Natural Homemade Baby Wipe Recipe

There’s nothing as soft as baby skin. Especially if you are washing your diapers, throwing a few wipes into the laundry isn’t a big deal. When my kids were small I would fill a thermos coffee dispenser daily with warm water and always have cloths as baby wipes.  This Natural Homemade Baby Wipe Recipe would have made things even easier!

Natural Homemade Baby Wipe Recipe

Take a handful of dates and a handful of almonds and whirl in a food processor until finely ground. Add in handfuls of coconut, seeds (pumpkin, sesame, flax), 3 T cocoa powder, plus 1 T honey or maple syrup. Then drizzle in  2 T water while blending until it forms a paste you can roll. Then roll into balls and roll these in coconut, flax meal, sesame seeds or cocoa powder!
You can also add nut butters, dried apricot or any other flavours you wish.

Seventh Generation goes Plant-Based

Don’t you love saving?  Money, coupons, trees….  Seventh Generation has a counter on their site indicating how many trees/barrels of petroleum they have saved by switching to plant-based ingredients in their baby products.  Baby Personal Care and Baby Home Cleaning are the first USDA Certified Biobased baby lines on the market today (meaning they are derived more from plant-based ingredients, than petroleum-based).  We’ve tested the baby hair and body wash, bubble bath, wipes and diaper cream and are thrilled with the result.  (And let’s just say that the products can often be found in bathrooms other than the one the kids use…)  Johnson & Johnson announcing it will begin to reformulate its products to get rid of all toxic ingredients in their baby care products by 2015.  Now that’s a reason to hug a tree.
