My Dear Readers,
Each week our community asks us some fabulous questions about recipes, dilution advice, and general inquiries about how to maximize the usage of Whole Naturals Castile Soap. This week, our email was flooded with questions about using Castile Soap as laundry soap and bath soap for babies.
In fact, Whole Naturals Unscented Castile Soap contains a variety of organic carrier oils including coconut oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Hemp Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Prickly Pear Oil. All these natural ingredients have been specially combined to soothe and moisturize skin of all types.
Whole Naturals Pure Castile Soap is generally considered safe for babies, as it is made from natural ingredients and does not contain harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances. There are a few things there are super important - just as you would dilute Castile Soap for all other purposes, undiluted Castile soap can be harsh on the skin, so don't forget to dilute our castile soap with water when using it on your baby.
Ready to pamper your little one? Here's our favorite recipe for baby shampoo and body wash!
Baby Shampoo & Wash
1/4 cup Whole Naturals Castile Soap 1 Tbl glycerine 1 tsp fractionated coconut oil 8 drops of essential oil 10-ounce foaming soap container
Add all the Ingredients to the foaming soap container and top off with water.
Shake before each use to combine the Ingredients.
Lather up a quarter-size amount of body wash and apply it to your baby's hair and body.
Our favorite combination of baby-safe essential oils? 5 drops lavender and 3 drops roman chamomile!
*Notes Keep away from eyes. This baby wash is not tear-proof. (Fun fact: To make baby wash tear-proof, commercial baby shampoos have chemical additives!)
And for those who have asked about making laundry soap that is gentle enough for your baby? Here's a tried and true recipe! (And by the way, if your baby's clothes are more heavily soiled, you can add washing soda about 1-2 tsp per load).
With all topical skin applications, it is always a good idea to test a small amount on a patch of skin before using it on your baby's delicate skin.
When our kids were young, bath time was part of our nap and sleep routine. We found that our babies slept longer and better after a warm, relaxing, and soothing bath.
So, go ahead, and enjoy using our pure castile soap for all your bathing and household needs! Because Castile soap is not only good for your skin, and also good for the environment too. Whole Naturals loves to take care of your baby and you.
