Homemade Baby Wipes 

So when I was pregnant with my first, a friend asked if I was going to make my own baby wipes. I quickly responded with a “No, probably not.” It seemed unnecessary. Sure, I prefer natural products, which is why she asked, but who has time to make wipes? It wasn’t until recently that I realized making wipes would be really easy. It is better for baby (chemical free ingredients that agree with your baby) and cheaper. The whole process took about ten minutes! It was fun and the wipes smell super good.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 roll of strong and soft paper towels
  • 2 cups of warm water (to help ingredients mix)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Witch Hazel
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon of baby oil
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoon of baby wash (I use Honest)

Optional:

  • 1/2 Tbsp 100% Aloe Vera (especially if not in baby oil)
  • Baby safe essential oils

Directions

Cut paper towels in half using a serrated knife, set aside in air tight container. I used Via because they’re both strong and soft. I normally prefer a paper towel not made with chlorine but, I couldn’t find one strong enough, and a thin towel would disintegrate as you use it…gross!  Warm the water and add all ingredients, mix and pour over paper towels. Remove cardboard center and pull center paper towel piece so it’s ready for use. Place lid on and all done! Time to go clean some baby bums 😉

Grapefruit Limeade

Do you have a favorite summer drink? I personally love grapefruit flavored beverages! I can be bad at drinking the recommended amount of water each day, so having fun drinks around the house really helps. 

Grapefruit is good for your blood pressure and over all heart health. They’re packed with nutrients including lycopene and positively influence lipid levels. I’ve also read a study that found that men who regularly ate grapefruit have an above 50% less chance of prostate cancer! Go grapefruit! 

This limeade is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart and it’s looks pretty in your glass! Perfect for a summer barbecue or just when lounging around the house! 

Ingredients 

  • 2 Grapefruits 
  • 3 limes 
  • 6 cups of water 
  • A handful of mint 
  • Stevia or honey to taste 

How To

Squeeze juice of limes and Grapefruits into pitcher, save grapefruit pulp. Add water, sweetener, (if desired) and mint. Stir and add ice. Top with grapefruit pulp for extra color and texture. 

Your drink is ready to be poured and enjoyed!
