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.
