This is just the best thing ever. Chemical free, all-natural, moisturizing, and smells amazing (I add 10 drops of lavender essential oil❤️). Most importantly, it’s easy to make. Takes me less than five minutes!
Here’s what you need:
1/2 cup olive oil (or grape seed oil)
1/4 cup Castille soap (I prefer unscented)
1/4 cup raw honey
Mix together in a bowl and add desired essential oils for fragrance if you wish. I add 8-10 drops of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil.
Pour into a pump bottle or squeeze bottle. Enjoy! I rarely need lotion anymore because this shave cream is so moisturizing. 🙌🏻
Why do you NEED this in your life?
Because you DON’T need harmful chemicals in your life.
Friends, if you don’t already have the Think Dirty app for your phone, please consider getting it. It allows you to scan the products in your home and see what the safety rating is.
Before I started making my shave cream and switched to natural products, I was using a shave cream called Pure Silk. I just looked it up on Think Dirty and it scored an 8 😷. This is on a 10 point scale with 10 being the most harmful.
What makes shave cream a threat to the body is mainly synthetic fragrance. Please read oh so many articles that are available supporting why no one should be using anything containing artificial fragrance. I will keep putting this idea in front of you as long as I’m breathing so don’t worry if you forget. 😂
Pure Silk shave cream also contains Laurel 23 ☠️ 😳. This is a known causer of cancer.
This DIY took me under 5 minutes to make or I wouldn’t be able to buy into it. I’m a busy mama and I need things quick and easy. I swear this is the best shave cream I’ve ever possessed and I plan on using it indefinitely.
Added bonus: it’s moisturizing! I rarely need lotion. 🙌🏻
