Basic Household Wet Wipe Recipe

I’ve been looking around for a easy natural household wet wipe.¬† I love my Norwex¬† antibac cloth, but some times I just want to reach for a disposable, premoisted wipe.¬† After reviewing THIS product I was finally able to come up a basic recipe for wipes.¬† One where I could easy make up several batches and simply change out the essential oil based on the intended use.

My first endeavor was to make antibacterial wet wipes for the floor and counters.¬† I also of course wanted one that was safe for the kiddos to use.¬† Theives cleaner came first to my mind. ¬†This recipe is so simple.¬† I’ll never buy disinfectant wipes again. I have a batch made up for the house and some in car for grubby hands on the road!

The next wipe I needed to make was one to wash my cows udders prior to milking her.  The common way to cleanse the udders is iodine or bleach.  No Thank You!!  Some people use just a plain warm wash cloth, and that would be fine.  However, I wanted a wipe that not only visually cleans the udder but also one that would eliminate any potential bacteria.  And, the last thing a I want to do is slather a bunch of harsh chemicals on gentle parts, especially when these parts produce food for my family, like milk, butter and cheese.  In the Branch Basics user guide  it states baby wash as one of MANY uses for their product..  so why not udders?   Together with a few drops of Thieves essential oil for antiseptic and anti-mold purposes, I have made soft, clean, chemical free udder cleansing wipes.

A friend of mine has been fighting fly bites in her horses ears.  This is a recipe I came up with to help her not only clean the ears but also as a deterrent for any further fly bites.  Idaho tansy is an excellent pest deterrent.

¬†Who doesn’t need a good makeup remover?¬† And a rejuvenating one at that.¬† For these wipes I use Carrot seed oil and Frankincense together.¬† The carrot seed oil improves the complexion¬†of the skin, while also tackling wrinkles, dryness and is also known to improve eyesight.¬† Frankincense is my above all favorite oil. How can you not love a oil that is referenced 52 times in the Bible?¬† Not only does Frankincense oil¬†increase activity of leukocytes in defense of the body against infection, but it may also help with aging, scaring, wrinkles and good old fashioned emotional balance.
