How to make your shaving cream

So many times, we are stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea… Well, not literally but when it comes to the issue of shaving, there are always consequences. From razor burns or cuts to wild reactions from shaving creams. Why not try making yours from natural ingredients?

Here’s what you will need;

  • 4 Tbsp unrefined, raw shea butter

  • 4 Tbsp unrefined coconut oil

  • 3 Tbsp sweet almond oil or olive oil

  • 6-7 drops of the essential oils of your choice (totally optional, but they smell great, and you could use a citrus or peppermint scent to help wake you up in the morning

Melt the shea butter and coconut oil at a low temperature in a double-boiler, then add the sweet almond or olive oil and stir it up.

Pour it into a large bowl and let it firm up in the refrigerator. Then use a mixer to whip it up into a consistency more like that of a shaving cream. Store it in an airtight container.

Voila! You have your shaving cream.
