Here are some do-it-yourself all natural 'bathroom' recipes for you and baby. They work perfectly alongside our Rosy Baby, Bath, and Body line of make-up remover pads and baby washcloths.
All Natural All Purpose Baby 'Potion':
2 cups water
2 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops tea tree oil
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Directions: Mix together and put in a spritz bottle. Shake before each use.
We received this recipe from a good friend of ours. Not only does it have a light fresh smell, but we have found many uses for it! This 'potion' is a great wipe solution, as well as perfect for spraying on little tushies after each diaper change. It helps keep away diaper rash yeast and bacteria and helps clear up existing rashes. It can even help clear up mild skin irritations all over the body! Safe to use on babies, adults, and with cloth diapering! <---Just be careful not to get too much of the oil on the diaper, which can cause repelling.
All Natural Make-up Remover Tips: (straight from your kitchen!)
- Use olive oil on your make-up remover pads to remove all make-up.
- On a separate pad use yogurt OR milk to remove residue, soften, and moisturize your skin.
