Natural Homemade Wipes!

I recently discovered how AMAZING Essential Oils are! I've been looking for a great, all natural baby wipes option that doesn't have rubbing alcohol or other things that can cause diaper rash and other things for my little girls (they are so sensitive!). Now, I have seen some with baby bath wash as an ingredient and I could use the Jordan Essentials baby bath wash and that would work, but I do like the oils because it does end up being a bit cheaper in the long run. 
Now, I got this recipe from the doTerra Essential Oils magazine so they use there oils, but I'm sure it would be ok to use other kinds of essential oils. I find that they are the best quality, 100% pure essential oils so that's what I use. 

So here is the baby wipes recipe I use:


1 roll of premium paper towels (I used Viva)
2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil
 (I just used Coconut oil from the grocery store. You can get it online, doTerra has it, you can get it all over the place. Just make sure it's room temp or even a little soft/melted is alright because you want it to dissolve in the water)
3 drops lavender oil
3 drops melaleuca oil
 An airtight storage container.  
I used an empty baby wipe container. 

Cut paper towels in half lengthwise with a serrated or electric knife. Use half the roll now, and half later.
Pour the mixture over the paper towels and then cover with the airtight lid letting the mixture absorb for 10 minutes. Turn the container over and let it sit for another 10 minutes (I just turned over the roll in the wipes container). Remove and discard the cardboard middle, and then when ready to use pull wipes
 from the center.

If you want to make sanitizing wipes just put the following ingredients instead of the above essential oils. 

Sanitizing Wipes Blend:

 3 drops doTerra On Guard
3 drops lemon essential oil

Use them on any surface to clean and sanitize without worrying about harmful chemicals! Can even use them to clean sticky hands!

And now you are one step closer to making your home chemical/toxin free!

Natural House Cleaners!


Add these ingredients directly to a partially drained bowl:

1/2 cup of baking soda
10 drops of melaleuca essential oil
1/4 cup of vinegar

As it reacts, scrub the toilet.
This combination is intended for one use at a time. 

For serious rust stains, empty out bowl and scrub with wet pumice stone.



1 gallon of hot water
1 tablespoons liquid castile soap 
(substitute Dawn dish soap if needed)
15 drops wild orange essential oil
8 drops lemon essential oil

Combine ingredients in a large bucket. Use a mop to clean the floor. Rinsing optional.

I LOVE this cleaner! We use our refillable Libman spray mop and I just added a like 4 drops of lemon and 5 or 6 of wild orange to the warm soapy water. It is magic I swear!


SOFT SCRUB for Bath, Tile & Tub

Make in small batches and store in an airtight container. Enough for 2-4 applications.

3/4 rounded cup baking soda
1/4 cup castile soap (substitute: Dawn--but castile is better)
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vinegar
5-10 drops lemon essential oil
In a bowl, combine the baking soda and castile soap. Add the water and stir. Finally, add the vinegar. Consistency should be a soft paste.



Natural Laundry Stain Remover

Laundry Stain Remover

Combine 2 parts hydrogen peroxide with 1 part doTerra On Guard Foaming Hand Wash in a spray bottle. Shake to mix.

This works wonders on laundry stains, rusty water, and mildew stains in bathtubs and showers, as well as bathroom counter tops, sinks, and faucets.
