DIY all natural shaving cream

1/3 cups coconut oil
1/3 cups shea butter
2 tbsp. almond or olive oil
3 tbsp. liquid castile soap
2 tsp. baking soda
10 drops essential oils 


  1. On low heat in a double boiler, melt coconut oil and shea butter. 
  2. Remove from heat and add almond or olive oil. 
  3. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until mixture is firm. This may take several hours. 
  4. When hardened, remove from fridge and mix with an electric beater. Start on low speed, and gradually increase gradually to high speed as the mixture becomes more like a whip and less like a solid mass. 
  5. While mixing, add castile soap, baking soda, and essential oils, then blend until combined.
