Lavender Shaving Cream

Using soap can disrupt the pH balance of the skin and this soap free shaving cream recipe uses nourishing natural ingredients which are much kinder.

Can be used for guys or gals - face, pits, legs or anywhere of your choice - but make sure you wash your hands between dipping ;-)


  • 2/3 cup Shea butter
  • 2/3 cup Coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon Almond oil
  • 10 drops tea tree oil
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil


Melt the shea butter and coconut oil in a pan over a low heat. Stir in the other oils.

  • Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until solid.
  • Take the mixture out and allow it to come to room temperature.
  • Whisk until light and fluffy. You can use a hand whisk or electric whisk.
  • Use it sparingly like an oil rather than lather it on like a foam or soap.
