5f118620b63ea6d29c0767c41c30ca4e

Unlike a traditional shaving cream this doesn’t contain soap, which can dry the skin out, while oils will moisturize and create a protective layer over the skin as he shaves. Here is an awesome DIY shaving cream with coconut oil and shea butter that smells of  delicious rosemary and mint. It could be a gift for a husband, boyfriend, fiance or friend, I’m sure he will like it.

Ingredients

1/3 cup shea butter (72.67 grams)
1/3 cup virgin coconut oil (72.05 grams)
1/4 cup jojoba or sweet almond oil (54.88 grams)
10 drops rosemary essential oil
3-5 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions

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.
