Commercial baby wipes are made with ingredients that can irritate a baby’s delicate skin. This easy recipe is great on the go and can be used in any empty baby wipes container.
What You Need:
1 roll premium paper towels
2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil
3 drops Lavender essential oil
3 drops Melaleuca essential oil
An airtight storage container/empty wipe container/wet bag
Note: Use cloth for reusable wipes.
1- Cut paper towel roll in half with a serrated or electric knife. Use half the roll now, and half later.
2- Combine water, Fractionated Coconut Oil, and essential oils in a small bowl.
3- Pour the mixture over the paper towels and then cover with the airtight lid letting the mixture absorb for 10 minutes.
4- Turn the container over and let sit for another 10 minutes.
5- Remove and discard the cardboard middle. Just pull the wipes from the center when you are ready to use. Store in container of your choice.
Tip: For on-the-go wipes, insert 15-20 wipes into travel size wipe container.
