Mommy and Me Natural Baby Products

Baby fever is in the air! Now is around the time when we start seeing more expectant moms and dads and we would like to share a few recipes that will help cut down costs while caring for baby's new skin and mommy's belly.

Here is a fantastic recipe for an all Natural Baby Shampoo and Body Wash:

3% Glycerin - 18 grams

0.3% Silk Amino Acids - 2 grams

0.5% Panthenol - 3 grams

Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil to scent if desired

Directions: Simply combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well to combine.  Add any scent if desired (try soothing Chamomile or Lavender essential oils) and package into bottles.  This recipe makes 600 grams (or 500 ml) of shampoo, which is such a gentle, nourishing cleanser it can be used as a daily baby body wash too!

Another great, natural recipe is our Non-Petroleum Baby Jelly. So simple, this natural jelly provides a protective barrier to the skin which holds in moisture and helps prevent irritation and chafing. This recipe makes 500 grams of baby jelly. 

94% Castor Oil - 470 grams

5% Beeswax - 25 grams

Directions: Melt the beeswax in a pot on the stove then remove from heat. Microwave the castor oil to just above body temperature, then whisk in the castor oil and Vitamin E to the beeswax. Keep whisking gently, allowing the product to cool into a jelly-like consistency. Once cooled, package into cosmetic jars or tottle bottles.
