DIY Shaving Cream

9841226219550

Oh, yes! Shaving Cream is another great way to use your essential oils! This is perfect for men and women.

This DIY shaving cream uses some of the best oils for our skin which are Peppermint eo, Sandalwood eo, and Tea Tree oil/Melaleuca eo. Combining these amazing oils with shea butter and coconut oil will leave your skin smooth and moisturized. This is super easy to make by the way.

Okay so what ingredients?
⅓ cup shea butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
5 drops Sandalwood oil
6 drops Peppermint oil
5 drops Melaleuca oil
How did I do it?
    • I put each of the ingredients except for essential oils in double boiler.
    • When the ingredients had melted, then I removed this from heat and let it just sit for 5 minutes.
    • I then added essential oils and stirred until it was all combined.
    • Then, I let is sit until it hardened.

I also put it in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.

I then used a hand mixer and whipped shaving cream until it was light.

Then I put this in a container… you can pick one. I did use this one though—click here to see!
