It makes me so sad to see a baby or a toddler that has a monster cold. I don't know about you, but we can go through boxes and boxes of Kleenex when a family member is sick. This past week my LO has been sick and we went through a box or two, and of course, the result was a pretty raw baby nose. I like the concept of boogy wipes but they can get awfully expensive if you use a ton of them. So I put my Pinterest research skills to work and found this DIY project that not only helps be gentle to tender noses, but also helps clear congestion as they blow.
What you will need:
1 cup hot water (preferably distilled)
A pinch of sea salt (I probably used about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 Tablespoon of aloe vera (gel or liquid)
The contents of 2 Vitamin E capsules
3 – 4 drops of lavender essential oil
3 - 4 drops of eucalypts essential oil
2 teaspoons witch hazel
Combine all the above ingredients into a small bowl, then soak pre-folded cloth wipes in the solution. I received a ton of cloth wipes from my baby shower and I used a few packages of these. Squeeze out most of the water and place in your container. I reused an old formula canister because we have a ton of these to place my wipes. If you run out of solution make a second batch to coat the rest of your wipes.
