Natural Shaving Cream For Father’s Day

5 Materials
10 Minutes
Desire to make something personal for dad, but not willing to gift him products filled with toxins and harsh chemicals?

I got the perfect gift for you and it is eco friendly!
All you need for this shaving cream is baking soda, coconut oil, tea tree oil, shea butter, and a essential oil of choice.
Drop 2 tablespoons of shea butter. Shea butter is creamy and is considered nature’s very own “conditioner” so it is perfect to saturate the hair with moisture before shaving off for a cleaner cut.
Begin by scooping 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl. Coconut oil is great for the skin, makes it smooth, and moisturizes it.
Then 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is perfect for hair and nails, is filled with vitamin E, and soothes the skin during and after an irritating task such as shaving.

If the ingredients are a bit tough to mix, you can put it in the microwave to make it easier for mixing. 

After adding those ingredients, put in the refrigerator to thicken and harden for 8 minutes.
Once the mixture is chilled, add 1 ½ of baking soda.
Add 8 drops of an essential oil you believe dad will love. I used Bergamot, it is an awakening and citrus scent, perfect for elevating the mood and putting some pep in your step!
Whip all the ingredients together then


This stuff smells amazing and it is creamy and smooth! My dad is going to love this shaving cream, and I honestly believe with the tea tree oil in it, the small shaving bumps he gets will be gone :D
