Friendly Bubble Bath for Kids
Kids love bath time; especially when there’s lots of bubbles, bath toys and fun!
Unfortunately, most children’s bath and personal care products are toxic to their young, growing bodies. I know if you do a little research you’ll be shocked to see just how harmful kids’ bubble bath really is.
The Environmental Working Group- a watchdog organization whose mission is to help protect children, educate parents and safeguard the environment from unregulated chemical toxins in food, water, personal care, cleaning products, and more- has compiled an extensive database where you can see how popular brands stock up and rate your personal favorites, visit their skin-deep database.
EWG found Johnson & Johnson’s (A Chemical Company)
Baby Bedtime Bubble Bath and Wash contains many hazardous ingredients. Health concerns ranging from organ toxicity, allergies, cancer-causing endocrine disruptors and much more.
EWG found Mr. Bubble is toxic to organs, skin, eyes, lungs and to the environment. The ingredient listed as “fragrance,” represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals, therefore, the health risks to young children is quite worrisome.
Now you can make bubble bath that won’t poison you or the kids with cancer-causing chemicals, for only a fraction of the cost.
Bath time is a great time for the kids to wind down (parents too), so the addition of lavender essential oil will work wonders to relax the wildest of little Indians.
The ingredients are safe for young children and Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap is as pure and gentle as you’ll ever find. Glycerin is a wonderful moisturizer and bubble maker. And of course, lavender essential oil is nature’s calming and soothing remedy.
(Our dog Scampy loves it too😊)
1/3 c. vegetable glycerin (We use Aura Cacia products most of the time for their reputation of purity and integrity.)
1 T. filtered or distilled water
15-20 drops of *lavender essential oil

When my children were old enough to sit in the tub without assistance, I would read them stories. Books about naptime or sleep are good choices to help your little one ease into bedtime.
Why pure essential oils and not cheap fragrance oils?
Essential oils are plant-derived. They should always be used with caution as they are potent and may irritate the skin and mucous membranes.
Fragrance oils, while less expensive are made from synthetic ingredients. Academy of Sciences reports 95% of fragrances are derived from petroleum, known to cause cancer and a host of other health problems.
Why Are U.S. Companies Allowed to Sell Toxic Products to Consumers?
The U. S. Chemical Industry has a lot of buying (bribing) power in Washington and in the media (consistent and repetitious television advertising is responsible for brainwashing the public). With virtually no regulation of the 80,000+ chemicals used in virtually every customer product, consumers risk their health and the health of the planet every time they purchase an item that is not organic or ethically sourced (Certified organic, green or EWG verified.)
As we continue to vote with our dollars and buy safe products that are ethically sourced/created, we send a loud message to the chemical companies: We care about our family’s health and the health of future generations.
