DIY Shaving Cream


  • 1/3 cup shea butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp almond oil
  • 1 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 15-20 drops essential oils
  • 2 tbsp castile soap


  1. Combine shea butter and coconut oil in a pan over low heat. Melt and stir together. Then add almond oil and essential oils and stir until combined.
  2. You can use whatever essential oils you prefer or your castile soap might already have a scent.
  3. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and place it in the fridge to cool and harden. Once the mixture is solid, pull it out and whip it up.
  4. Whip the solid mixture with a stand mixer or hand mixer until it becomes light and fluffy. If your mixture is very cold, you may want to let it set out on the counter to warm up and soften just a bit to make the whipping easier.
  5. Add the castile soap and whip up again until everything is combined. At this point, the mixture will be a little less light and fluffy, but still a great shaving cream mixture.
  6. Store the shaving cream in a clean glass jar in a cool, dry place.
