Thanks to Julie for this Frugal Baby Tip!

It's basically the recipe from the BabyLane, modified a bit. I put it in a squirter bottle that they give you in postpartum (an epi-care bottle, I think it's called?) This holds 8 oz, so my recipe is designed to fit in that :

1 cup distilled water
couple squirts baby oil (2 tsp, I think)
2 drops Tea Tree oil
3-5 drops lavender oil
1/4 tsp peppermint Dr Bronners

I used to use lavender Dr. Bronners and keep it in a heater. While we were on vacation I didn't have the heater, and used some peppermint. Abby got the funniest look on her face, a happy look mind you. I think she likes
the "refreshing" feel of the cool peppermint. I have also used Aloe in it, but don't really notice a difference in her skin when I do use it, so why put
out the expense?
