I stopped buying shaving cream for a few months now. For one thing, I kept forgetting to put it on my grocery list. For another thing, it was getting expensive. I decided to make my own shaving soap. Something simple, fast and easy.
Sweet Monday’s Recipe for TEA TREE DELIGHTFUL Shaving Soap
· 1/4 cup of coconut oil( I used Dr. Bronner’s Coconut oil)
· 1/4 cup of liquid castile soap ( I used Dr. Bronners unscented)
· 1 tbsp. of olive oil
· 1 tsp of vitamin E
· 1/4 cup of water
· 8 drops of essential oil (I used tea tree oil)
· A mason jar for mixing (because you know I like to be fancy)
· A trusty squirt bottle (to store your finished product)
I chose tea tree oil as my essential oil because it’s great for getting rid of razor bumps. It works well on skin problems such as rashes and can help prevent the skin irritation from shaving. Why not cut to the chase and use it as your main essential oil in your shaving soap? You can also apply tea tree oil after shaving to prevent the infection of ingrown hairs.
Tea tree oil has the following properties:
anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-microbial, antiseptic, antiviral, disinfectant, energizing, stimulant
And the following uses:
But let’s focus on the anti-infectious, antiseptic, energizing, and stimulating properties… Awesome… Preventing acne and infections? Even more awesome…
So, here’s how it’s done: Put all the ingredients together in a jar then mix, shake, swirl, twirl, twerk… Whatever means you like as long as you mix it. It gets really foamy.
VOILA! All done. Ready for use. Before use, always shake. Make a foam by rubbing the soap together with your hands.
Homemade shaving soap. Saves money and the environment. It’s fast and easy to make. It’s good for your body and skin and it smells great. You just can’t go wrong.
A fun and foamy day to you.
