Homemade Shaving Cream

Shaving cream can be fun and easy to make.  You may leave out the rosemary or you may put in lavender or any other scent you like.

1/3 cup Shea butter
1/3 cup virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup jojoba or sweet almond oil
10 drops rosemary essential oil
3-5 drops peppermint essential oil

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the shea butter and coconut oil, stirring until just melted. Remove from the heat and transfer to a heat-safe bowl. Add in the jojoba oil and the essential oils. Stir to mix.

Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill until solid. Remove from the refrigerator and whip using a hand beater or a stand mixer until light and fluffy. Spoon into a jar. Lid and keep in a cool, dry place.

Makes 8 ounces.

  1. I am contemplating a 'handmade Christmas' this year and have been looking for something to give the men in the family. This looks like a great choice. One question though. . How long will this last if left out?
