DIY shaving cream with essential oil

Summer is almost here! no more bundling our bodies in warm clothes. Now with the summer clothes on their way out of the closet, weekly shaving is back on the radar. For smooth, moisturized skin, it’s necessary to find an amazing shaving cream, but that can be challenging when so many commercial products include harmful ingredients or excessive foam that makes it tough to see what you’re doing.

This is an all natural shaving cream, light, and super silky. The best part is it moisturizes your skin while you shave—and you can create it yourself! I’m sure you will love it.

Here’s how to make it: 

What you need:

  • – 1 cup virgin coconut oil
  • – 1 cup shea butter
  • – Essential oils of choice, 20–30 drops

How to do it:

  1. In a small pot, combine coconut oil and shea butter on medium heat.
  2. Once melted, remove from heat and add essential oils. Mix well.
  3. Let cool in fridge for 30–45 minutes or until mixture is no longer clear. It should have a soft texture.
  4. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip product for about 2–3 minutes or until it looks like foam and forms peaks.
  5. Store in a glass jar at room temperature.
