I *totally* stocked up on lavender and tea tree oil using the healthshop.com and drugstore.com coupons and probably have enough to keep me in wipe solution until Cassidy potty trains. Eight drops seems like a lot, but its actually not.

I've already made quite a few batches of solution from the first bottles of tea tree and lavender and it doesn't even look like I used any at all, by looking at the bottles

This is how I make mine...
I use the peri bottle I got in the hospital after childbirth... Not sure how many ounces it holds.. Maybe 8?

• 2 squirts of Johnson and Johnson Head to Toe Baby Wash
• 2 ounces aloe gel
• 4 drops tea tree
• 8 drops lavender

Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water. Shake to mix, making sure all of the aloe gel mixes well and disolves... That's it!
