Feel confident that you are taking care of your baby naturally with these DIY baby products. Gather these 5 natural ingredients and 2 multi-purpose essential oils, and make these homemade baby products. These DIY baby product recipes will show you how to mix and create 7 simple baby care products naturally at home.
I’ll also share with you some easy steps on how you can buy quality essential oils at wholesale prices including the two that are featured in these recipes.
(safe for cloth diapers)
For cloth diaper laundry: Wash on your normal cycle adding an extra rinse if you desire. This recipe will thoroughly clean your cloth diapers without leaving a residue. The essential oil will kill odor causing bacteria and leave your diapers extra clean.
This will have natural sanitizing action that will kill bacteria and also remove stains. Your prefolds will be brighter and whiter without bleach.
You can use this directly from a spray bottle on baby’s bottom and then wipe away with a clean cloth. I prefer to store the cloths in the solution in a recycled wipes box. This way they're always ready and the diaper change is faster.
The soap is very gentle on the skin, but it does not have the “tear free” chemicals found in many commercial baby shampoos. So use extra caution taking great care not to get in baby’s eyes or mouth.
Cradle Cap is very common but can be frustrating for parents. Use this protocol to help clear away the buildup.
Don’t worry if some oil is left behind. Jojoba oil is well absorbed by the hair and skin and acts as a non-greasy conditioner and softener.
The scales won’t all come off the first time, but this gentle treatment can be repeated daily until the area is clear of buildup.
The lavender oil will soothe the baby and help keep her calm while you treat her hair and scalp. It can also help in healing any skin irritation that might arise on baby’s delicate skin.
This will kill germs and still be completely safe. No need to rinse. Allow to dry completely before putting in baby’s reach.

Soothing for rashes and safe for cloth diapers
The coconut oil is amazingly nourishing for baby’s bottom. It moisturizes the skin and even has antimicrobial properties which can help prevent growth of bacteria in the warm, dampness between diaper changes.
The lavender essential oil can help the baby heal from a diaper rash or minor skin irritation. It is also soothing and aromatherapeutic, calming baby and bringing a sense of peace and wellness.
Moisturizing and antifungal (kills yeast, yes!). This cream is gentle on baby and safe for cloth diapers.
This is enough for a single use. I like to mix up only as much as I need so as not to contaminate the storage container with any microbes.
Coconut oil and melaleuca alternifolia essential oil are both proven to be antifungal. This will help alleviate the yeast.
You should change the baby’s diaper often if yeast is suspected so as not to give the yeast time to reproduce in a warm, dark, and moist environment.
You want the best for your sweet baby. If you’ve read the ingredient list on your baby supplies then you might have wondered if there was a more natural approach. These 7 ingredients X 7 combinations = 7 DIY baby products use proven gentle essential oils and natural ingredients to care for your little one naturally.
1. Click on this link and fill in your information. Please use your laptop or desktop to sign-up, instead of your smartphone or tablet
2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which are 24% more than wholesale).
3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2599082 (This will confirm your order so I can send you your free book!)
4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number then you can get an EIN from the IRS and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes – It's super fast and easy to do!). Young Living needs a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law).
Keep in mind that if you use an EIN, you will need to talk to your accountant about filing quarterly taxes.
Here's the link for an EIN: https://sa1.www4.irs.gov/modiein/individual/index.jsp
Or, if you feel more comfortable, you can visit irs.gov and search for “Employer Identification Number (EIN).”

You can get one of the kits that are $150, or you can get a kit for $160 with the bamboo essential oil diffuser.
