DIY Christmas Present: Shaving Cream

Shaving Cream




Ingredients

1/3 cup of Coconut Oil
1/3 cup of Shea Butter
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
1 tbsp of Johnson's Baby Soap


Steps

1. Put the Shea Butter and Coconut Oil in a jug and melt on the lowest heat setting (gas mark 1 for me), stirring occasionally

This has olive oil in it because I wasn't paying attention
Follow the recipe as I've written it!

2. Add Olive Oil and stir until all all mixed together, then remove from heat

3. Transfer to bowl and put in fridge until solid (this took about 24 hours for me)

4. Whip with a whisk to break it up and add 1 tbsp of Johnson's Baby Soap to mixture, whip for another 3-5 minutes



5. Put in jar

6. Add label with ribbon or string




Can be used of Face and Legs (so is a unisex gift) 


Benefits

Shea Butter is good for; renewing, repairing and protecting your skin and harsh climates, so cold winds of Scotland -I'm ready for ya!
Coconut Oil, good for dry and irritated skin -people with eczema need this in their lives!
Olive Oil is a good for hydrating and soothing the skin - I some times just rub olive oil on my skin before bed if my eczema is acting up


My brain had another melt down and I forgot to take any pictures of actually making this again -sorry


Enjoy!


Merry Christmas
