    Thanks for these directions! I’ve made these even more simple, you really only need a few drops of high quality lavender essential oil and a cup of water. Mix it quickly and pour over paper towels or organic flannel squares. The cloth ones are great for in a wipes warmer.

    I have made this recipe but find that the wipes are really sudsy. Is this normal? I just wonder how the soapy residue on my baby’s skin will react.

    The suds shouldn’t be a problem- or at least I had no problem with them. If your baby’s skin feels soapy, just wipe with water. Maybe try a little less soap the next time?
