Homemade Baby Wipes w/ Essential Oils

Make your own baby wipes with doTERRA essential oils

With all all the harsh and toxic ingredients found in our personal care items, I was happy to find doTERRA has a recipe for making non-toxic baby wipes! Best container to store them in is the tall, cylinder baby wipes container you can buy at the store.

Cut a paper towel roll in half with a serrated knife.  (Hint – name brand paper towels do work much better)

Place half of roll into container and save the other half for later. Pour the following mixture over roll in container:

2 cups of water

2 Tablespoons doterra Fractionated Coconut Oil

10 drops each of doterra Lavender oil and Melaleuca oil

After the mixture has soaked for an hour or more, remove cardboard from middle of roll and start dispensing with middle towel with the cylinder baby wipe container.

(Cost Evaluation :  It costs $2.89 in doTERRA products to make this blend and there are approximately 56 sheets per paper towel roll = $.05 per wipe!)

Plus – no toxins going onto your baby’s body and the oils will actually help improve any diaper rash or irritation so it would save on purchasing separate creams!

  1. is this water tap or distill ?

    • Personally, I would use distilled but it is your choice.

  2. Could u substitute the coconut oil for grape seed?

    • Hi Jenn, yes you can substitute other oils for a carrier oil… doTERRA has found, however, that the fractionated coconut oil is ideal for essential oils because it doesn’t clog the skin -which could delay the oils getting into the body.

  3. I just made these, and I LOVE them! They smell great and feel great. I actually take the middle cardboard roll out first, though. That way I don’t get the glue from the center roll in the wipe liquid. Thanks for the idea!
