Hi friends! Today I’m sharing how to make homemade natural baby wipes, and boy are they easy!

How to make homemade natural baby wipes - Dwelling in HappinessIt’s been hit-or-miss with my posting around here, and I apologize for that! Summer gets so busy. I can’t even believe we are almost in August!

When Jade was first born, I knew I wanted to get all harsh and nasty chemicals out of our home. I started with little things, like using Young Living essential oils to help clean. For diaper changes, I used the “sensitive” wipes, thinking that maybe they’d be a little less harsh on her tush. While they were better than some, they still weren’t to my standards of harsh-chemical free.

When a friend told me I should just make my own, I decided to give it a try. I wanted to save a little money anyway! These homemade wipes are super easy to make, and really cost effective!
