DIY Nourishing Baby WashWith the knowledge about big “trusted” baby care companies using toxins in their products, many parents are justifiably worried about finding safe products for their children. When it comes to skin, less is more and this simple recipe will leave baby clean without the worry of synthetic foaming agents, hormone disrupting fragrances or any other toxins.

 Nourishing Baby Wash Recipe

  1. Melt the coconut oil if needed.
  2. Stir all ingredients well in a cup and pour into your foaming pump.
  3. Before using, give it a gentle shake. That’s it!

This recipe works great in a foaming pump. Since it does not contain synthetic foaming agents you might find that it doesn’t ‘sud’ as much as you are use to with other washes. That’s okay! Suds don’t really do the cleaning, no matter what advertising would like you think. If you find that you’d like more sudsing, simply add a bit more of the Castile soap to your mixture.

I make the same thing! Dr.Bronners and water in a pump bottle equals great and less waste! 🙂 I will add some oil next time. Great idea.

Thanks for the suggestion! I love natural products you can make at home, and I already use coconut oil for a lot of things!

Love this idea, but how long does it store for? Id hate to make a whole bottle and have to throw it out if its not used quick enough.

Thanks so much for the recipe! I can’t wait to try it with my daughter. I also shared it on a blog I wrote with DIY baby wash ideas.

What is the shelf life with distilled water and just filtered water?
