Looking for a homemade shaving cream that nourishes and protects sensitive skin while helping you get a good, close shave. Say goodbye to dry, itchy skin with our DIY Shaving Cream. Easy Shaving Cream Recipe.
HOMEMADE SHAVING CREAM
Looking for a unique and different Father’s Day Gift can be difficult. This year I decided to try my hand at making some homemade Shaving Cream for the husband. As many of you know, we have been using DoTerra Essential Oils at our house and have been finding so many great uses for them. Also, with my many food allergies, we have been slowly eliminating processed foods and chemicals…so I thought it would be fun to give DIY Shaving Cream a try. If the hubby didn’t LOVE it, I could use it to shave my own legs!
DIY SHAVING CREAM
Well, it turns that that Shaving Cream is really super easy to make and it works and smells great! I did test it out on myself because it was going to be a surprise for him. It really works and my skin really did feel super soft and smooth afterwards. I think I might just switch over to homemade Shaving Cream because it really was that easy. I also know exactly what is in it…nothing chemical or with preservatives.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE SHAVING CREAM
Shaving Cream Recipe
- 2/3 cup Shea Butter
- 2/3 Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup Olive Oil
- 10-20 drops of your favorite DoTerra Essential Oils
- 2 tablespoons of Baking Soda
- 6 drops of vitamin E optional
Melt Shea Butter and Coconut Oil in a double boiler.
Mix in Olive Oil and your doTerra and stir together.
Stir in the Baking Soda and then set in the fridge until it cools and hardens (usually a couple of hours).
When hardened mix up with a mixer until smooth and creamy.
Transfer to an airtight container. Should last for up to 3 months.
SHAVING CREAM LABELS
I also made some shaving cream labels to go onto your container or the container lid. They are 3 inches in diameter. They should fit most regular plastic container lids as it is a pretty standard size. I picked up this container at Hobby Lobby, but you should be able to find similar ones at your own craft store.
Then all you will need to do is print out the labels on white card stock (or even regular computer paper). I like to make sure and print them with a laser printer or have them copied onto paper with a copier so that the ink does not run on the label…especially if you will be using around water, which is usually the case when shaving.
Then simply cut the label out with a 3 inch paper punch (or scissors) and glue the label onto the lid with a simple glue stick. It works so well and the labels stay on just like a real label. Then you can wash off the label and reuse the containers.
