5 Easiest Natural Baby Shampoo Recipes For New Moms!

Natural Baby Shampoo

When deciding on which natural baby shampoo companies you can trust, it might be easier to make your own organic baby shampoo! Not all companies are as organic as they claim. For example, Aveeno baby products have recently received scrutiny for carcinogenic by-products found in one of their baby care lines. It is important to know what is in baby organics products, and the easiest way to do that with your natural baby shampoo is to make it yourself. Here are 5 natural baby shampoo recipes:

1. If you want the best baby shampoo, try adding Castile soap flakes with lavender oil. After boiling 12 ounces of distilled water, let the water cool for a little while and add four tablespoons of the soap flakes. After the flakes have melted into the water, you can add one or two drops of pure essence of lavender oil.

2. Another recipe for natural baby shampoo has very similar ingredients to the previous recipe. Boil 4 cups of water and add ½ cup of chamomile flowers. Allow the flowers to brew in the water and then strain them off. Mix 4 ounces of Castile soap flakes into the water and will have a natural shampoo for your baby’s soft hair.

3. Dried herbs are great in baby shampoo. Use 1 cup of dried herbs of your choosing (maybe lavender or rose petals) and pour 4 cups of boiling water over the herbs and allow them to simmer and steep. Strain the herbs and add 2 tablespoons of pure aloe vera juice to the water. Add ½ cup of Castile liquid soap to the concoction. Make sure you use an airtight container in which to store your shampoo.

4. A very simple baby shampoo recipe is to purchase Castile liquid soap and add an essential oil of your choosing.

5. If you are concerned about your baby’s eyes feeling the sting of any shampoo, a very simple, cheap, effective baby shampoo is simply warm water! Tiny babies do not get overly dirty. However, after bathing them in water only, use almond oil or coconut oil to moisturize your baby’s scalp and skin.
