Is it just me, or do you also struggle with finding the perfect gift for guys? I LOVE making gifts since it seems so personal to create something with just that person in mind. However, I typically fall short when it comes to making gifts for the men in my life. That’s why I decided to make a gift my guys would ASK for year after year! This All Natural Shaving Cream gives your guy soft skin following a close shave AND it smells wonderful. Simply pair this shaving cream with a shaving cream brush and you’ve got a personal and thoughtful gift he will love. (Tangent: Afraid he won’t LOVE it? It’s not likely, but best to keep these responses in mind, just in case. You never know, right?)
It’s simple to make this shaving cream and it is awesome! You’ll need the following ingredients: (affiliates) coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil, shea butter and essential oils. I used Peppermint, sandalwood, Tea Tree and Wild Orange, but you can really use any oils you think he might enjoy.
Melt your coconut oil, fractionated coconut oil and shea butter in a double boiler. This should only take about 5 minutes after the water is boiling, so keep an eye on it.
Take your bowl off the double boiler, let it cool for 3 minutes, then add your essential oils.
Let the ingredients cool in the fridge for at least an hour until it is hard.
Whip it up! Place the hardened ingredients into a mixer and whip the ingredients for about 8 minutes.
Scoop the shaving cream into your container of choice and then print out your label. An awesome one is right here! If the label is too large for your container you can scale it down before printing.
I love this label because it’s actually 4-in-1! Select from four different labels. We suggest affixing your label along with the instructions and then slap some clear packing tape on top of your label. This will make it waterproof, which is essential for the bathroom. Do not forget the instructions! This shaving cream is NOT like the foam that comes out of an aerosol can….it’s so much better! The recipe yields about two cups.
Go ahead and whip up a few jars of this shaving cream for the guys in your life. Smooth skin and a clean shave are great gifts. You can even pair it with a shaving cream brush and stand (affiliate) for the complete gift. We know he will LOVE it and will remember you when he’s getting ready for the day.
