Natural Shaving Cream Recipe

Natural Shaving Cream Recipe:                                                

4 TBSP Shea Butter
3 TBSP Coconut Oil (not fractionated)
2 TBSP Jojoba Oil
2-5 drops of Favorite Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil
- suggestions: 
Aqualime, Peppercorn, Sensual Sandalwood, Mahogany Teakwood, Citrus & Sage, Citrus Cilantro.
Shaving Brush
Use a double boiler to melt your shea butter & coconut oil. You can melt these in the microwave but be sure to avoid overheating! Remove from heat when completely melted and add your jojoba oil and essential or fragrance oil and whip it with a beater. Transfer your container to the fridge and allow it to harden. Remove from fridge and use a hand held beater to whip until you have the consistency of frosting (light & fluffy). Transfer into your favorite plastic jar, avoid glass.  Your shave cream should last approximately 1 month. You can purchase all your ingredients from Pine Meadows including your plastic jars.
