint, lavender, citrus orange, eucalyptus, and almond. I would stick to very mild scents or unscented for the baby wash. Always remember to change-up the recipe to suit your needs, such as your baby’s skin type, age, and/or possible allergens. In my opinion, warm water is all you need for the wee little ones!
Side note: If you do use this soap on your babies, make sure to avoid their eyes because it’s not tear-free and it will sting a bit.
If you have a homemade recipe please share it below. I am always looking for new ideas! Anything with olive oil, coconut oil, oatmeal, etc. I am currently on the hunt for a great natural DIY laundry detergent. Anyone have one?
