I have always wondered what gives store-bought shaving creams their texture. Call me bias, but after looking into store-bought deodorants, and lotions, I just can’t trust any store-bought skin care products. I want to know each and everything ingredient in my products, and I want to know how they can benefit my skin.
My DIY Rosemary Peppermint Shaving Cream, is actually very similar to my All natural body butter recipe, with a few little differences.
Make sure to be careful when making your own shaving cream. Only use a little bit, when you use the DIY Rosemary Peppermint Shaving Cream. Use a good quality razor that is easy to clean, and shave toward the end of your shower, so your pores have time to open.
Let’s get started with the ingredients:
- 1/3 Cup Shea Butter (Buy Here)
- 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil (Buy Here)
- 1/4 Almond Oil (Buy Here)
- Drops Rosemary Essential Oil (Buy Here)
- Drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Buy Here)
- 12 Pack Jars (Buy Here)
In a double boiler or a large mixing bowl placed on top of a saucepan with a little water, melt the shea butter and coconut oil.
Remove from heat, and let the mixture come to room temperature. Add the Almond oil, Rosemary, and Peppermint Oil.
Place bowl in the refrigerator and chill until sold.
Remove from the refrigerator and whip using a hand mixer until light and fluffy.
Put your shaving cream into a glass container of your choosing. I like to use and reuse canning jars.
