Essential Oil Shaving Cream

Happy Monday! This weekend I was exploring Pinterest and playing with my oils and came across this awesome shaving cream idea! Due to our dry climate, I've always dealt with having dry skin and I also have sensitive skin. Most shave creams really irritate me and I had yet to find one that didn't bother my skin. After using this one, my skin felt awesome and it wasn't irritated at all!! Win!

To make this shave cream you will need:
-2/3 cup pure Shea butter, 2/3 cup organic coconut oil, 1/4 cup organic olive oil, 10 drops of lavender essential oil and 10 drops of peppermint essential oil (these two oils I also added to my lotion and it helps to soothe my skin, good for eczema as well), and 2 tbsp of baking soda.
I melted the Shea butter and coconut oil then took them off the heat. I then added the olive oil and essential oils. Once everything was mixed, I set the mixture in the fridge to harden. After it was mostly hard, I took it out of the fridge, added the baking soda, and mixed everything together with an electric mixer (can also use a whisk). The mixture should be fluffy and it'll keep for a month! It works perfectly and it's free of all the crap in other shave creams. I found this recipe here.
Enjoy :)
