Homemade Shaving Cream for Men

Since Christmas, I’ve been having so much fun making body washes and sugar scrubs for my family and friends who are women.  About two months ago, the Mellow Man started complaining that his shaving cream was irritating his skin.  I got to thinking– All of the basic recipes for body wash, deodorant, and skin care can be used by men; however, men are likely to prefer something less floral and feminine.  That just means that you need to select a masculine blend of essential oils to make your homemade shaving cream.   There are a few resources for creating masculine blends of essential oils, and you may want to experiment on your own to make the perfect blend for your own homemade shaving cream, but I’m going to share the blend that I created.
