It is time to get back to basics. To times of old where you knew how to make things from scratch. People that had money are the ones that got to buy the fancy things at the store. For women and men both, you have to have shaving cream that works. This means moisturizing and soothing at the same time. Guys are really taking care of themselves now a days. If you both could use the same shaving cream designed for both of you, wouldn’t you want to try it? Here is how
This shaving cream is cheap to make, smells great, and does work. It is called Peppermint and Moisturizing Aloe Shaving Cream. There is no chemicals, additives, preservatives, or anything else harmful to your body. Remember this will not lather the way you are used to, this is because the junk has been removed. Use this recipe for great gifts and showers. It will last about a month to keep fresh.
1 tbsp. grated beeswax
1 tsp. borax powder
15 drops peppermint essential oil
2 tbsp. almond oil
1 tbsp. liquid lanolin
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup Aloe Vera gel
½ cup distilled water
The first step is to take a small saucepan and pour the distilled water into it and slowly bring to a boil. Then, add the borax powder. You will need to turn the temp down and simmer the powder until it dissolves. This takes around four minutes or less.
Now the next step. Mix beeswax, liquid lanolin, coconut and almond oil in another saucepan. Using only medium heat, melt the beeswax. You will need to stir constantly. Now, remove the pan from the heat.
Taking the mixture of borax, mix it into your second pan. Do not just pour it in all at once. Stir consistently really good. Now, just let it cool down to about room temperature. When it has cooled, then add Aloe Vera gel. You will need to use a wire whisk to mix really good.
For the awesome smell of your new shaving cream, use only essential oils like peppermint or even try strawberry, raspberry, or a nice strong scent of your man. A good nature or woods like pine or even an ocean scent would be awesome! Use a stirrer that you can throw away or a wooden spoon only when adding. The amount of drops is the amount of your smell you would like to have. It will have your bathroom smelling wonderful!
Using a bottle that has a squeeze top that is plastic is great. But for a gift, decorate a Mason jar that is wide mouthed. You need to keep this out of the sun and cool. So, just place in your bathroom cupboard in a dark place.
