My kids love to make messes, and this leads to lots of baths! The challenge is getting them clean, while not letting them soak in a chemical soup. We have used every “natural baby shampoo” on the market, and most of them work great. Unfortunately, I’m not such a huge fan of their prices! I decided to make my own because it saves some cash and I know exactly what my kids are bathing in. Plus, it makes their baby skin even softer! Need I say more?!
Now, when you read the ingredient list below you might think “Dr. Bronners? That stuff is like $16 a bottle!” Have no fear, you only use 1 cup for each batch of shampoo… which means you can make 4 bottles of shampoo from one bottle of Dr. Bronners. These are big bottles of shampoo, and they last a long time. Coconut oil is cheap and the lavender oil is optional.

- Mix everything together and put into a plastic container (no glass in the tub!).
- Shake it up.
- We re-used an old Burt’s Bee’s Baby Shampoo container.
Make sure to lather and rinse very well. I just lather, scrub and rinse right away. If not rinsed well enough, your kiddo will look like a greasy little monkey! But after soaking in that tub with the shampoo in the water, their skin is so soft!
