Chem free bottom wiping
Chemicals freak me a little bit. Not to the extend of keeping me up at night, but thinking how much we have surrounded ourselves with them and how very little we know about their safety does make me try to avoid them as much as possible.
So its no surprise that those commercial full of crap wipes are no good for my perfect little babies’ bottoms.
Here is what I use instead:
A squirt bottle with:
– few drops of tea tree oil
– few drops of jojoba oil
– few drops of calendula
– water to the top
The composition of the mixture can change, depending on whats going on with the bottom or what I have on hand.
Then when its time to clean – grab a wipe, squirt the mixture, wipe away and then throw with the diapers for washing.
Easy peasy happy bum solution.
Have you tried the good old tap water? :)
Baby Blab is a beauty. And admit I envy you.
Haha you are right, tap water is fine, but I like the germ fighting properties of tea tree and the caring properties of the other oils. ;)
Thank you for the kind words.
smarty pants!….no pun intended!
Im loving using tea tree oil over here too!
And because of you, there are NO chemicals except bleach in this house either!
That makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, Zizi ;)
