After trying countless shavings creams I have come to the conclusion that when a shaving cream claims they are suited for sensitive skin it’s a bunch of bull. I have sever dry skin. I go through some serious itch fest the day after shaving. It makes me pretty miserable. Since I have an unhealthy amount of coconut oil and raw shea butter sitting around I decided to take control of this annoying issue and make my own.





  • In a small saucepan, melt shea butter and coconut oil over the lowest heat setting on the stove. Stir occasionally until fully melted. 
  • Add the carrier oil of your choice and stir until fully blended. Remove from heat.
  • Add essential oils. (Never add essential oils to heat, it will minimize their benefits)
  • Transfer mixture to a medium-sized bowl or any size jar and place in the fridge until it’s solid.
  • Remove from fridge and get ready to whip it up. If it’s in a jar you’ll need to transfer it to a medium-sized bowl first. Whip using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Scrape sides down as needed. Whip until fluffy ~ about 5-6 minutes depending on how cold your mixture is – then add castile soap and whip until fully combined.
  • Spoon shaving cream into an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place.



  • If you do end up getting water into the shaving cream it might not last long since it doesn’t have any preservatives in it.
