DIY Scented Shaving Creme Recipe For Smooth & Silky Legs

in Latest/Woman

Elusive as making shaving cream may seem, creating your own blend of simple ingredients can result in your very own –and it’s free from any preservatives, chemicals, or strange perfumes and dyes added to cream sold in stores.

You will need:

-2/3 cup Shea nut oil or Shea butter
-2/3 coconut oil
-1/4 cup olive oil or grapeseed oil
-10 to 20 drops essential oils like lavender, peppermint or ylang-ylang
-2 tablespoons of baking soda
-Contents of 2 vitamin E capsules (optional)

Directions:

1. Melt 2/3 cup of coconut oil and Shea nut oil together, and then turn off the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of olive oil or grapeseed oil.

2. When melted, add in 10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil.

3. Pour it into a container or leave it in the bowl (if you were using a double boiler.) Give it a good stir, and then set it in the fridge to harden. Once it has solidified, remove and let it soften slightly.

4. Add this, the contents of 2 vitamin E capsules if you’re using them, and 2 tablespoons of baking soda to an electric stand mixer (or use an electric hand beater, or a lot of elbow grease) and beat until it’s super light and fluffy and looks like you could spread it on a cupcake.

5. Apply generously to wherever you’re shaving and rinse when done. You can omit the baking soda and, if you want it odorless, the essential oil as well. Store in a cool dark area when not in use, it can keep up to a month.
