DIY Shaving Cream

03/12/2013 admin DIY Recipes




In my house, we try to use as many natural household products as possible and that includes cleaning products, soap, deodorant, etc. Buying all of that natural stuff at the store can be costly, but it’s really pretty easy to make most of it at home. Which is why I’m sharing this DIY shaving cream recipe.

My brother has been using a very chemically laden store-bought one, so I told him I would make him some. He wanted it to be just like the ones out of the cans that are nice and fluffy, so I’m glad I was able to “whip” this one up… pun intended!

This will last quite a while in the fridge, I think I’ve had mine last in the fridge for at least 3 weeks, probably more. What my brother does is he keeps a few days worth in a jar in the bathroom for easy access and refills it from the stash in the fridge when it runs out.

DIY Shaving Cream:

Supplies needed: Hand mixer or hand blender

Slightly heat the coconut oil and cocoa butter together in a double boiler so they melt, then put them in a bowl. Add the castile soap, baking soda and tea tree oil to the bowl. Then use a hand mixer  to whip the ingredients. This will create a nice fluffy foamy shaving cream. You can also use a hand blender, but it may not be as fluffy, but it will still work.

**It will last a few days unrefrigerated, but it’s best to keep it in the fridge. It will harden in the fridge, so make sure you thaw it before using again. After it has been in the fridge it may not be as fluffy as it was to begin with, but it still works as is, and you can always beat it with the hand mixer again.

We provide all the essential oils and other ingredients listed above specially shipped in from the U.S. which is certified organic and 100% original without dilution or added preservatives.
